    In San Jacinto County a woman's house is in a state of decay and threatening to collapse after becoming overrun with more than sixty cats. Many of them are sick and the Houston SPCA is called in to carry out a rescue on a huge scale. Once on the scene the team discovers a litter of newborns hidden under a bed. They're in poor shape and it's a race against time to get them back to the shelter. In Houston, Investigator Shawna Sundberg has to take immediate action when she stumbles upon a family of dogs in desperate need of medical care while in Liberty County Investigator Debbie Michielson gets more than she bargained for when she arrives at a trailer park to discover newborn puppies hidden in a disused shed.

      Omg!!! My grandmas cat was in one of those crates...😱 Her name is Carman and she is the tuxedo cat with the weird spot on he chin. I know this because we were told she was rescued from a hoarding situation in Texas. Second of all, she has that very distinctive look on her face, that is unmistakable. This would've taken place right about the time she was rescued and arrived at PetSmart. Wow! What a coincidence!!!

    2. Angela Magic Salveson

      The little poodles & puppies, they're backyard breeders, she said the puppies have homes, yeah cuz she sells em. It's just about the money for them. They'll get more dogs I bet.

    3. m e

      Get the cats out.then big can of gasoline and a match!

    4. JustSayin

      Some of those vet techs are pretty rough with the cats. Grabbing them by the neck and having them hang there while they looked at them. That was not necessary as they are always ill. What happened to the rest of the dogs that were left behind or abandoned? You said you didn't have the room to get them all. I sure hope someone went back and got the rest of them instead of letting them starve to death.

      1. Elaine Malmsten

        Actually those vet techs handled the cats correctly. Scruffing is a common, and one of the safest, ways to handle and restrain an animal -- I've used it on everything from cats to possums. It can make some cat more anxious, yes, but I'm sure the priority was efficiency and safety of the techs

    5. Sephia Mendoza Aguilar

      It's crazy they aren't willing to care for the dogs and here I am making a loft bed and area for my doggo idk man don't have a dog if you are not willing to raise it like a child my dogs my #1 priority no matter what a vet check-up once every 2 months park ever 2 days and a grooming every 2 weeks

    6. Cal The Nobody

      Why do some people not understand that its an animal's literal INSTINCT to breed every year. You can't stop instinct but you can prevent it. GET YOUR ANIMALS TO THE VET. JUST BECAUSE THEY ARENT SICK DOESNT MEAN THEY DONT NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF. IF YOU LOVE ANIMALS DONT HORDE, THATS NOT LOVING.

    7. Raymx slapped y'all

      God,this is an American show; he couldn't at least pronounce vitamins American accent

    8. MrsFreckletone

      Max is a lovely Turkish Van

      1. Douglas Griffiths

        Plus, Vans are a longhaired breed.

      2. Douglas Griffiths

        Max is definitely not a Turkish Van. He is a Red Point American Shorthair. Turkish Vans do not have a mask, or point color on their legs. They are white with color on their tails, and on their heads around their ears. They can have blue eyes, but copper eyes are more common. We show Siamese, and see Vans at shows now and then.

    9. oddny sverris

      Nonono you sjut lett tem si tha poops 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

    10. •Miss• Wanna•Die•

      Okay is nobody gonna talk about what the women who adopted Pedro/max was drinking was that wine or vodka??

      1. •Miss• Wanna•Die•

        Douglas Griffiths ok thanks

      2. Douglas Griffiths

        Looked like white wine.

    11. Joleen Phillips

      If she loved her puppies so much, she should have taken care of them. Shedding crocodile tears now doesn't make those dogs better. The SPCA did that.

      1. Douglas Griffiths

        The dogs should have been fixed in the first place, and never had those puppies. Parents are to blame on this one.

    12. Tayia Beck

      If they didn't rescue those poodle mixes I'm sure that lady would have ended up being a hoarder as well. I'm sure she was trying to start out as a breeder and that doesn't usually end well.

    13. cindy127

      Adopted 2. One named Lovey the dog, and Phoenix the cat.

    14. cindy127

      Max is beautiful! Plus gets lots of love!

    15. Sunny Flower

      P. A. T. H. E. T. I. C. Why would you let it get this bad those poor cats 🐈

    16. Eliana Patt

      the baby's a merle!!!!!

      1. Eliana Patt

        and Pedro/Max is a flame point!

    17. The Talented Leo

      They should still pay SOMETHING for their negligence! All of them!

    18. Mizz Bella Kitty

      I'd rather a sick animal be humanely put down in a clean shelter than suffer and die painfully in filthy conditions

    19. Mizz Bella Kitty

      The couple with the poodle mixes are horrible and I hope they're banned from having any animals ever. And I hope their daughter learns from this and doesn't do what her parents did. I hope she can become better than her parents and maybe even become an animal rescuer or veterinarian.

    20. cepps228

      T-T

    21. FatprincessNfatrolls

      Imagine crying over dogs that u didn’t even take care of, lol girl give me a break

    22. iiUnix

      I love cats and seeing 50+ cats struggling makes me think, why have a cat if your not gonna look after it?

    23. Jenny V

      Those parents should be charged for child abuse too. How awful what they did to those dogs and to their daughter. This made me cry.

    24. Drama Ostrich

      it's so sad to see animals just getting abandoned or neglected like this.. we have five cat's who are all are really cared for and came from bad environments, im happy to see the animals getting the treatment and care that they deserve

    25. patti brown

      God bless all you wonderful souls taking care and giving a second chance to all these precious animals!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

    26. Meissel Herrera

      Those tears are so not getting to me. She doesn't deserve those pops

      1. Douglas Griffiths

        Maybe they'll learn how to take proper care of a pet. Hard lesson to learn.

    27. AFNacapella

      that girl should be offered to volunteer in the animal shelter, perhaps not the one her dogs are in but work with animals and make the whole thing a learning experience. she'll be trained to handle animals, have the emotional feedback, prepare herself for taking care of an animal later in life and see that her parents aren't the only one who don't know how to treat a pet.

    28. Elizabeth Ciaccio

      I love watching these, and love what they do, but it saddens me how many they put to sleep. Another of my favorite episodes is Vet Ranch. They have animals that are way worse, and yet save them. They rarely put them to sleep.

    29. JUNGKOOK IS MINE!!!!!!!!

      16:43 even with a bad eye, that kitty looks so sad but soooo cute! I want!

    30. San Andreas Fault

      I’m angry at the daughter of the poodles owners... she cried for the dogs, but didn’t cared about feeding, bathing or at least untangling the fur mats... sure she cared and was attached

    31. madison411

      If i worked there, i would cry everyday :(

      1. Douglas Griffiths

        Then you wouldn't have that job very long. A person needs a strong will to have a job like that. Most of these places have a high turnover rate of employees because the job does get to them sooner or later.

    32. I'm a rat

      Maverick is a baby boy I love him

    33. Madeline Smith

      God bless every single one of these people

    34. Notdisney Channel

      Pedro was a perfect name for him😭

    35. Tov Dav

      think it could have been really cool f the daughter could have volunteered with spca, bcuz she would have been able to be around animals, and learn how to properly care for them

    36. Xandra Ann

      I admire these animal officers. I would end up trying to fight the first animal abuser I came across.

    37. Shaun Whalen

      Why can't CP A be as good? What if we supported CPA like animal cops?

    38. TheGamingSaber 9

      This is y u spay and nuter ur animals

    39. Breanna

      31:30 did they just leave that one dog?

    40. BriellaBriella Rich

      She must’ve had a pretty bad relationship with her parents in order to not see them for 5 years... I couldn’t go ONE year without seeing my parents .

    41. Angelbabe

      That cat hoarder house was disgusting, absolutely no excuse what so ever for the cruelty of keeping cats in those conditions.

    42. Andrew Evans

      shoulda called charlie kelly. he knows about the interdimensional properties of cats.

    43. luna

      that's not a agreement, that's pure blackmail, I understand, but don't call it an agreement

      1. Sweetly

        How is it blackmail? They literally just say "if you agree to hand over the dogs without legal intervention you don't have to pay for treatment".

    44. Catcubus

      Does anyone know what sort of dog breed Bella is? She looks like a chihuahua mix of sorts.

    45. JanineBean

      I feel like so many more of those animals could have been saved with simple veterinary care. I wish they pushed harder on the abusive and neglectful owners to pay expenses so they could afford to save more. The episode where those two beautiful malamutes died, the momma and the baby, and the guy straight up LIED about the dogs’ vet papers and gave them the papers for the two puppies he had already sold, AND he had lied about how long they had been dead...and he just left them lying there dead in the sun while he went to work. Ou I want that guy to pay for his vet bills for the dad dog. He said he can’t afford it, but he just sold two malamute puppies the day before so I’m pretty sure he could afford it? It seems like they always waive fees in exchange for them giving up rights to the animal...but usually it seems pretty clear to me they had a case to take away the owner’s rights anyway. Maybe they’re trying to avoid more court time expenses? Idk. But in some cases it’s pretty clear they could pay it if they wanted to.

    46. Paulette Rinck

      I worked for an animal shelter in California. It causes me such heartbreak to watching this show. I suffered the equivalent of a nervous breakdown dealing with the stress of working there. People need to understand how hard these situations can be not only on the animals but on the people involved as well. I wish I could work in a shelter situation again but that is not a option. It just causes too much pain and mental anguish for me. I love animals and am working to get well. I’m currently loved by a Basenji dog named Abby.

      1. Douglas Griffiths

        Most employees of shelters do get out of these jobs after only a year or so. It's too much heartbreak to handle day after day.

    47. Olivia Cuatt

      everyday they save life's so they can have forever.

    48. Ivan C

      I still dont get why some individuals get animals and completely disregard it. Buy a chiapet instead or sea monkeys

    49. CeltycSparrow

      I can understand the woman with the cats has a big heart....but her daughter is right.....if you are going to keep animals, you have a duty to take care of them. The daughter absolutely did the right thing calling for help. And what I always wonder about people I see on this show who hoard all these animals is, yes, the ANIMALS are getting a second chance at a new life but what happens to the people? That house is RUINED. And if its NOT condemned, it will probably take thousands of dollars to restore that house to where it can be lived in safely.

    50. Put Gerard back

      The fact of how sad the girl was because she couldn't have her dogs made me so mad a her mother for not taking better care of them

    51. LotusGirl

      Sometimes I have to rewind the last 10 seconds when I'm watching these videos to make sure I heard right when they say "We removed 63 animals from the premises..." like you removed HOW MANY??????

    52. Izipunn

      People who think that keeping an animal inside a cage it's entire life is the best for them have an IQ of 40

    53. V1per V1R0S

      My favorite part is seeing the abandoned animals have a brand new home and a loving family.

    54. Lioness006

      Out of all the animals "rescued," they sure weren't able to save very many. All of those cats and they saved a few kittens, their mom, and ONE adult cat? Out of all the dogs, they were only able to save one puppy, his mom, and ONE adult dog? This is why rescues need more funding and more space. And why people who mistreat animals need swifter, harsher punishments!

    55. Pickingwilddaisies

      16:31 is he the big guy in the middle of the older intros?!? He lost so much weight! I recognize his face. His neck is so skinny now 😱

    56. Pickingwilddaisies

      3:27 if she had such a “big heart” why didn’t you go and visit your own mother for 5 years???? Who doesn’t go to their mother house for 5 years if there isn’t some serious problems in the family??

    57. TJ Wilson

      Found this show today, but I am shocked at how many animals are mistreated, not taken care of, it's horrendous! Thank God for these dedicated people rescuing them! Poor volunteers need respirators! And giving them 2-5 days to correct the problems is a waste of time!

    58. lex -

      Omg the lady with Max (Bruno)... such a sweet soul 💕

    59. Xan DK

      i agree the dogs needed to be removed but "anti-social" behavior is not grounds for neglect , My cat is Extremely "anti-social" to anyone whom is not me and will run away from them yet he is not neglected I spend at least an hour playing with him each day and he naps on top of me for several hours

    60. Hyoriki

      I hate it when people want to show a little sympathy to someone who did something horrible just because they see tears🙄😒

    61. Angela

      Aww so cute

    62. Pharexsys Mage

      im calling bull sugar on this Spca. The poodles did need care, but they let another woman (look up Matilda in these series)who had dogs locked up for over 10 years. poo bloody 18 inchs thick on the house floor. This bloody lot let her keep two out of 60 dogs and yet this family who yeah could have done better, could have been allowed to keep at least one but NO cut them off done........Spca although can be good they are a joke.

    63. cher smith

      all those kittys, most of them are going to be euthanized... and that daughter did too know she's a damn liar

    64. Melanie Jetter

      If I would be working as one of them I would break down every time I would see a sick animal or one in trouble. It’s horrible!

    65. Lilly Lind

      we need to celabrate these people more

    66. Pine tree

      The only job where they WANT to go out of business 😂

    68. Riane McDoggo

      bella is a beautiful dog!!! i love her!!

    69. truMalma

      18:49 even if 0 cats were adoptable, their efforts wouldn't have been in vain. Stopping their suffering is priceless.

    70. Mia Nitsche

      With them always saying "they are all in horrible conditions, but this one gives hope" and then only showing this one animal being adopted kind of gives me the impression that they euthanized all of the other cats and dogs. Anyone else?
