Good intent gone awry is a great way to describe the conditions
when things get out of control with your pets. According to Wikipedia: Animal hoarding is keeping a higher-than-usual number of animals as domestic pets without ability to properly house or care for them, while at the same time denying this inability. Compulsive hoarding can be characterized as a symptom of mental disorder rather than deliberate cruelty towards animals.
Not everyone who has multiple animals is an animal hoarder. However, if you think someone you know is struggling with animal hoarding, here are some ways you can help according to the ASPCA:

Hazmat Cleanup's Hoarding Cleanup Team understands that household hoarding can be a very delicate and sensitive situation for the homeowner. We know that many of the contents in the home are of great value to our clients and that they have become very attached. That’s the difference between Hazmat Cleanup and a junk removal company. We’re very patient, understanding, and judge free while helping to sort, clean, and dispose of unwanted items.
After the initial cleaning, Hazmat Cleanup can be hired to periodically visit the hoarder home to do a ‘maintenance’ cleaning, sorting, and trash disposal in order to keep the problem from getting out of control again and to consistently keep the home a safe and functional environment to live in. We’ve included some helpful links for hoarders and families of hoarding. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about our hoarding cleanup services or hoarding maintenance services in the Tampa area.
