Week-Long Stunt And Weekly Day-Time Premieres --
WHAT: This Fall, Animal Planet's widely popular series ANIMAL COPS: HOUSTON returns to the network with 18 never-before-seen episodes. The series follows one of Texas' SPCA's Humane Law Enforcement teams as they investigate cases of animal cruelty, rescue sick and abused animals and fight for justice on their behalf.
This season's cases include the most heavily matted dog the team has ever seen; an investigation of an illegal cockfighting ring; emaciated horses battling for their lives; animal hoarding cases that have spiraled out of control; a daring rescue that puts the team face-to-face with two Bengal tigers; and much more. Each workday brings unexpected challenges and dangers for the Animal Cops team, and the stakes are raised when animal lives hang in the balance.

Week-long daytime stunt premieres Monday, September 12 thru Thursday, September 15, at 12 PM (ET/PT).
