Animal Hoarding Clean Up

What is animal hoarding?

According to the Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium (HARC), animal hoarding has four main signs:


  1. Inability to provide basic standards of sanitation, food, and medical care for pets.

  2. Lack of understanding of the effect that it has on the animals and humans residing in the home.

  3. Continuing to collect animals despite structural or health concerns in the home.

  4. Refusing to admit that there is a serious issue/ignoring the concerns of others.

Why is animal hoarding a serious concern?

Animal hoarding is a concern for both the animals and the humans in the home. For animals, feces can harbor diseases that can spread from animal to animal.
Further, depending on how many are in the home, some animals may not get enough food or water.
If there is also clutter in the home, animals can get hurt, as well as trapped in places that are inaccessible to humans.
Similarly, both feces and urine can cause health problems for humans. The ammonia in urine can be especially problematic for those with respiratory problems.
Humans can catch pathogens from feces, especially if they have weakened immune systems.
