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.

Good Show
21 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I support the idea of this show and all the others from other cities ( Detroit,New York, etc.). But like the one from San Francisco this one can be frustrating. The officers working at the protection of animals in Houston aren't deputized like the officers in Detroit, and New York, Those officers have arrest and seizure powers and that can allow them to take immediate action, especially when the animals life is at stake. And immediate treatment can be the difference between life and death. In Texas these officers can only observe what's going on, and report back. They can warn owners they can't speak with by posting a notice but they can't even rescue animals they can see and get to, even if that animal is dying. It can be very frustrating to watch. There are numerous episodes where officers keep going back and observe animals starving or dying of thirst and all they can do is post notices until a specified period of time goes by. So while San Francisco goes to far to the left, Texas does better at protecting individual rights but doesn't go far enough to really protect the animals. New York should be a national model for how this mission should be done. This show does have some scenes that can be difficult to watch, it's any important message and should be watched. THe bad scenes are offset by the animals they are able to save and place in new and caring homes. The hope is that people will watch and then support these agencies, and push for better humane law enforcements.
