Thank you so much for bring this issue to our attention.
I'm a researcher for the series Confessions: Animal Hoarding, currently airing on Animal Planet that tells the stories of people overwhelmed by the number of pets they own. The problem is on the rise and affect communities across America.
If you are concerned about the health of animals in someone's care and suspect they may be hoarding them, we might be able to help.
Most animal hoarders donít see themselves as hoarders, and sometimes donít intentionally collect animals. Their relationship with their animals has threatened their relationships with friends and family.
Most of these situations arenít dealt with until they become criminal. This results in animals being euthanized by over-stressed shelters, and doesnít address the underlying psychological issues - meaning nearly 100% of people end up in the same situation again.
We are dedicated to finding comprehensive long-term solutions and believe therapy to be key to this. We can bring in experts to help people and their pets.
