I too like to watch these shows but I just cant anymore. The stories are just too disqusting that I cant bear to watch them. I feel so bad for the animals, they did not deserve this to happen to them. What I feel is that I would like to take these animal abusers and do the same thing to them as they did to the animals. I would feel no pity for them but yet I do for the animals.
I did, when I had cable for a year. :P Houston was my favorite.
I also liked the Miami one, I enjoyed seeing 'home.' Would always look for people/places I could recognize. Got really excited when one of the vets they showed at animal services is someone I used to work with.
