It is always important to educate yourself on the species or pet you are planning to add to your home and family. Keeping your new member clean,fed,and healthy is very important. A pet can teach responsibility as well as love and compassion.

My kids (age 6 and 4) love to hear me read this series out loud. They love the animals and the kids but their favorite is hearing about the vet procedures and the other medical descriptions!

It seems every year I have at least one student that wants to be a veterinarian. Although I worry that some of my struggling readers will get caught up in the technical language and medical terms of this story, it's a story that shows the many ways to get involved with helping animals.

This is a cute kids book. It could've had more detail, but the book itself was probably meant to be short and to the point. Is is a quick feel good book to read.

I really liked and I think I want a cat (maybe).

When Dr. Mac's cat, Socrates, runs away, the volunteers find a lot of feral cats inhabiting an abandoned boxcar. When Sunita sets out to find the cats good homes,she must overcome many obstacles not the least of which is her mother's fear of cats. Formulaic and predictable, but still a nice quick book to while away a few hours.

Same stories in Anderson's Vet Volunteers series. All these stories are so much better than the run-of-the-mill cute animal chapter books out there. They are just as enjoyable for their readers, much more informative, and address current issues. I am using them to help animal organizations plan programs for kids in grades 3-5.

Cats love Sunita Patel, and she loves them back. Since her mother won't let he have a cat of her own, finding a feral cat colony is a dream come true. But Animal Control is going to destroy all of the cats unless Sunita does something drastic.

Again another beautiful story i read as a young reader (5th grade). I loved this one more then the 1st one because i found this one more sad. I hate seeing homeless pets. They dont deserve it. Plus i like kitty's...hehe.

This is a very good book about a few friends who try to save a group of homeless cats. If they do not there will be serious consequences. I love this book because I want to be a vet and I love cats.

I like how the writer addresses the cat issues in this country. When it comes to rescue stories, so many people just skip over the cats!
