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.
