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.

For Animal Lovers, By Animal Lovers
26 November 2007 | by InfernoJonesSee all my reviews

This show follows the work of the dedicated Houston SPCA as they rescue and try to heal and adopt out all kinds of animals in the Houston Texas area.

The depth of neglect can sometimes move you to tears, but the moments of happiness as they find homes for the animals, and you get to see them with with their new families can change the tears of sadness to joy! There's undeniably sad, sad moments... But so many, many more uplifting ones!

For the most part watching leaves you with a good feeling about those who care about our animal friends. The workers have such hard jobs in the first place, and some of the efforts they have to make to rescue the animals are super-human! I've really gotten hooked on this show of late.
