Animal Shelter game grants you the opportunity to tackle the challenging task of running an Animal Shelter for dogs, cats, rabbits, strays and other rescued animals.

Save our four-legged friends!
Animal Shelter game grants you the opportunity to tackle the challenging but also highly rewarding task of running an Animal Shelter for dogs, cats, rabbits, strays and other rescued animals. Witness firsthand how much effort goes into helping abandoned and injured animals as you handle a number of tasks necessary for your shelter to operate smoothly.

Clean Them
Your rescues will need to take a lot of steps on the path to improved health, and good hygiene is the very first one. Get your hands a little dirty so that their paws stay clean and their spirits soar high.

Take them for a walk
What better way to burn off all that excess energy than a good, old-fashioned trot out in the fresh air? Keep your animals stimulated and entertained. You can be sure they'll be starved for attention!

As you succeed in your efforts, you will be faced with additional challenges. Make sure to turn them into opportunities as you invest in your facilities and expand according to your growing needs.

Convince them
The ultimate purpose of your initiative and the most rewarding conclusion to all of its efforts – when an animal makes its way to a brand new, loving home. Look after your rescues and ensure they are adopted by your shelter's visitors.

Great game but….

I love this game! This is a entertaining game that you can play for hours. I played this game about everyday but realized a glitch that I hate! The first glitch is when you train your pet they go in the training center in the middle of the map. But the problem is when you go to the pet and press adoption and it says pet not ready to get adopted, and you press take care of it. It starts glitching a lot like once you press it you go inside the pet. This might just be for me but it’s so annoying! You have to leave the game and get back in to fix it. I still have pets that are stuck in that training place!
There’s also 1 more when you go into exploration, and bring a pet to the cleaning area I would put the pet down wash it but it would not let me pick the pet back up! You would have to get out of exploration and teleport it back to its cage. Otherwise the game is so fun and will entertain you for hours. There’s not to many adds that rarely pop up. I think you should get this game and maybe one day they will fix these glitches!

Great game! I love the update, and just have a few suggestions

First of all, this is a great game full of a diverse group of animals, not just dogs and cats, and the new updates are amazing!
All I have is a few suggestions.
1. There should be a few more injuries than cuts and scratches. Like, and illness or even support for extremely nervous dogs. I just thought that it would be more interesting than putting bandages on cuts.
2. Maybe, animals could have backstories that you learn about more and more as you take care of them. And the adopters could have more information, like how much experience they’ve had, what breed or kind of animal they want. That would be really cool.
3. This isn’t really that important, but I saw that the shelter is on a road with nothing on the other side. Maybe there could be houses that you don’t see the people but you see animals playing outside, and once in a while, you could see wild animals strolling around in the field. That could add a more charming element to the setting.
That’s all I have for now! Thanks for reading, and I hope you take these suggestions into consideration!

Good job but need some work…

The app runs super well! However, there’s a few things that I feel are needed to improve the game to make it more enjoyable.

Future updates to consider

Improved graphics and animal models

The models of the animals are not only not really realistic, but they’re also very stiff. I noticed this, especially when you’re walking the animals… It would be great if you could make their walking animations more fluid and introduce things like the animals vocalizations being here such as a dog barking occasionally in the shelter. I also feel that it would be a cool idea to add Weather to the game not only would it make it more diverse, but it would introduce new environments and new challenges…


As a person with low vision who plays this game, I feel that having an immersion immersive audio experience is a must not only does it give the games aesthetic better, but it also shows what the developers can do. I would push to include things like nature sounds into the game.


The game literally only has two songs! That’s really bad. It needs to have at least two more. Not only would it make it more experience worthy, but it would also encourage players to understand the aesthetics just a little bit better. could you please please please update this? I’m sure many players would greatly appreciate it, including myself.
