Synopsis

Welcome to the Pet Rescue Club! Collectible bookmarks with every book feature the real-life stories!
When Janey starts a blog where people can share cute pet photos and stories, she never imagines she’ll 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…

Animal-crazy Janey can’t have any pets of her own because of her father’s severe allergies. Her overly-indulgent parents try to make it up to her by giving her everything else she wants, including the latest model tablet computer. So Janey uses the tablet to create a blog where kids can post cute photos of their dogs and cats.

But then someone sends in a heartbreaking picture of a skinny dog. Janey isn’t sure what to do, so her friends Lolli and Adam get involved to try to help the poor creature. They also enlist hyper Zach from their class at school. He might be annoying, but his mom is a vet who works with the local animal shelter. Can the four of them save the dog – and maybe start a pet rescue club to help other animals in need?

Based on the real-life dog named Harry Truman adopted from the ASPCA. See Harry Truman's sweet photo and read about his heart-warming story on the bookmark included with every book!
