Recent disasters hurry World of Warcraft to release this year's charity pet

13 September 2017

"Shadow" the fox can now be found in the in-game store, priced at $10.

Two weeks ago we reported that Games Done Quick held an event to raised money for Harvey Relief, and today Blizzard announced that they would be releasing their 2017 charity pet ahead of schedule in response to the disasters going on world wide.

If you don't play World of Warcraft, but would like to support the disaster relief effort, you can do so directly via the American Red Cross website. Blizzard will donate 100 percent of sales to charity, split evenly between the American Red Cross and the IFRC. This purchase is not tax deductible. The American Red Cross Disaster Relief of course helps people with medical care and emergency services throughout the United States, and the IFRC responds to disasters across the globe. At the end of the day, curl up next to this cuddly canidae and admire its color-changing coat with its light and shadow effects. It's yours to keep.

Blizzard's description for the Shadow the Fox can be read below. No papers to sign, and it's already had all its shots! Once Shadow is activated, every account both present and future will have access to it and is able to participate in pet battles to gain rewards and open up daily requests. It will appear in each character's pet and mount journal. Also you can use it to fight for its life in pet battles, if you're a monster. Will you be picking it up and helping to support the cause?
