[[http://dragonadopters.com/ Dragon Adopters]] is an adoptable Web site [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin about adopting dragons]], although there is a [[DinosaursAreDragons Dino]] subspecies available. Sometimes considered the rival to ''Website/DragonCave''. (Which site is better is certainly arguable.)

You start out by adopting an egg, most of which are dragon eggs (the only exception is the Dino). You then raise it by letting people visit your dragon and age, sounds like traditional adoptable fare. You can adopt up to seven dragons, or release dragons to free up a slot. The current [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon breeds]] are [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_0 Western Dragon]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_1 Eastern Dragon]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_2 FurDragon]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_3 Wyvern]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_4 Lizardus]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_5 Dino (not really a dragon)]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_6 Petro Dragon]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_7 FelidDragon]], [[http://dragonadopters.com/about_8 Dark Dragon]] and the newest addition,[[http://dragonadopters.com/about_9 Plesio Dragon]] .

Each dragon is of a [[ElementalPowers certain element]] and produces 'aura' of that element: blue aura for water, red for fire, etc. They also produce 'Dragon Scales', 'Dragon Fur' or 'Reptile Scales'. These resources can be used to buy items, and even [[UnlockableContent bonus elements and a certain item]].

All the site's artwork is done by the Admin Thaz. The site also has an art gallery where users can put up sprite edits, or full-out fanart on the website.

New Dragon breeds are released every few months.
