Do you have a pet that you don't really care about? Maybe you adopted him or her for the PSI, made an annoying name typo, or the critter doesn't fit your style anymore, or you're short on time, or just plan to close your Webkinz account for good.
Here is the idea: donate the pet! There always are thousands of players who'd LOVE to have another pet just like yours!
How would it work? You'd register your pet with Donation Registry, a specialized room like Dr. Quack's. The pet (but not the PSI) will immediately disappear from the account. Any player can check in the Registry if a desired pet type/gender is available. If it is, the player can immediately adopt him or her by paying a significant sum (say, 3000 kc) to the Registry and receive the pet, whom they can name as they want. Naturally, it will be impossible to donate the LAST pet. It'd be nice if a symbolic, non-transferable prize (badge, balloon, small poster) were given for donating each pet.
Important note #1: The adopted pet would NOT come with PSI or adoption extras. Important note #2: The adoption would NOT count towards account extention.
The benefits of such idea are too numerous to count, but the most important one is that pets will be happier! They'll get a second chance to have someone to actually play with, rather than gathering dust in a forsaken house room.
I think that is a GREAT idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am actually one of those people...the one that will sometimes adopt the pet just for the gifts and PSI. I have some pets (and I hate to say this) that I really just don't use on my account. Plus there are a lot of kids out there whose families just can't afford to buy them their own Webkinz. This would be their chance to have more on their account. I think it's an extremely generous idea and you have clearly put a lot of thought into it!
I think you should suggest this to Ganz, and I will too!
REP FOR YOU!!!!!

I dunno... really what are the benefits if you don't get any bonus with it. Even if a family can't afford it, the pet isn't going to extend their playing time, as you have clearly stated, and they must at least have a pet on there to be playing to begin with. So no, I don't think this has much purpose.
Hey did you know there are organization that give stuffed animals away to kids in disaster ares so they have something to cuddle? I like your idea for accout dissolving...it would be nice to see someone get things that want them...I like it!!!!
