What Makes a Hoarder?

by Laura Ellis on June 8, 2010

For most of us, what we know about hoarders comes from reality television and the news. We’re morbidly fascinated by stories of people “buried alive” in their homes or who are found to be living with 100 cats. But for hoarders and their families, there’s nothing entertaining about it. Hoarders come from all walks of life and it often starts gradually and then eventually spirals out of control. Join us on Wednesday when we learn more about hoarders and how to help someone suffering from the condition.

On thing I do not understand about people who hoard animals and as yet we do not know the statistics it appears that what has been written about animal hoarding has been written by those involved in the vegan animal rights social movement. I feel they have used the term to forward their agenda against anyone who owns multiple animals. It seems that there is little valid research. It appears that Tufts is the leading research but there has been quite of money from the animal rights organization Humane Society of the United states that has funded “research” grants. What is needed is more research before a label is attached or what causes it or how it is treated and not used as a lable to draw attention to the animal rights movement.
