head start programs. Follow the extraordinary duties of these unusual animal helpers in this behind-the-scenes photographic journal.

The Lucky Litter: Wolf Pups Rescued from Wildfire - When a huge wildfire roared along the Funny River in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, firefighters rushed to the rescue and found a litter of five wolf pups in need of saving.

Follow this true story as the helpless pups move from the charred refuge to the Alaska Zoo, and finally to their forever home at the Minnesota Zoo.
