I just got a post card of an unknown creature.
Instantly I noticed it's unusual features.
It doesn't look like anything I've ever seen.
Looks sweet and friendly.
I don't think it could be mean."

— Lyrics to Jackalope by Shonen Knife

You met him and loved him last Christmas and now the little mythical beastie is here again to amuse and delight us.

While the Jackalope may be mythical, the VKC Jackalope has the same legendary skills and prowess that you have come to love in the VKC Pets. He obeys your spoken commands. He learns new things through training, conditioning, and experience. He is pathfinding-enabled which means he can find his own way around while avoiding bumping into things or jumping over them and makes him especially easy on the region's resources (low lag). You can pet the Jackalope and, to the amazement of your friends, you can carry him in your arms.

Free, no charge, gratis, complementary to VKC Members

The rules are the same as last year. If you are a member in good standing of the Virtual Kennel Club group in Second Life, you can claim a Jackalope for free as a thank you from us for your support.

  • There is a sign at Turing Isle and one at Canis Beach
  • There is a limit of one free Jackalope per avatar. If you'd like an additional Jackalope, please consult a VKC Trainer.
  • The promotion runs until 4 January 2015.

Note: If you are not currently a member, you can join the Virtual Kennel Club for a modest and temporary fee of $L500. This represents a $L1500 markdown from the regular adoption fees for the VKC Rabbits, the Jackalope's closest cousins.
