The Dispatcher - John Scalzi, Zachary Quinto

This is set in a universe where people who are killed by other people have a very high chance of turning up, naked and alive, in their own home seconds later. One of the characters just mentioned dog fights, and now I'm wondering more about how this all works. Are animals affected too? If one dog kills another dog, does the dead dog turn up in whatever place it considers to be its home? Or are humans special in some way and, if so, why?
