Storyline

Animal Cops - Houston is the third Animal Planet series to follow the work of animal cruelty investigators. This particular series follows the animal cruelty investigators of the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (HSPCA). This team of 8 investigators works in a large area of Texas investigating reports of animal cruelty and, when necessary, removing animals from horrible abuse situations. Since these investigators do not have arrest or warrant seeking powers on their own, they work closely with local law enforcement, including the Harris County Precinct One Constable's Office. This office has permantly assigned Deputy Constable Christine Kendrick to assist the HSPCA investigators with any law enforcement issue that arises, including seeking warrents and arresting those charged with animal cruelty.

Very well presented... Excellent show
6 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show picks up where "Animal Precinct" leaves off. (That was the show based in NYC).

This show basically shows animals and farms in the Houston area, and the animals which must be rescued from horrible conditions and situations. Especially noteworthy are the segments which educate the audience about the weather, how dogs should not be left out in the heat; horses and the special care they require.

What is so positive about this show is that it educates the audience, and is especially helpful if you have young children, who may want a pet but don't fully realize the responsibility.

Usually the show concludes on a positive note, with an animal being adopted out to a good home. It is heartwarming to see the technicians, rescue crews, and veterinarians who are devoted to helping these animals. While some of the cruelty cases are shocking, this is an important subject that the public should be educated about. 9/10.
