Overview

The Vet Volunteers are a group of ordinary kids with a special job—helping animals at a veterinary clinic! From saving puppies in Pennsylvania to helping manatees in Florida, the Vet Volunteers work with all kinds of animals and have great times with their best friends.

Teacher’s Pet
Maggie's still getting used to middle school. One of her teachers is too. Mr. Carlson, her new science teacher, is blind, and is working with a guide dog for the first time. Scout is a love of a German shepherd and really wants to do his job, but Maggie can tell that Mr. Carlson's still having a hard time. Maybe she can help....

Trapped
Someone's been setting animal traps in the nature preserve behind Brenna's house. She and her older brother, Sage, are furious—not only is that illegal, it's hurting and killing defenseless animals where they should be safe. They both want to do something, but Brenna's worried that Sage may have some really extreme plans in mind. Can she rein him in?

Fear of Falling
David is determined to learn to jump on horseback if it kills him. And sometimes he’s afraid it might, like when Comet balks and won’t go over the crossbar. Now that David’s father is back in town, he’s promised to teach David how to jump like a champion. But David can’t let him know how scared he is. Because there’s one thing that scares David more than falling off a horse, and that’s disappointing his father. Can he overcome his fear, or even talk about it?
