GamesRadar’s Hope Bellingham leaped over fences far and wide to share news of The Petfinder Foundation’s partnership with To The Rescue!, the heartfelt dog shelter management simulator from developer Little Rock Games and publisher Freedom Games.
Dog shelter simulation game To The Rescue! has announced an animal charity partnership that will donate a percentage of the game’s profits to helping real dogs.
To The Rescue! allows players to run their own animal shelter with the intention of taking in, rehabilitating, and rehoming various breeds of dog.

This includes managing all of the dogs’ needs, holding fundraisers, and helping them find the perfect forever home.
