In this episode of animal rescue series Animal House, SPCA Inspector Sue Baudet is drawn into a complicated and heated dispute between two South Auckland neighbours involving allegations of dog abuse. Inspector John Heremaia is called out to a car wrecker's yard, where a last minute discovery in a car lined up for the compressor inspires the SPCA to name a cat 'Lucky'. Back at Mangere Animal Village, vet Jodi Salinsky operates on a lovable Shar Pei puppy, which is battling a serious bone infection from a botched tail docking. Often rating among Aotearoa's ten most watched shows, Animal House lasted six seasons.
