VSPETS is an Internet competition for all pets. Enter your own pet and start competitions against other pets. Win battles to earn coins, and redeem coins for prizes in the store!

THE BASICS

3 Day Battles:
Battles are competitions between two pets which last for three days. People across the world vote and share their thoughts, comments and opinions on the match-up throughout the duration of the battle. At the end of the battle, a winner is determined based on votes from the Internet community.


Winning, Losing, and Ties:
Winning a battle on VSPETS is the ultimate rush. Not only are you rewarded by knowing your pet is extra special, you also receive the most possible Paw Points and Pet Coins from the battle. If your pet happens to lose a battle, you neither lose nor gain Pet Coins or Paw Points. In the event your battle ends in Draw, the two pet combatants split the winnings evenly.
