The Animal Rescue Career is a custom career.

Patch required: PC / Mac
Expansion required: Cats&Dogs

Dog shelter
Don't you just love animals, but also want to help those who need it. Come work at a dog shelter. You can become a Dog Trainer, own your own Animal Shelter or Veterinarian

Intern (5/H)
Explore the shelter, watch how the real professionals do it. Maybe you can help a little while watching.

Receptionist (35/H)
Answer the phone, make appointments, order food and treatments.

Animal Caregiver (45/H)
Take care of all the lovely animals, feed them, bathe them and love them.

Assistent animal rescue patrol (50/H)
Go outside to find animals who need to be rescued.

Animal rescue patrol (60/H)
Lead the mission to go outside and find animals who need to be rescued.
Branch 1: Animal shelter
You now move on from a rescue center to an animal shelter, if you work hard enough you'll own your own Animal shelter!

Caregiver (60/H)
Take care of all the lovely animals, feed them, bathe them and love them.

Animal shelter Attendant (80/H)
You now have a big role in the Animal shelter. You lead the team, make the work schedules, promote the animals for adoption and match the right animal with the right owners.

Owner of a small Shelter (60/H)
You start from the beginning. You have a few rescued animals, some ducks, dogs, cats and a little underweight bunny. Promote your shelter, donate money for supplies. You may not make much money but you do good work.

Owner of a well known shelter (120/H)
All that promoting worked off, you now have a small staff. You even have your own website! You post animals ready for adoption on there and people looking for a pet regularly check the site.

Owner of multiple animal shelters (300/H)
You really made a name for yourself, or atleast your shelter. The way you find the animals, the way you brind these animals back to health and the way you treat the animals. People adore you and your staff for that!
Branch 2: Dog trainer
Love dogs and want to teach them to not be scared or aggressive? Become a dog trainer!

Base training (55/H)
Give base training, learn the dogs to sit, heel, paw and more.

Puppy trainer (65/H)
Teach the puppy's to listen to their names, to sit and teach the owners how to make them listen.

Specialized scared dog trainer (80/H)
Some dogs are scared of everything. They won't go outside, they won't come out of their bench or they won't even come close to you. Give them their confidence.

Specialized aggresive dog trainer (100/H)
Some dogs can be aggresive. It's up to you to figure out why and solve the problem, so that the dog and the owner can be happy.

Dog whisperer (380/H)
You are the best trainer around. People call you the Dog whisperer. If a dog has a problem, people will come to you!
Branch 3: Veteriniarian
Want to take care of animals when it's make or break? Become a Veterinarian, treat wounds, vaccinate and euthanize animals.

Receptionist (35/H)
You're new here so you've got to start from the bottom. Answer the phone, make appointments, order food and treatments.

Treatment adviser (65/H)
Check the animals and advise the owners on their treatments. Does the pet need a shot or maybe some pills? Maybe they need an operation? You advice!

Operator of medical equipment (85/H)
You are the operator of the medical medical equipment, such as x-ray machines.

Veterinarian (140/H)
Now you are really a vet! You do all the dirty work, by that I mean surgery's.

Well known veterinarian (225/H)
If something is really wrong with a pet, they call you. You get calls from all over, sometimes you even have to be flown out, sometimes the neighbour needs you. If it is a hard surgery, you're there!

Download the file and added it to your mods folder.
I also attached a Neia Careers Commons package which you will need to run this mod.

The earlier problem with the Last Exception mention is also fixed!

If you have a career request, let me know!
Love, Librasims

I got them too, and I have sent you a PM as I know how to fix it If you still need help fixing this career
#11 Old 13th Feb 2019 at 2:25 AM
Is this a rabbit hole career or does the Sim actually do these things? Also, as far as a suggested career, I found one on SimsStudio you might be able to help with? You can find it

Any word on if this has been fixed? Is it a rabbithole career? I REALLY love this concept, but would prefer to see it as a Work From Home career.

Hi, Yes the problem is fixed and updated for the latest patch! It is a rabbit hole career. As far as I am aware all custom careers are. Hope this helped you out and hope you'll have fun with this career!

Hi again! Adore your careers. The card that pops up upon initial joining the career is blank on this one as well, except on the panel it does say "intern". I'm going through my custom careers right now, so I thought I would just give you a heads up in case it's something that you think would need immediate fixing. Have a good day!

This is since I installed the Animal Rescue mod and my sim is to go to work. She is not going and I can not tell her either to go since there is no response... Anyone that could help me out with this?

Same thing happened to me too.

He won't go to work and clicking go to work does nothing.

I am getting the issue that when my sim does not go to work (I know the description mentions that they only go once a week) she gets an angry call from the boss and a warning that her performance will do go. I click for her to go to work but I cannot make her...
