Here’s what Zynga said about the new challenges on the PetVille forum:
There are two new challenges available now!
To earn the “Animal Rescuer” challenge, you will need to free the bird that is trapped inside of the cage in your room! If you have already freed the bird, the first time you log on to PetVille you will automatically complete this challenge!
