Animal Saints and Sinners tells the stories of the people who save the lives of animals, as well as of the animals that are saving people.
Nearly half of Britons own a pet, but man and beast don’t always live together in harmony. This series follows animal welfare officers across the country as they strive to protect Britain’s pets. Often putting their own lives at risk to deal with dangerous animals and sometimes dangerous owners, we follow their work as they seize banned breeds and rescue wild animals in distress.
The series also introduces the extraordinary animals of Britain that are changing and saving lives – meet the Animal Saints, such as the retired racehorse who gave a troubled young girl her life back, the cat that made a selectively mute young boy come out of his shell, and the dog that came to the aid of a couple struggling to live with dementia.
