Dive deep into Freedom games’ simulator To The Rescue

This amazing simulation title will highlight every key aspect of running an animal shelter. Each day new dogs will walk into your humble abode looking for a caretaker.

This will ensure that gamers receive a randomized dog with unique needs and behavior. Each dog has special needs and demands, which you will need to meet in order to raise their chances of finding a forever home. Each dog has a preference for food, which is color-coded on its bowl. You have to pick the right colored treats in order to keep the dog happy and healthy.

Match owners with a perfect dog to raise the reputation

The goal of each shelter is to find a forever home for innocent fur babies. The task might seem easy on the surface, but it takes considerable effort and patience to pull off. Gamers will have to not only keep the dogs happy but also cure any inappropriate behavior. This will ensure that potential caretakers will allot them high ratings, which will help you reduce the burden from your shelter.

Each successful adoption will significantly raise your reputation, and this will reinforce everyone’s faith in your capabilities. In case you make mistakes and euthanize more dogs than needed, then the game will topple your reputation and cause you to lose out on opportunities. Therefore, it is crucial to maintain your reputation rank and properly allocate resources to each dog.

Developers to include a unique customization feature for Kickstarter backers only

In an amazing dog shelter simulation like this one, it would make complete sense to have a customization feature. Animal lovers the world over have already faced gut-wrenching moments of losing their dear pet. This is not an easy fact to digest, and every owner sees flashbacks of all the happy moments. The studio can insert a special customization feature, which will allow everyone to immortalize their dear pets inside the game.
