The Petfinder Foundation, Dog Shelter Sim To The Rescue! Celebrate National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day with Official Charity Partnership
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – 30 April, 2021 – To The Rescue!, the heartfelt dog shelter management sim from developer Little Rock Games and publisher Freedom Games, celebrates National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day today by announcing its official charity companion, The Petfinder Foundation.
Help dogs find their forever homes in the virtual world and real-life alike with To the Rescue!. This sim follows the journey of one dog lover’s mission to open a shelter, care for canines, and unite man’s best friend with loving new families. In addition to enjoying this uplifting adventure, every purchase of the game will benefit the efforts of the organizations and animals who inspired this tale, as Little Rock Games will be donating 20% of the title’s profits to The Petfinder Foundation.
The Petfinder Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that gives grants to shelters and rescue groups across North America to increase the effectiveness of animal adoption programs. These critical practices are also reflected in To The Rescue!, where volunteers will get to know the pups’ personalities and individual needs and use this invaluable information to make matches that will last a lifetime.
In addition to meeting with prospective new dog moms and dads and playing with the puppers, life as a volunteer in To The Rescue! spans the full shelter experience, from feeding hungry mouths and managing medication to behind-the-scenes efforts like financing the operation.
“When we chose the charity partner for our game we wanted to make sure our donation would have the biggest impact possible,” said Olivia Dunlap, co-founder, Little Rock Games. “We’re proud to partner with the Petfinder Foundation and are overjoyed that To The Rescue! will have a tangible impact both raising awareness of animal shelters and helping fund their amazing efforts.
To The Rescue! launches Q3 2021 on Nintendo Switch and Steam via Windows PC and Mac for $19.99.
