Methods to get free pets in Adopt Me!

Log in daily to get Star Rewards

You can get free pets in Adopt Me simply by logging in daily and accumulating Stars. Every time you log in, you get Stars based on the amount of time you play the game.

Logging in daily and playing Adopt Me will allow you to collect a high amount of Stars. Thereafter, head to Star Rewards and check for the pets that can be purchased with them.

The price of pets that you can get from Star Rewards varies. A Ginger Cat costs 210 Stars while a Starfish requires 550 Stars to unlock.

Apparently, making log-in streaks in Adopt Me is also desirable. You get bonus Stars for a five-day streak and a thirty-day streak provides you with a Cracked Egg.

Adopt Me also has pet wear that are cosmetics for your favorite pets.

Starter Egg

At the outset of your journey in Adopt Me, Sir Woofington hands out a Starter Egg that contains a free pet. You can hatch this egg by completing certain in-game objectives and then selecting between a dog or a cat as your pet.


Events are arguably the best way to get limited-time pets for free in Adopt Me. For instance, the developers released a Halloween update in October 2022 that has mini-games.

Players can take part in these mini-games, earn Candy, and get free event rewards including pets such as Chimera, Evil Basilisk, and more.

Pets that are released during events are removed from the game alongside the event.

Earn in-game money

Bucks in Adopt Me can help you get free pets, and there are many ways to earn them. These include:

  • Complete blue objectives (6-7 bucks).
  • Complete orange objectives (12 bucks).
  • Get a paycheck every 15 minutes when you’re active.
  • Money Trees. A single tree can grant eight bucks/day and through this way, you can get 100 bucks/day.

Free Legendary pet locations in Adopt Me!

Interestingly, Adopt Me developers have added free Legendary pets to random locations as an incentive for players to explore the map.

The places where you can find free Legendary pets are:

  1. Cross the bridge in front of the hospital and enter the Best Shop Ever. Inside, enter the vent that says Nothing to see here.
  2. Try to cross the Exit section of the game with a plunger.

These locations are basically glitched/underdeveloped and might not contain a Legendary pet every time. However, you can keep revisiting them occasionally until you get the desired reward.

Adopt Me has its own trading system with which players can trade pets with each other for free. The currency of these trades isn’t Robux implying that you won’t have to spend real money for it.

Following some experienced players is recommended as they could be willing to trade rare pets that you’re yet to unlock.

If you don’t want to grind for free pets in Adopt Me, redeeming the game’s codes is certainly the best option for you. We already have a list of codes for Adopt Me, so make sure to check that out.
