Jasmine Arroyo loves volunteering with her veterinarian mom at the Kew Gardens Animal Shelter. When Jasmine learns that the shelter will have to turn away new animals unless it can raise funds to expand, she is determined to help in any way she can.

Fortunately, Jasmine's best friends Sofia and Keiko want to help, too! The shelter is throwing a fundraiser and the girls decide to create a kids craft corner. They can draw pictures of all the shelter animals to help them find their forever homes.

But when a new girl named Madison starts volunteering at the shelter, she starts to take over the group! Can Jasmine help the shelter without losing her friends?
