About Animal Rescue
Animal Rescue returns, giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the tough daily assignments and high pressure work faced by Australia's RSPCA inspectors and veterinary staff; men and women who work tirelessly to fight animal cruelty across Australia.
Presented and narrated by ANTHONY FIELD, RSPCA Animal Rescue
follows Inspectors and staff of the RSPCA as they rescue, protect
and prevent cruelty to the animals of Australia.
It's a fierce and sometimes emotional journey for the inspectors as they confront cases of horror and heartbreak, during their job to rescue the lost, neglected, abandoned, and abused animals of Australia - a country with one of the greatest pet populations per capita in the world.
It's a sometimes high drama environment where frontline staff make life and death decisions everyday, occasionally risking their own safety for the life of an animal.
Over 130,000 animals each year are given shelter at one of the many branches of the RSPCA across Australia. Many are rescued by the inspectors, some surrendered, and others are brought to their clinics by one of the many Animal Ambulances that support the main branch offices.
