Barbie and her sister Stacie need your help in finding and rescuing all the baby animals in the Green Arbor community. By exploring various locales throughout the neighborhood, you'll come across many types of creatures that need to be cuddled, cared for, cleaned and fed at Barbie's headquarters, the Pet Rescue Center (PRC) in Green Arbor Park.
At the PRC, Barbie receives emergency calls and e-mails to help locate animals in need of rescue. The center has its own computer for keeping records of each animal and a checkup room where you feed, bandage and bathe the animals and monitor their health by giving them vitamins, treats and water. Several playrooms are available for playing games with the animals including such activities as the Puppy Treat Toss, Hamster Trail (maze), Bunny Hop, Kitten Keep Away and Turtle Race.
Barbie Pet Rescue CD-ROM features a point-and-click icon interface and offers an in-game hint system. Strategy elements include using various tools in areas such as the Green Arbor Community Playground, Hideaway Hollow Garden and the Whisper Grove Farm to rescue or capture the animals. Whether rescuing a puppy, finding a parrot, retrieving a turtle, catching a bunny or helping a kitten, Barbie and her sister are always busy. There's even a Green Arbor Park mystery to be solved!
