The Pet Shop

Dogs and Cats are pets, friends, and a source of treasure - that's win-win!
The introduction of the Pet Shop provides an opportunity for each of your Sims to own a pet - whereas the introduction of pets in the game took the form of a stray dog that your very first Sim meets and befriends on their new home lot.

Pets in the game do more than serve as companions - they also serve as a potential source of Simoleons as well as Life Points thanks to their habit of finding and digging up the odd treasure.

The following pets are presently available in the game:


  • Greyhound - 1-Star - Cost = 5 LP
  • German Shepherd - 2-Stars - Cost = 18 L
  • Labrador - 2-Stars - Cost = 20 LP
  • Golden Retriever - 2-Stars - Cost = 22 LP
  • Dalmatian - 2-Stars - Cost = 25 LP
  • Husky - 3-Stars - Cost = 75 LP
  • Robo Dog - 3-Stars - Cost = 80 LP


  • British Shorthair - 1-Star - Cost = 6 LP
  • Maine Coon - 2-Stars - Cost = 18 LP
  • Siamese - 2-Stars - Cost = 22 LP
  • Toyger - 2-Stars - Cost = 25 LP
  • Black - 2-Stars - Cost = 30 LP
  • Bengal - 3-Stars - Cost = 75 LP
  • Bejeweled Blitz's Anchovy - 3-Stars - Cost = 75 LP
  • Robocat - 3-Stars - Cost = 80 LP


In addition to the above pets you can also purchase Rabbits via the Pets Section of the in-game store.


Pet Accessories including Dog Houses, feeding bowls, and toys can be purchased in the Pets Section of the in-game store.

Which pet you buy really depends on which you can afford and which you think is best. With respect to the Star ratings, while it is not officially stated, the higher the star-rating it seems that the more likely the pet is to find good items.

Managing Pets

Once your pet is placed when you tap on them you will find two options - Rename and Relocate.

The Rename command allows you to name the pet any name you like.

The Relocate command allows you to put your pet up for Adoption - but be careful in selecting that as it is the game's way of DELETING the pet. Once you put it up for adoption it is not possible to get it back.

The second option is to have another Sim family take over ownership of the pet. You can select the family via the Relocation command.

I'm on level 16 and my friend has a dragon and I wanted one, but in my pet store it only gives me the cat and dog options.. My app is updated to the latest one and I've completed that magical quest thing but I still don't have any dragons or reindeers in my pet store like my friend does.. Any help?

Added 3rd Sep 2015, ID #605143

Basically, you have to get the mystery towers, located near the skate park! You have to do a quest to get them and then you have to do broomstick flying as part of a hobby! You will not have to complete the hobby to get the dragons! I have two! On cost 50,000 and the other 100,000![img][/img]

For anyone who needs help on getting money, I found a patio cheat/glitch search it up on YouTube or whatever but it REALY DOES WORK. I got like 500,000 in about 5 mins. If it doesn't work though it's cause the new update but I recommend highly that you try it.

Tell me if you find a way to get free LP because that is what I'm stuck on an I'm realy wanting to get a pet. Pls help...!?

0h yeah, it needs to be a lp cheat WITHOUT social network-Facebook,Twitter,ext.

How do you find golden retrievers on the first day?!
Is it a different device?
But my pet shop only cost 1,000, probably because I got it as soon as I got 4 sims. That's what I'm guessing.

Added 8th Jun 2015, ID #567496

The more businesses you already have built have (excluding workplaces) the more the next one costs, and the ore Sims you'll need.
