Never mind...I didn't see JR's post until after I posted. I went to the sight. I am glad that they know who is responsible. People who harm animals are more likely to harm people. It makes snse. If you have not problems hurting an animal, it makes sense that you also don't have problems harming people--especially children.

In fairness, animal hoarders have no intention of harming their animals. They actually think they are protecting them, so it's not at all fair of you to link hoarding animals to child abuse. They are two vastly different realities.

There hasn't been much of an update. I assume they are waiting to hear what happens legally. But to be fair, no links to the news about this. Because it gives out personal information about the person in question. But Google is your BFF.

This is correct!! And every little bit helps, even if it's just a dollar or two.

~Agreed! Animal hoarders often cannot understand what they are doing wrong. They are terrified that without their "help" the animals will suffer or be killed. They cannot see that life at all costs is not really living nor is it a kindness.
Also it is VERY easy to suddenly find yourself in over your head! I, could have been considered a hoarder when I had three cats dumped on me. I already had two other cats, both fixed. I was assured up down and sideways that the cats were fixed...but they were pregnant! Each queened 5 kittens and suddenly I had 20 cats. The animal shelter employees were rude and unsympathetic (Don't get me wrong I later worked for the shelter and lost patience with people who 'accidentally' had more cats than they could handle) so I did the best I could. I could have ended up on Hoarder's except that my house was always clean. I can't abide the smell of cat urine so my cats were clean and the litter pans were always clean, even though I couldn't afford anything more than provide dirt from my yard. Since I was a gardener it was ok but not the best solution.

Luckily I am not sick and when I was offered help I quickly accepted and adopted out all the kittens (fixed by a local vet) and the other adults until I had my original two cats only. I can understand and feel compassion for animal hoarders even though I would love to smack the disordered thinking out of their skulls. I don't despise or settle on them further abuse because when it is all said and sifted, even the worse offenders are generally, genuinely, trying to help poor abandoned animals.

As you can imagine I am a great proponent of spaying and neutering ALL pets BEFORE they litter. Even one litter of unwanted pups or kittens is too many. It's way to easy to fall in love with "fur babies" and way too hard to give them up when you realize you are overwhelmed.

A woman's house was found down here in Venice, Florida with about 200 dogs and 50 cats. Working for Petco we donated a ton of money and supplies to help with rehoming and fostering these poor animals. Most of the animals were in small fenced areas with just a tarp for cover from the 95 degree sun and brutal storms. Any time animals are found in conditions like this it breaks my heart. This is such a good cause to support! Yay for the Eden community!
