Animal Hoarding

Animal HoardingWhile hoarding is often defined as accumulation of inanimate objects, it can extend to the gathering of animals as pets as well. While there’s nothing wrong with having pets to care for, hoarders have way too many animals bu are unable to care for them due to the overwhelming number of them living under their roof. Most of the time, animal hoarders deny that they are not able to provide the animals with the love and care that they need and even continue to increase their number of pets.

According to Dr. Frost, a psychiatric doctor, a study determined that women were more likely to be hoarding cats and men hoarding dogs. Two-thirds interviewed were women, and nearly seventy percent were unmarried. These individuals often hoarded inanimate objects as well, creating even worse conditions for the pets in their home. Suspected animal hoarders were often anti-social, and valued possessions over personal relationships in their lives.
If you suspect someone guilty of being an animal hoarder, you must contact your local humane society or health department.  One should not feel guilty for reporting such a condition, as often times living in an animal hoarding situation is as harmful to the human as it is the pets he or she is keeping.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
