Animal Rescue features the tough daily assignments and high pressure work faced by the RSPCA’s Inspectorate and veterinary staff; men and women who work tirelessly to fight animal cruelty across Australia.
In tonight’s season finale, a kitten foraging for food inside a skip bin gets stuck in a drainage hole after a dump truck emptied the bin. Rescue Officer Tracey must work out a way to free the kitten without causing it even more distress.
Then, three sheep have been on the run since they escaped from the abattoir, but now they suffer from infection due to overgrown fleeces and will die unless the RSPCA can round them up. Despite their heavy load, the sheep are surprisingly mobile, seasoned escape artists.
And inspectors discovers two anaemic puppies whose lives are threatened by a plague of fleas and ticks.
