Welcome to the Pet Rescue Club! The series begins when Janey starts a blog where people can share cute pet photos and stories. She never imagined she’d receive a heartbreaking photo of a skinny, abandoned dog. She calls on her friends Lolli, Zach, and Adam to help–and that’s just the start! When these animal-loving fourth graders discover how many animals need help in their suburban hometown, they can’t just sit by and do nothing… In volume 6, the Pet Rescue Club is planning a fundraising event at the Third Street Shelter when they get an interesting call: a neighboring town needs help with the happiest dog around, Champion. The specialty firm helping Champion get his prosthetic legs is too far away for the shelter to manage. With fittings, trainings, and physical therapy, they just can’t make it work. But, of course, the Pet Rescue Club volunteers to help in anyway they can. Read along to find out how these fourth graders help out…and if Champion finds his forever home! Read a book and help save a life: 4%-5% of the purchase price of every The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals¨ (ASPCA¨) book goes directly to the ASPCA so they can continue their mission of helping the helpless, with a minimum donation of $25,000 through December 31, 2017.
