The Avatar Lending Program, or ALP, is The Daily Neopets' signature lending service to help our members get new avatars! We currently lend almost all the item avatars, and are saving for a Bony Grarrl Club to add to our items-for-lending. On the pet front, we run chain lends for every pet, petpet, and petpetpet avatar :)
Get ahead and read over our policies, then request the item you wish!
ATTENTION — The ALP team would like to remind you to ensure we can contact you when you apply for a lend. If your inbox is full, your neomail is sent to Neofriends only, you're silenced, or you are under 13, please change these settings or provide alternate contact information. If we are unable to contact you, your request will get deleted.
|Ruki - Mummified Chain Unavailable!|
Unfortunately the owner of our Ruki has had his account frozen for unknown reasons. A ticket has been sent to TNT to get this sorted out. In the meantime because our Ruki is on this frozen account it will not be available for lends until further notice. We're hoping TNT resolves the ticket swiftly, but this may not be the case.
I'd like to ask that if you need this avatar and haven't requested it yet to please wait until we've reopened lends so our requests don't get cluttered.
At this time we are not looking for a replacement pet, and if it comes to that I'll make a separate post.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.

|Houston, we have a problem...|
As one of the primary lenders for the ALP, many of the items for lending are on my account. The other day, I came online to find I was logged out of my account. I didn't think anything of it, as I had just finished cleaning out my PC (including dumping temp internet files and cookies). I collected my interest, and left for the day. Today, when I went to set up lends, I logged in to find all of my high-end ALP items missing. These are also, sadly, the items that get the most requests. I of course changed my password right away (as I do every few months anyway for security), but the damage so far, has been done.
I've sent off a ticket to TNT, as they have been returning items for some people in light of the many accounts that are getting compromised, so there is still hope. But for now, until I get things sorted out, certain lends have to be suspended until I can replace the items. Requests that are in the queue waiting to be filled will stay in the queue until I'm able to replace the items, so don't panic if you don't hear from us, but we won't be accepting new requests until I can sort out the item situation.
So far, the items affected include:
-Bony Grarrl Club (this one hurts, and if TNT is able to return anything, I'm hoping it's this)
-Zafara Double Agent Plushie*
-Faerie Queen Doll*
*Another staff is looking into helping with these items, so they don't need to be suspended yet, but as of right now, no new requests will be accepted for Meowclops or BGC lends.
I'll keep you all informed as I get more information. Explained the situation thoroughly to TNT, so I'm hoping they'll be able to help us out soon.

|Changes to Avatar Pet Lending!|
Due to some recent unforeseen circumstances and changes in our staff, you may have noticed your Pet Requests have been going unanswered or are a couple months after you've sent in your requests. I would like to offer you our sincere apologies for any inconveniences this has caused. To help overcome these obstacles we've assigned a new leader for our Pet Lends. For now and the foreseeable future pet lends will be handled monthly by Deboratibi and occasionally myself.
Currently we are still unable to offer the Grey + Huggy chain as we are still waiting on the pesky little Huggy to age. Stay tuned for updates on this chain.
Earlier this evening Deboratibi has sent out neomails to those who sent in tickets, please respond as soon as you can so she can get the chains lined up and set for June. Chains will not be running this month due to the large amount of people that need to be notified and we are starting late this month. By running them next month it gives us more wiggle room in case there is a delay with the chain.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.

|Grey & Huggy Chain Suspended!|
Due to an unforeseen occurrence. Our grey pet with the aged Huggy on it has been lost in transit. It appears the pound decided to keep our pet and not return it, so it's lying in limbo right now. We've recreated our Grey pet and are just waiting for the new Huggy to re-age. Once the Huggy is aged this chain will become available again. You may continue sending in requests for this chain and we'll keep them on file for when this chain is ready to go again. Apologies for the inconvenience!
"I'm all alone. There's no on here beside me."
Additionally our chains will be starting a few days late this month. I'll be processing requests this afternoon to get things set up, so watch for Neomails.

|July Pet Chains Delayed & Huggy Re-Aged|
As lookups have returned, the July pet chains are being run as per usual. Thank you for your patience!
In other news, the ALP is able to offer the Huggy avatar once again! The Huggy attached to our Grey Wocky has aged and will give the avatar when you view the pet lookup of our avatar pet while it is in your possession.
I can help now!
This also means we cannot process applications until lookups return, but if you would like to apply to be a part of the "Grey Wocky - *sigh*" & "Huggy" chain the next time it runs, now is the time! We retain all applications until we are able to address them so yours will be in the system waiting for us.
We will keep you updated as to when the chains will run again. Those of you currently down for a July chain will receive a Neomail with this information. Thank you for sticking with us!
