There the lonely girl is befriended by Dr. Banting and his assistant, Mr. Best, who are in search of a cure for diabetes. But much to Ruth's dismay, the research they are doing involves testing on animals. Often Ruth can't help hearing the dogs barking and crying, and it upsets her terribly. She's not the only one concerned about the dogs: a group of animal rights protestors becomes a regular fixture outside the institute. ---When the group leader tries to enlist her support, Ruth is torn between her sympathy for animals and her loyalty to Dr. Banting and Mr. Best."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
