Animal PD (Nat Geo Wild) – Premieres 14th April
A show that follows the Walton County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, as they respond to calls about neglected, abandoned or dangerous animals along with the Alaqua Animal Refuge.
In the programme it shows the sheriffs office as they are called out to assess an animal based situation involving neglectful owners, where give them an ultimatum to improve the conditions or have their animals confiscated. Along with this it also shows the Animal Refuge rescuing some abandoned animals.
After dealing with the call outs it then follows the Animal Refuge as they treat the animals saved back to health, before returning to the main case to see if the conditions set by the sheriff’s department have been fulfilled.
The programme is similar to The Guardians in the way it highlights animal mistreatment, but instead of following a volunteer organisation shows the procedures used by the police.
