Vet Volunteers

If you love animals, check out the Vet Volunteers series, which follows five friends who volunteer their time at the Wild At Heart Clinic. They learn to care for everything from dogs and cats to lizards and manatees.

Learning to work together, they get into scrapes and sometimes make the wrong decisions. But there's nothing they won't do to help any animal that needs them, even if it means risking their own lives.

Meet Jules and Josh, the new twins in town! While Josh adapts quickly to Ambler, Jules accidentally makes an enemy of Maggie. Hoping a pet will help her feel better, Jules adopts the class rabbit, Chewie, but things go downhill when there are complications with Chewie's spay surgery. With Dr. Mac out on a call, it's up to Jules to work with Maggie to help the rabbit - and maybe even prove that she and Josh are worthy of becoming Vet Volunteers.
