Jeff Young has 80,000 friends in Denver.

A former Midwesterner, Dee Thornell moved to Alaska more than 25 years ago to pursue her life's mission: to care for wild and domestic animals of America's largest state. After starting her veterinary business out of a pickup truck, she now owns and operates Animal House, the most sophisticated veterinary hospital in Fairbanks, Alaska. Animal Planet documents her single-minded dedication to care for creatures like bald eagles, owls, chinchillas, beavers, iguanas, ox, moose and bears. It often requires her to leave the high-tech luxuries of her clinic and travel to remote villages by plane, four-wheelers, and even a horse and carriage. Once there, she relies on bare necessities to get the job done, while also dealing with subzero temperatures and days without daylight.
In the varied forms of veterinary medicine, Dr. Susan Kelleher's practice may be one of the more unusual. Known as Dr. K, she runs South Florida's Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital, and this series follows the staff as it cares for rabbits, ferrets, foxes, fish, birds, reptiles, marsupials, and even primates. As do some other vets, Kelleher thinks domesticating wild animals like monkeys is a bad idea, but that feeling doesn't interfere with her taking care of them: "If it will fit through the door, I'll treat it," she says.

Making house calls in the far reaches of Northern Canada is a daunting task in the least, considering the houses may be separated by hundreds of miles. That challenge doesn't stop Dr. Michelle Oakley from performing her many duties as a veterinarian in one of the most rugged environments on Earth. In addition to running an animal clinic out of her home in Haines Junction, Yukon -- where she lives with husband Shane and their three daughters -- Dr. Oakley also operates a satellite clinic 150 miles away and is the on-call vet for the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, which is about 100 miles from Haines Junction. She also makes house calls, sometimes driving for long stretches through desolate wilderness to check on a patient. This series documents how Dr. Oakley juggles being a full-time vet, wife and mom, and does so with a sense of humor and devotion.
