Hay Day Pets

Hay Day Pets

Pets were added to Hay Day in an update, but the game has a unique approach towards them – you have to save up ‘Pet Vouchers’ before you are able to get one. Pets include Cats and Dogs.

You can get pets by purchasing them. Dogs can be bought after Level 20, while Cats start at Level 21. You require Pet Vouchers as mentioned above, which are given out when you complete boat and special truck deliveries. You can read more on how to get Pet Vouchers, below.


Before you are able to get a dog or cat, you first have to purchase a Dog House, or a Cat House. Once you have them, they will walk freely around your farm. They do require some intervention, however, and you will need to be willing to feed them once they get hungry. To do this, you simply tap on the house that you built for them and fill the bowl either with bacon or milk, for the dog or the cat respectively. You can fill the bowls whenever you like – the pets will only eat once they are actually hungry.

TIP: Having eaten, your pets will want to sleep. To get your reward for feeding them, tap them to wake them up. If you have a lot of pets, use the whistle to wake them all up together and get the reward all at once.

You are limited to 2 Dog Houses and 2 Cat Houses on your farm. Each pet house can have a maximum of three pets. This means, if you so desired, you could support an impressive 12 pets (with 6 dogs and 6 cats) on your farm.

Use the pet whistle to control your pets. Blowing it will wake them up, allowing you to collect your reward, as well as to call them back to their houses if they’ve been wandering.

There are four different types of Pet Voucher. These are Green, Blue, Purple and Gold.

How to Earn Pet Vouchers:

They are frustratingly hard to come by, at least when you are desperate to get yourself a pet dog or cat and don’t want to wait around for them! Luckily, with a bit of digging, you can get the vouchers you need for free.

The main ways to get vouchers are by completing boat deliveries and special truck deliveries. You are also able to find them in tool boxes and win them by playing the Wheel of Fortune. Of course, you can also purchase pet vouchers using Diamonds. When taking on a boat order, you are only shown the color of the voucher once it has been completed.

TIP: By far the best way to get Pet Vouchers is to fill the boat orders. Once you progress to unlock the mine, you are given special metal orders that can give vouchers too.

Introduction to animals

Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of Hay Day is the animals available. They really give the game a lease-of-life compared to just having boring old seeds and crops. There are a large variety of animals that you can buy to help out on the farm, producing resources which you can then process, or sell on straightaway.
It is important to learn which animals produce what resources, so that you can understand those that are best to purchase for your farm. Animals are a big investment, so it’s a decision that you shouldn’t take lightly and requires careful consideration.

While crops do not require any care in Hay Day, unlike in real life to make sure they are well-watered, animals are more difficult to keep happy. You have to feed them before they will start to produce their relevant resource. Like crops, you also have to wait a while before you can collect the resources.


The Basics

During the tutorial, you are introduced to the animal pens. There is a variety of animal pens available to you, each one supporting a particular type of animal. For example, the Chicken Coop, fairly obviously, will only hold Chickens. You shouldn’t try to put a horse in there! You can find the animal pens in the top-tab of the store, while the animals themselves are in the tab below, marked with the picture of the chicken. You unlock more animals and pens as you rank up and advance through the levels.

To purchase an animal, find it in the Store and drag it to the correct pen. You will then have to feed it. To do this, tap the animal (a Chicken for example) and and drag the food (a bag of Feed in the case of Chickens) to feed them. You will lose a certain amount of the food resource depending on the number of animals you drag it over.



Soon you’ll have a thriving community of animals on your farm

You will then have to wait for your animal to produce something tangible that you can sell. As with most things in Hay Day, you are able to speed this process up. Simply click on the animal and then the speed up button to do this. You will notice to the right of the time-remaining indicator how many diamons are required to speed it up. The speed up button is represented by a lightning bolt. You will have to do this for every animal you want to speed-up, there is no bulk option here.

To collect produce from an animal pen, click on the animal, then drag the item to collect with over them. For Chickens, this would be a basket.

List of Animals

Below you will find a list of the animals currently available in Hay Day. Note that since Pets were added in a later update to the game, these have been given their own section of the guide.

Feeding your Animals

To Feed your animals you need to build a Feed Mill. This will provide you with the resources required to keep them from getting hungry. You can find the Feed Mill in the Shop, under the second tab down, which houses the production buildings. The Feed Mill works in much the same way as any other Production Building – simply tap it, then drag the bag of feed into the central bucket to begin production.

You unlock the second Feed Mill at Level 12, at the same time as the second Chicken Coop. You should avoid the temptation to build the second Coop first because it is cheaper. You should make sure you have the facilities to feed your animals before buying them.

Purchasing the Feed Mill first will mean you are able to build up a stockpile or Feed, then get the Chickens and keep them well fed for a long time to come.
