We share this world with many different animals, many of whom share our lives with us and help us in a variety of ways. Animals at Work is about the amazing jobs animals do. This book talks about the work of dogs, from farming to search-and-rescue to sled pulling. It also describes the jobs that horses do, like military and entertainment work, and even highlights the ways in which cats lend a paw to help.
