Kids learn about animal welfare around the world, including cruelty prevention, emergency rescue, wildlife rehabilitation, animal advocacy, habitat preservation, and shelter volunteering. They explore ways to address the needs of animals—both domestic and wild, read what others (including young people) have done and are doing to help, find out what their community needs, and develop a service project. Includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a difference in the world. This hands-on student workbook was created in collaboration with the ASPCA and can be used as a stand-alone or in conjunction with The Complete Guide to Service Learning. Part of an ongoing series that includes A Kids’ Guide to Hunger & Homelessness and A Kids’ Guide to Helping Others Read & Succeed.

"Wonderful guide to compassion and responsible treatment of creatures that can't speak for themselves. Highly recommended." —Midwest Book Review, The Pets/Wildlife Shelf
“An outstanding service-learning book . . . extremely timely as more and more kids and youth are spending less time with other animals and out in nature and more time in front of computer screens. This book ‘is designed to open minds, create possibilities, and encourage the lasting benefits that occur when making a contribution of one’s personal talents and skills,’ and it does this and more.”—Children, Youth and Environments Journal
