About Animal Planet
Animal Planet is a television channel dedicated to programming of animals through various series and documentaries about domestic pets and wild animals. Headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, US, the channel is owned by Discovery Inc and was launched on October 1, 1996.

It started as a channel that aired educational programs on nature through documentaries. Since 2008, it has laid emphasis on portrayal of the aggressive and predatory behavior of animals. It has now matured enough to broadcast reality programs involving personalities who work in wild or in animal-related occupations as well as those involved in investigations about various animal behavior. However, since October 2018 it has adopted a more family-centric programming and direction method.

Animal Planet has a number of sister channels such as Discovery Channel, TLC, Destination America, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel, Great American Country, Discovery Life, Investigation Discovery, Motor Trend, Science Channel etc. From this channel, you can get a lot of information about wild animals and those living in seas and rivers as well as pets. It produces and broadcasts a wide variety of shows such as River Monsters, Hanging with the Hendersons, Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet and many more.  Know the entire list of upcoming shows on the Schedule section. Also you can stream shows online by signing in with your TV provider’s details.

The quality of picture and sound broadcast by the channel is incredibly good. Though the channel is mainly broadcast in English, it is also available in various other languages such as Espanol, Dutch, French, Portuguese etc. Hosting of the shows is also appreciable.

Across the US, the channel is available through satellite dish connections, cable, IPTV as well as streaming media through platforms like PlayStation, Vue, and YouTubeTV. FuboTV brings live streaming of various programs telecast by Animal Planet. You can go through the schedule of shows on the official website. There are also resources and videos through which you can learn more about pets, wild animals and make yourself familiar with their behaviors. For more information or queries on schedule, live streaming, career, or others, reach the Animal Planet support.

  1. We are just devastated Dr Jeff is gone; we are (very)
    senior folks, in Texas, and we so looked forward to that wonderful program every Saturday night. It has been our favorite show and one of only a few that we still watch. Please bring it back. Thank you…

  2. Can someone please explain why animal planet has very little animal content on it? It’s called ANIMAL PLANET!! Not law planet, tree house planet, lock down planet… Who decided that a show about Louisiana penitentiary should be on a channel about animals? Louisiana law, North woods law, lone star law, and the other law shows. I know its game wardens, but it’s mainly showing them giving people tickets for no fishing license. I rather see animals, not drunks on boats and people fishing. I don’t care about people making fish tanks, that show is dumb and over acted. And honestly I think it’s a big slap in the face to wildlife supporting a show of a man making a living off destroying trees and possibly homes of animals.

  3. Please please take Crocodile Hunter off the air. That Erwin kid has such an over inflated ego and holds little regard for God’s creatures. He is also abusive to some of the animals he comes into contact. I find the show very disturbing. He is just like his father and we know what happened to him.

  4. Please bring back Northwoods Law, it’s a great show with much information for many to learn about conservation.The men and women who protect the wildlife of NH are very much respected by their fans. Myself and my family have seen every episode and have met many of the officers and their K-9’s. It’s more than just a show for so many and it would be a shame to have it gone forever.

  5. We (and our dogs) watch Animal Planet frequently. Needless to say we were shocked and extremely disappointed that you ran several segments of John and his weed farm. His language was offensive and the topic belongs on a program somewhere else. Our Grands love the show but we will turn to other options. So disappointed in a channel that used to be above that level of programming.

    PLEASE renew The Zoo (the Bronx) for a 6th season. It’s a fantastic show that my wife and I both love. We watch episodes over and over again. Sadly, we have not seen any episodes in the last few weeks. What gives?

  7. If you have cancelled Jackson Galaxy, Dr. Jeff, Saved by the Barn and the Vet Life, you have made a huge mistake. These are programs that the entire family can watch. Also, The Zoo and The Secret Life of the Zoo are wonderful family viewing to help humans understand these animals and let us know who are endangered. You started Our Pack Life with a teaser on Animal Planet, but now it can only be seen on your streaming, Discovery+ network. Thanks a heap. Just when you thought here’s another good program, you have to stream it to get it. You at least renewd Pitbulls and Parolees, now renew these others. These shows help teach us humans to understand the other earthly residents.

    I have heard that Animal Planet will no longer support Northwoods Law. I find it hard to believe one of your best programs would be canceled. I hope that I have been misinformed or you will revisit your decision. Thank you.

  9. Love the show TANKED!! best show you guys offer IMO. Please keep it going…Will keep watching episodes over and over!! Love it.

  10. I just saw a preview for Love Off the Grid. I truly hope this disgusting show is not on Animal Planet. Your programming should be about animals. Veterinarian shows, Saved by the Barn are all good quality programming. I want shows about animals, not people.

  11. Why are you not bringing back ‘Saved By The Barn”, “Amanda To The Rescue” “Dr. Jeff” . These shows HELP animals. The name of your channel is “ANIMAL PLANET” Bring back what the people want. I’m sorry but “Treemasters”, “Finding Bigfoot” not animal related!!

  12. Please renew Saved by the Barn. One of the few shows that had been appointment viewing and they are doing good work that needs our support.

  13. Sheila Wafer Reply

    With so many seasons of programs like the Animal Cops series, why can’t you play previous seasons instead of the same few seasons, over and over, again? It would be great to watch some of the earlier seasons, instead.

  14. I like much of your programming, especially ones involving the homesteaders, game wardens, zoos, etc. Here are a couple I absolutely CANNOT stand: Pitbulls & Parolees and Finding Bigfoot! Sorry, when I see one of those I switch channels so fast I almost break my remote!

  15. It’s been several years since you guys ended the show The Last Alaskan it would be nice to to see how they’re doing especially the older show members. Is there any way you can check in on them.

  16. Please bring back FINDING BIGFOOT!!
    I became a believer while watching this show.
    The group is AWESOME, the show is very entertaining as well. We miss it!!

  17. Becky Terrell Reply

    What has happened at your channel lineup? What happened to renewing our favorite shows? Saved by the Barn has to be renewed! They desperately want to return and they have a huge fan club!! And where is Dr. Jeff and Dr. Kay? What about the Vet Life? My Cat From Hell?

    Something alarming must be happening, if all we are seeing is weeks and weeks of reruns of Dr. Pol. We are all sick of reruns.

    Is your station in danger of collapsing? You have no money to spend on talent? It’s not like these shows cost a fortune to produce!

    BRING BACK SAVED BY THE BARN – I know their hold is almost up.

  18. I hate your lineup. Where have all the good shows gone. All we get is pit bulls and parole or tanked and not just one nooooo hours and hours. Very close to cancelling

  19. Please bring back Dr. Jeff! He is so interesting and cares so much about animals. He and his staff do such wonderful work. They go to different places and help people and their pets, whether they can pay much or not. They are so very worthwhile.

  20. Kathleen Sayles Reply

    I’m writing in support of Dr Jeff Rocky Mountain Vet to be renewed. His show is so wholesome and family oriented. He’s kind to homeless people, respectful of veterans and seems to look at the positive side of everything. In these times we need to have great entertainment like this show!

  21. BETTY COALE Reply

    What have you done with Dr Jeff? How much money do you ignorant programmers get to ruin tv? You will not give any information as to it’s status and of course the all knowing and omnipotent Discovery Channel has no contact information. They are so busy trying to sell their plus they’ve forgotten all about their loyal viewer

  22. Rachel Edwards Reply

    Hi, Animal Planet. I’ve been a viewer since you started in 1996. Love the channel SO much. A few suggestions. First, bring back Animal Cribs and Dr Jeff. Love those shows. My Cat from Hell is very good, too. Also, for new shows. Do a show that broadcasts from Columbus Zoo. I think that would be popular. And thirdly, bring back Emergency Vets. It’s an old show you’d aired when Animal Planet first started. Thanks.

  23. In Australia I’ve been watching season 2 expedition bigfoot. Then l notice it’s not on next week but it wasn’t finished. Why, why would you do that?? Instead it’s treehouse building.. please correct it so we can see the rest of the season. I’ve been watching finding Bigfoot since it began an I’ve never tired of it. Every night l watch it religiously please don’t take it off again. But definitely take off mountain monsters. Love the Irwin’s too, thankyou…

  24. Jennie Rivas Reply

    Please bring back Animal Cribs. Such a great show. Definitely a Animal lover and soon to be veterinarian technician. Love to see that people want something amazing for their Animal babies.
    Thank you

  25. Please bring back the show Monsters Inside Me. I want to hear more parasitic stories. My parents are vets and they know a lot of different parasites but I bet there are others that they don’t know about. Plus I love the educational material that the show has.

  26. Judi Dixon Reply

    I absolutely love The Zoo & Secret Life of the Zoo! I’m sure I’ve watched each show 5 times. Please start new seasons.
    The photography, music, scripts of staff members…..all are totally awesome!

  27. Alisa Dudley Reply

    I would love to know if Pit Bull and Parolees will be coming back for another season? I love to watch this show not only to save helpless pups but to watch people put their lives back together. If restores faith in humanity that there is good people out there doing good things for others! Thank you!

  28. All your great shows are gone. Love Barn Sactuary Pitbulls and Parolees Dr Jeff Amanda to the rescue. So sick of Lone star and Insane Pools which have nothing to do with animals. Please bring the other shows back!!!

    • Yes especially Pitbulls and parolees they need the little bit of money they get from filming its not as much as people think but it helps keep them going. Animal Planet go back to supporting shows that supports Animal welfare listen to your customers.

  29. Joyce Warner Reply

    Please, please, please! Renew Saved by the Barn. Such a great show!! It is so good for the animal education and rescue. It is heartfelt, funny, and makes my day when I get to watch an episode. Bring back Saved by the Barn!!

  30. Nancy Kane Reply

    Do you not listen to what viewers are saying? Saved by th Barn, should have been renewed. Also Animal Cribs. These are two great shows. Renew, please!!

    • How about going to Chiang Mai Thailand to the Elephant Nature Park.? It is the most ethical , loving place for rescued elephants, dogs, cats, and other animals that need care. People can have a one day visit or volunteer for a week to work in a group in the park with interaction, supervised, with the elephants. A spotlight on this park should happen. Please consider it. Thanks, Annette.

  31. Nancy Kane Reply

    Don’t you listen, to what people say to you? I personally know, that a lot of people contacted you. To renew Saved by the Barn. Why didn’t you renew it? It is a great show. Very informative and helpful. Also, Animal Cribs. That is another show that should continue, to have new shows. They do such fantastic work, for the people, involved. And then, you keep shows on, like River Monsters. Not a very good show. Please renew the shows, I was talking about, in the beginning. PLEASE!!!!!

  32. I watch Lone Star Law and North Woods Law. I enjoy the shows, but I think as law officers they should be required to wear seatbelts like everybody else does. They are seating a terrible example if you ask me.

  33. Mark Lough Reply

    As a person who has worn a full brim hard hat in many professions, I just felt compelled to let Lucas of Lucas Pools know that he is wearing his full brim hard hat backwards. The longer part of the rim that goes around the hard hat is supposed to be worn in the back instead of front, like Lucas wears it. This type hard hat is primarily worn in foundry applications, and the longer brim goes in back is to protect sparks and molten metal from hitting your neck, just like a fireman’s cap is longer in the back.

      Where is Pitbulls and Paroles?
      Does the Disney Corp buying the network end our most soul lifting show?
      Broadcast Pitbulls and Paroles.
      I only watch your network when Tia her family and her wonderful staff are featured.
      It’s an important show so many of us are given hope in hard times by Pitbulls and Paroles.

  34. Wanting to find out about Amanda to the Rescue. Is it coming back for a 3rd season? I hope so…I know with codiv it is hard to say but shows like this one and Pitbulls and Parolees are vital to animal rescue. Please bring back this show. Thank you Animal Planet for all you do and especially for special need animals and Pitbulls…

    • Yes I was wondering about Amanda to the rescue and if is coming back. I also agree with another viewer who states that why do they show marathons that have nothing to do with animals such as tree house masters and insane pools.

  35. Mardi Miller Reply

    I would like to know if Wild Bear Rescue is coming back to TV.
    It was a great show we learned a lot about bears and other wildlife.
    It was filmed in British Columbia.
    Why would they take off something that was so well-received I know many people around me that have watched it.
    Can you pls advise….Thk yu.

    Please renew season 2 of Saved by the Barn. I believe the show promotes compassion and empathy at a time when it’s needed the most. Dan shows us how much animals are dependant on us. I truly believe he plays an important role in awareness, and the needs of animals.

  37. Dr.Jeff is one of my favourite shows but it is not shown as much as it needs to be. Why do you have marathons of Treemasters and similar shows that quite frankly are not animal related. Dr.Jeff shows the real need for spay/neuter programs and his generosity is heart warming. Please bring him back on-air. Also Animal Cops needs to return. Thank you

    • Agree 100%. This channel should be all about promoting animal rights, rescue and wellness. You have GREAT SHOWS such as Dr Jeff…Amanda to the Rescue favorite…Pitbulls and Parolees (I am a pitbull mom) so please..more Dr Jeff!!!

    Please renew one of your great shows: Saved By The Barn. It emphasizes kindness to all animals and demonstrates that all life has value. It is emotional and very uplifting to watch. Again, please renew it. We watch every episode.
