Newly formed in 2005 and now independent from the Miami Dade Police Department, investigators and animal control officers of the Animal Services Department (ASD) cover over 2,000 square miles from South Beach Miami to the Everglades. ANIMAL COPS MIAMI follows the humane law investigators of the ASD in their battle against animal cruelty as they set out to rescue animals from their predicament before it is too late. 

The county of Miami Dade, Florida, covers more than 2,000 square miles, ranging from South Beach to the Everglades. It is home to millions of creatures - from alligators to Chihuahuas - but there is only one team dedicated to animal emergencies: the men and women of ANIMAL COPS MIAMI. For the ANIMAL COPS MIAMI team at the ASD, their city is literally an urban jungle. Based minutes from downtown Miami and on call 24 hours a day, the team responds to a broad range of animal situations, from the most dangerous, serious cases to more lighthearted ones.

Join the ANIMAL COPS MIAMI team as they deal with nearly 2,500 calls a month including a loose alligator which causes a 9-mile backup on the freeway, a python found in a public restroom and a cult that sacrifices animals. Witness the ANIMAL COPS MIAMI team in action as they take on multiple forms of animal abuse and free creatures from further persecution.
