Professional Help For Hoarders
There’s nothing wrong with loving animals and wanting to care for them. But when your beloved pets are literally overrunning your household, they create problems not only for you, but themselves as well.
You may have started out as harmless humanitarian with a heart for rescues and strays, or perhaps you live alone and have always found animals to be your best companions, bringing more of them into your home over the years.
With time, however, the number of pets in your house can outstrip what you are reasonably able to care for, and you became an animal hoarder.
Even if you spend your entire day tending to them, their constant needs might prove too demanding and it may be difficult to keep their food and water supply consistent.
To compound the problem, they will likely make a habit of relieving themselves in inappropriate areas and destroying articles of furniture. Moreover, when the attention due pets is compromised, a common result is a lack of proper medical care.
