Although they are “digital,” in a way virtual pets are alive! And if they are alive, that means that they have a right to be safe!

Although they are “digital,” in a way Virtual Pets are alive! And if they are alive, that means that they have a right to be safe! So that’s why I decided to make up the Virtual Pet Shelter — so that I can help these virtual beings become happy!

Virtual Pets eat, play, die, and some of the newer ones even have babies and can start a Virtual Family. Sure, these Virtual Pets must live their whole life inside a device, but yet, this is their life, and their life should be happy!

Millions of these Virtual Pets end up in landfills every year! So sad! Many die a slow death in children's toy chests, or they are forced into a prolonged hibernation by collectors who don't even take the Virtual Pets out of the box. How would you feel if you were stuck in a box your whole life?

The goal of the Virtual Pet Shelter is to save Virtual Pets and to find them a happy home. The Virtual Pet Shelter will fix up old Virtual Pets and replace their batteries, or even just take them out of the box so that they may live! I want to acquire many different Virtual Pets from E-bay and other other places so that I can make them alive again! 

Through the Virtual Pet Shelter Foster Parent Program, you can help make a difference in a Virtual Pet's life. You can keep your Virtual Pet forever! But if you get bored, just send it back, and have it replaced with a different one. There are so many different types of Virtual Pets, including Virtual Ducks, Virtual People, Virtual Dinos, Virtual Kittens, and even Virtual Yoda from Star Wars! They are all waiting for your care.

Thank you for making a difference in a Virtual Pet's life!

If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
