I don't think you can get them back. Its sad, I know. You have to wait awhile until you can adopt another pet.

I'm not sure how to get your pet back, they just took my little family of dogs and it said I was neglecting them but I don't think I was, I was actually playing with one at the time. I miss my dogs :(

When your dog cat or horse is taken away you have to make friends with the social worker (weird huh but just hang with me.) Once you have made friends with the social worker, go to his or her house and start being mean to them do stuff like insult, scare, fight and imply their mother is a llama they are the best ones. Once you are arch enemies with the social worker go to the phone and adopt the pets back you have to wait about 2 sim days before you can adopt your pets back. It works trust me I've done it every time they took my pets.

Most of these are lies. Btw. But after a couple of days you can readopt them by clicking adopt a pet from shelter, but check every few hours because chances are they will get adopt by another person /. yes sad...

Guest said: 28th Feb 2016 | REPORT
befriend the person who owns them and have penny move in and then hate the owner and you can keep the pet

You can also quit without saving and go back to the last saved time which was hopefully still with your pets.

If you haven't saved your game just go onto main menu and then your pets should be there

You most certainly can get them back. Wait awhile for the option to appear on your computer to "Adopt a pet from a shelter." Your pet should be there. If not; it's just left your house and hasn't made it to shelter yet or someone adopted them already. All hope isn't lost if they have. Check your neighborhood tags in map view. Someone has them. Steal them or add to family...

If you evict your family with their house, you can bulldoze the old lot and move them back in. This will get rid of the neglect moodlet that keeps you from adopting pets. When I did this I was able to immediately readopt my pets. I even had the old relationship status with them. I lost nothing but my pending wishes. Well worth it.
