This is an override tuning mod, meaning everything it does will apply to all sims in game, not just the currently played sim.

The Animal Rescue Mod allows your Sim to become an animal rescuer. They do NOT have to join the custom career for this, its just for added game play and realism.

Updated For My First Pet Patch
Everything is now in one zip file, download AnimalRescueModCareerStats.package and place in mods folder. Be sure to remove old versions from the mod folder first.

Updated: Pet Stats on Sim Stat - Earn Aspiration Points!


Putting a pet up for adoption will now grant Simoleans, based on their traits and training level. This is to allow for a way of gaining income with or without the custom animal rescuer career.

Pet Bowl Feeding including Auto Feeder is completely free. Rescuer sims have food donated to them!

All vet bills are half price and spaying is free.

Sims with the dog or cat lover trait that become sad after having a pet adopted, now receive a happy buff for successfully rehoming a rescued pet.

String edit to the pop up text when placing a pet up for adoption.


Your sim only has to leave for work once a week for an hour. They will do this autonomously as usual with a rabbithole career, but if for whatever reason they dont, make them attend work or you will not be paid. Depending on career level, your sim will gain simoleans on returning from work (reimbursed expenses for rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals! Performance gain has been increased to account for the one hour working week.
