  • Become the Shepherd

If the animals accept your animal treat you’ve got a limited time to get them to your village.

It’s your responsibility to make their journey peaceful, avoiding any unpleasant encounters with wild animals.

Lure them into a vehicle for a quick journey, use a Fishing Rod to pull them across tight spots, or cross barriers by building bridges! If the animal gets hurt on the journey, make sure to heal them by giving them another Animal Treat. 

  • Assign them an Animal Home

Once you get them to your village assign them their respective animal house individually. Now it’s your job to ensure they live happily in your farm.
