you could get lucky at the pound! thats one way anyway. or you could see if users are giving away pets for free. But trading is probably the easiest way uwu

theres only a few options that I can think of.
1. Lucky pound catches - you can snag a rare if you’re lucky and early!
2. December 18th - every year, an advent box on the 18th holds 3 rares+ for you, completely free!
3. Free Adoptions/Guveaways - sometimes quitting users will give away their pets and might just be giving away rares! Same with giveaways :3
4. Events - Events like summer, Halloween and Easter usually end up having pets that are rare, you just have to make sure to get tokens.

Edit;also make sure you’re only bumping your thread once it falls off the first page, anything before that is considered spam and your thread could get locked!

the pound has pets that are from users who have gotten banned, or donated

the rarity depends on how much of a pet there is, back around when cs was older you could still adopt pets(?) and not many users were around to adopt those pets which makes em rare now. that's where they originate from!

(i'm assuming lolol-)

    A pet's rarity is determined based on how many copies of a given outcome exist in the game, compared to how many active accounts the site has. Basically, a pet that is very common is so abundant that there's enough of them that, theoretically, every player could own one. Rare pets, on the other hand, are scarce enough that there aren't enough of them for everyone to own one.

    A lot of factors affect a pet's possible rarity. To start with, there's the initial chance of getting an outcome from your adopts. An outcome can be set to have a low chance of growing from a newborn, which would make it more likely for many people to miss it.
    The age of a pet is also influencing the rarity. Older pets tend to become scarcer because users stop playing, and their accounts with all their pets become inactive. Additionally, more new players will join who were never around to adopt those old pets.
    Some pets, like several types of event pets, are rare or uncommon because users had to put in effort to obtain them, and not everyone has the time to collect a full event set.

    You could somewhat categorize rares into three categories (that often mix) based on how you obtain them: event rares, monthly rares, and old rares.
    Sometimes there are rare outcomes from regular monthly litters. It doesn't happen very often (usually we at most get some uncommon outcomes), but occasionally a pet's growth chance is so low that it just turns rare right away (or really quickly). Any user has the chance to have this pet grow from one of their adopts, you just have to get lucky.

    Event pets from our banner hunt events (Easter, Summer, Halloween) often turn out uncommon and rare because of the effort involved to get them. Many people don't get full sets, and those who do may not be able to get doubles for trading away.
    These may be some of the most easy to obtain rares: The basic concept of those events is simple (find a hidden banner on the site, get event currency from it, trade the collected currency in for a variety of prizes), so just participating and getting any of the non-freebie adopts means you have a good chance at owning something rare.

    Pets slowly turn more rare as they get older, so if you accumulate old uncommons, there's a good chance they'll eventually turn rare. Your best bet is with uncommons from 2010 and 2011.
    These pets weren't initially rare when they were first released, but they're simply so old that they're not common to find any more.


    The best way to obtain already released rares without trading for them is, in fact, through the Pound or other users' free adoption groups. Because the Pound is a feature that lets users adopt confiscated and donated pets that once belonged to other users, it means there's a lot of old stuff in there! It's not so much that they came from the Pound, as the Pound is just a "holding" account - but it's one major way of re-distributing existing pets without trading.
