Coral Island – Everything You Need To Know About Pets

Coral Island is one of the best farming and life sim games out now. If you’re a fan of the genre and enjoy games like Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon, then you’re not going to want to miss out on this game. Coral Island has all the wonderful aspects of a peaceful charming life. Spend your day looking after your crops on a gorgeous tropical island, go fishing, explore the mines and make friends. What else could someone want in life? Well, how about an adorable pet friend that you can hang out with!

The wonderful island is home to plenty of pets for you to choose and adopt. Including the traditional cats, dogs and rabbits to the more unusual, such as a fox, lizard and even a dragon! In this guide, we’ll go through all the basics of owning a pet on Coral Island. Where and how to adopt a pet, what pets are available right now and how to get them, as well as what you’ll need to look after them.


How To Adopt A Pet

You won’t be able to adopt a pet straightaway on Coral Island, instead, you’ll need to contribute to the town rank and raise it from Rank F to Rank E in order to begin. Raise your Town Rank by participating in town activities, running errands, contributing to the museum or cleaning up the ocean. You should be able to do this in your first year pretty easily.

Once your town is at Rank E head on over to the Community Centre where the pet adoption centre is. Interact with the PC at the front to first purchase either a Pet Bed or a Pet House. The bed will let your pet sleep inside, while the house will have them living outside. Once you have a suitable place for them to stay on your farm you can then proceed to choose what pet to adopt!

  • Indoor Pet Bed – 500g
  • Pet House – 3,000g

One thing to note and it’s something that I’m sad to report, you can only adopt one pet at a time. So you won’t be able to have more than one little companion running around.


All The Pets On Coral Island

There are a total of 20 different animals that you can adopt from the animal shelter on Coral Island. And they range from dogs, cats, foxes, lizards and bunnies. There’s even a mythical dragon pet which we’ll get into later.

Upon adopting your chosen pet you’ll be able to change their name.

Mythical Pets

Mythical pets are a special variety of pet on Coral Island that can be earned late in the game. They include creatures of the mythic variety and currently the only one out so far in version 1.0 is a dragon. Owning a mythical pet won’t count towards your pet quota.

Currently, the only way to get the dragon mythical pet is to have backed Coral Island on Kickstarter with the Deluxe Farmer Pack and above. Or you could have additionally bought a Mythical Pet as an add-on from their Kickstarter page.

There’s been a tease about the introduction of more Mythical Pets to Coral Island. And we expect more news in their version 1.1 update that will be announced in February 2024.
