Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that many scenes of animal neglect and abuse in this show are very graphic and could upset kids. Animals featured include dogs, cats, rabbits, and horses, and many are ill and/or injured when the agents arrive. When questioned, the offenders often are unremorseful and seem unmoved by the animals' dire straits. The show exposes viewers to a little-known group of officials and reminds us how much all facets of law enforcement rely on the public for information.
Is It Any Good?
The show is eye-opening to the plight of many pets in neglectful situations and encourages the public's vigilance in preserving animals' rights. It also reminds us of the heroic jobs performed by a variety of low-profile law enforcement agents every day. But parents need to be warned that this isn't a feel-good animal show, and it isn't appropriate for young kids. Many of the stories are absolutely heart-wrenching no matter how old you are.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
