    The HSPCA's mission is to promote respect for all animals and free them from suffering and abuse. The Houston SPCA is a private, nonprofit charity which receives no funding from the government, United Way, or any national animal groups. The HSPCA receives over 40,000 animals each year — an average of more than 100 animals per day. The majority are lost, homeless, or simply unwanted. While many people think that the Houston SPCA shelters only dogs and cats, in reality, small mammals like guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, ferrets and rabbits, as well as horses, cows, goats, pigs and other livestock-type animals also find care and shelter at the Houston SPCA. The mission of the HSPCA is to promote respect for all animals and free them from suffering and abuse. As an open-door animal shelter, the Houston SPCA accepts all animals in need. No animal is turned away due to species, size, or health. The doors of the Houston SPCA are open to all animals: domestic, livestock, exotic and wild. Last year, the Houston SPCA received: 9,767 dogs 7,889 puppies 8,427 cats 10,497 kittens 655 rabbits, hamsters, ferrets, gerbils and other small domestic companion animals 191 livestock animals 1,643 wildlife animalsmoreless

    Survivorman follows outdoor enthusiast and survival expert Les Stroud as he is abandoned for a week in a remote location with little supplies (The supplies he is given to use depend on the scenario he is playing out. Sometimes he will play the sceneario of a stranded scuba diver on an island and other he will play a broken down car in the middle of the desert. However, he always carries his Leatherman Multi-Tool and his trusty harmonica.) While stranded in the middle of nowhere Les must document his experience by himself using 50 pounds of cameras and equipment that ranges from tripods, body strap stands, to film all the way to the cameras and the cases that hold them.
