To The Rescue! might let you pet the dog but it’s giving these furry pals homes that really counts.
Yes, we’ve gone from murdering gangsters to talking about dog adoption but, tonal whiplash aside, To The Rescue! could be another one to look forward to. It puts you in charge of a dog shelter and has you rescuing dogs and giving them whatever treatment (through various minigames) need to get back on their four feet.
But the ultimate, and admirable, goal is to find the puppies new homes, making sure they never find themselves on the streets again. Work your magic and, when people come to look round the shelter, they’ll see those big, pleading eyes and leave with a dog in tow. Altogether now? Awwwwwwwwwwww.
On top of that, 20% of the game’s profits will go to animal charity The Petfinder Foundation. To The Rescue! has certainly grabbed our attention, to the point where we twice had to stop ourselves typing “fur babies”.
You won’t have long to wait to get your hands on To The Rescue!’s PC and Mac incarnations, which arrives this November 4th. There’s a Switch version in the pipeline but it’s been delayed till Q1 2022. You can check out the trailer above or wishlist this dogtastic sim on Steam.
