Understanding Animal Hoarding

Animal hoarding has multiple consequences, not only for the hoarder and his family but also to the animals. Experts claim that the root of the behavior continues to be of mystery although it is often associated with an awry childhood development.

Some differences are also set between people who hoard objects and those who hoard animals:

Christiana Bratiotis, an assistant professor at the University of Nebraska Omaha‚Äôs Grace Abbott School of Social Work and expert on the psychology of hoarding, says “The person who hoards objects may have an obsessive thought that as soon as they get rid of a certain object, something terrible will happen. So they retain the object to eliminate that distress and the obsessive thoughts can then go away. But we think people are motivated to hoard animals for different reasons.”

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!
