'Animal Cops Houston' is not for the faint of heart or stomach
For some people, pets are just pets. For other people, pets are beloved members of their families, and these are the people who will have the most difficulty watching "Animal Cops Houston" (Wed. 8 pm. on Animal Planet) As it turns out, there's also a third category of people - people who care so little for other living creatures (or who, in the case of animal hoarders, care but are too plagued by mental disorders to care appropriately) that pets are simply forgotten, neglected, starved or abused. There are apparently enough people in this depressing final category for "Animal Cops" to have become a multi-city franchise, with shows based in Detroit, Miami, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Francisco and New York City.
