10-Episode Animal Cops Phoenix Series Debuts on Animal Planet
Animal Planet’s internationally acclaimed Animal Cops TV series is headed to Arizona and features the lifesaving work of the Arizona Humane Society (AHS), the state’s largest non-profit animal welfare organization.
Animal Cops Phoenix on Animal Planet follows the work of the Arizona Humane Society’s animal cruelty investigators and Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™ as they rescue animals and assist local law enforcement on suspected cases of animal cruelty and abuse. This past year, AHS’ field operations team responded to more than 11,000 animal rescues and cruelty investigations.
The field operations team is backed by AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™, the largest shelter-based trauma hospital in the Southwest, as well as a behavior team comprised of animal welfare specialists and a foster hero program of more than 600 foster families and individuals, and make an animal’s journey to adoption possible. AHS’ various partners, including wildlife rescue organizations and local law enforcement, are also represented throughout the series.
Animal Cops Phoenix is set against a backdrop of stunning mountains, dramatic desert, and a climate that can be punishing one day and paradise the next. Each episode highlights a behind-the-scenes look at the work of AHS, and the professionals who, although very different, are united by their love of animals and their desire to step in and change the course of an animal’s life.
