Animal Cops: Detroit is a one-hour American reality television series that premiered in 2002 on Animal Planet. It takes place in Detroit, Michigan, home of the Michigan Humane Society (MHS), and focuses on the exploits of five animal cruelty field agents and the staff physicians and animal evaluators at the MHS. The series is one of Animal Planet's top-rated shows; it is part of an "umbrella rotation" of shows known collectively as "Animal Planet Heroes".

The series premiered in 2002 and followed the cases investigated by a quartet of MHS cruelty investigators, Mark Ramos and Debby MacDonald (on the city's west side) and Shawn Hairston and Keven Jones (on the city's east side). Jones left the MHS during the show's first season and was replaced by former rescue driver Mike Dowe Jr., who became Hairston's partner. Another rescue driver, David McLeod, joined the team in 2004 as an investigator.

Actor John Lurie narrated most of the early episodes. He has since been replaced by voice actor Rodd Houston beginning in 2004.

First-run production ended in 2006, though the show continues to be shown in reruns as part of the Animal Planet Heroes umbrella.


The show won "Outstanding Reality Program" at the 2003 Genesis Awards, an award show sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States that highlights media contributions to animal rights causes throughout the world. Investigator Shawn Hairston, accepting the award for his fellow investigators, told the audience that "We are warriors in this war against animal cruelty."
