When animal hoarders are confronted with their condition, one will discover that they love their pets unconditionally, believing they are doing their best to love, care, and provide for their pets.
Mount Laurel, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
A report published on May 27, 2013 by Michael Moser of the Crossville Chronicle explains that a Tennessee couple living in an inhabitable storage facility had endangered themselves and the lives of over thirty dogs. The couple was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. While the charges were dropped after almost a year, the defendants gave up their right to legally acquire and own any dogs in the future.
Along with eviction, arrests, fines, and being separated from their precious pets, it was discovered that two of the dogs needed immediate medical treatment, according to the report.
It can be argued that people who hoard animals are doing terrible things. However, when animal hoarders are confronted with their condition, hoarding specialists have discovered that animal hoarders love their pets unconditionally, believing they are doing their best to love, care, and provide for their pets.
Hoarding is an extremely difficult condition to understand. Until the American Psychiatric Association identified hoarding as its own mental health category with the publication of their DSM-V in May 2013, guidelines for proper treatment of hoarders continuously fell into obscurity. Millions of people have been forced to suffer from the hoarding condition alone behind mounds of unusable clutter.
For animal hoarders, the situation is far different. In typical cases, only the hoarder and their immediately family are in danger of encountering life-threatening health risks from living in deplorable conditions. On the other hand, animal hoarders are also putting their beloved pets at risk as well.
