To The Rescue!, the heartfelt dog shelter management simulator from developer Little Rock Games and publisher Freedom Games, jumps into the loving arms of Windows PC and Mac via Steam on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021. The Nintendo Switch version goes up for adoption in Q1 2022. 20% of proceeds from both versions will be donated to The Petfinder Foundation to support real-world animal shelters.
Take charge of the local animal shelter to help stray pups find new and loving forever homes. In between belly rubs and sessions of playing fetch, ensure that the inner workings of the shelter are running properly. Foster a warm and welcoming environment for future pet parents to come and meet their soon-to-be companions.
Ensure people and puppers find their perfect fit by matching between four dog sizes, seven breed types, and dozens of individual personality traits for adopters and doggos. It’s a bittersweet day when furry friends leave the shelter, but the happiness on their faces knowing they’ve found their families warms the heart every time.
Taking care of adorable fuzzy butts isn’t all fun and games; there’s inevitably more to be done. Balance feeding, grooming, and exercise schedules for all of the dogs. Treat, pun intended any illnesses that may arise to keep the pups in tip-top shape for the next game of tug-of-war. Manage shelter resources by upgrading facilities and replenishing inventory, all on a tight budget. Keep up good standing with other members of the neighborhood to keep the shelter support strong. It may take an army, but those fuzzy faces make it more than worth it.
Olivia Dunlap, co-founder, Little Rock Games had the following to say regarding the matter:
To The Rescue! balances the wholesome feel of a loving and cozy animal game with some of the hectic realities of running a real animal shelter. We wanted to pay respect to all of the hardworking volunteers running actual animal shelters and raise awareness for their profession through the power of video games!
To The Rescue! will be available for $19.99 USD. The development team will pledge 20% of all profits from the game to The Petfinder Foundation.
