In Animal Shelter Simulator, the player runs and manages a cat and dog shelter. The main objective is to take care of the pets and find the best homes for them. While interacting with the four-legged cuties, the player can play with them, feed them, and treat them. According to the game developers, each pet has its individual traits while specific indicators track its condition and mood.

We aimed to fully capture the operation of a shelter, keeping in mind the ideal balance between simulation and fun. This approach and an adequate variety of gameplay make Animal Shelter Simulator a great game for both younger and older animal lovers,” says Games Incubator’s CEO, Marek Parzyński.

Gameplay is enhanced by a whole array of additional features. The player can organize photo shoots for the pets while also dealing with their finances. Construction mode is also a major part of Animal Shelter Simulator. It allows the player to arrange the space and expand the shelter with veterinary clinics, additional buildings with pens, and more.

After its successful release on PC, this unique simulator is now coming to Xbox. More importantly, versions for other consoles, including PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch, are also being developed.
