Have you added the click event listener function that wraps all this? I can't see anything else, but could be wrong.

try adding .val() , this is what made it work for me.

But as the guy above me already said i can't see the rest of your code.

+ var $name = $('#pet-name');
+ var $species = $('#pet-species');
+ var $notes = $('#pet-notes');

Becomes -->

+ var $name = $('#pet-name').val();
+ var $species = $('#pet-species').val();
+ var $notes = $('#pet-notes').val();
