Dog Patrol focuses on the work of the Animal Control Officers based in South Auckland, which has the largest dog population in New Zealand. Follow this dedicated team of animal-lovers as they go about their incredibly varied day-to-day work. Every callout is different and no one ever quite knows what they will find when they turn up. The series covers drug raids, dog attacks, roaming and unregistered mutts, lost pets reunited with their owners, abandoned strays successfully put up for adoption, and more! Dog Patrol faithfully follows all aspects of the job about which the Animal Control Officers are so passionate.
