Summary
The squirrels at Mt. Mercy College are getting too friendly--they're frightening the students, making the nuns jumpy . . . and they're super messy. It's time to call the Animal Rescue Team! 

Meanwhile, Keisha's got a problem of her own. The Grand River Steppers jump rope team has a chance to win first place in their school district this year, but Keisha's so nervous, she keeps messing up! When she and Daddy go to the Veteran's Facility to check out their squirrel situation, Keisha meets Sergeant Pinkham, who's learning how to use his new prosthetic leg. Could Sarge be just the person to help Keisha stay calm, do well, and have fun at the competition?

Perfect for independent readers, the Animal Rescue Team books offer adventurous and heartwarming stories with lots of laughs--and plenty of critters.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Wildlife concerns play a secondary role in this entry in the Animal Rescue Team series that focuses on 10-year-old Keisha's struggles to keep up with the Grand River Steppers jump-rope team. Meanwhile, Keisha's family's animal-rescue organization contends with an overload of squirrels on a local college campus and receives help from a young veteran, who lost his leg. Stauffacher's story emphasizes responsible behavior when interacting with animals in an urban setting, but the messages are never strident. Fans of the series will be glad to follow the familiar characters through another adventure, although this book stands alone easily, too.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2010 Booklist"
