Animal Cops: Houston
Animal Planet,

2003

| Crime, Reality, Documentary
Rating: 5/5

Animal Cops: Houston is an observational documentary series following the work of the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The HSPCA receives over 10,000 reports of cruelty or neglect every year, and its small team of investigators is dedicated to helping these victims of abuse. Our crews film with them all year round and are on call 24/7 to bring these stories to the screen, from the initial investigation and rescue, through court cases and medical rehabilitation, to, in most cases, adoption to new, loving homes. This process can take many months but because of our long term commitment to this subject we are usually able to tell the complete story, offering a unique insight into the field of animal welfare.

The human carers, run by eccentric Brit Sue Sheward, are every bit as colourful too, and the jury's still out on who rules the roost - the staff or the apes.

Caught up in the turmoil of war-torn countries, chimps frequently become orphans of the bushmeat trade, sold at markets or auctions, according to Animal Planet.
