LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – May 12, 2023 – To The Rescue!, the heartfelt dog shelter management simulator from developer Little Rock Games and publisher Freedom Games, jumps onto the Nintendo Switch eShop on Thursday, May 25th, 2023. Twenty percent of proceeds from both the Switch and PC versions go towards The Petfinder Foundation, supporting real world animal shelters.
Take charge of the local animal shelter to help stray pups find new and loving furever homes. In between belly rubs and sessions of playing fetch, ensure the inner workings of the shelter run properly. Foster a warm and welcoming environment for future pet parents to come and meet their soon-to-be companions.
Find the perfect fit between people and puppers 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. 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 budget. Maintain 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.
“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,” said Olivia Dunlap, co-founder, Little Rock Games. “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.
