The Dog Rescuers

Channel 5's The Dog Rescuers follows our inspectors as they investigate reports of abuse and neglect towards dogs across England and Wales.

In the fourth series, our tireless and dedicated inspectors - some familiar faces and some new - continued their crusade against cruelty. There were dramatic rescues, miraculous recoveries and heart-warming stories of happy adoptions.

The show also presented pups who perform acts of heroism to help humankind - showing precisely why they are known as man’s best friend.
