Are you a pet hoarder?
Did you know?…
~ 250,000 animals per year are victims of hoarders. (Source: Animal Legal Defense Fund)
~ Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered. About 75% of owned pets are neutered. (Source: ASPCA)
~ There is something called “Pet Hoarders Disease” which is linked to obsessive-compulsive disorder. The compulsion to collect large number of animals is considered animal abuse. They are often neglected and mistreated. Animal hoarding equals animal cruelty.
Be a responsible pet owner. Spay or neuter your pets and don’t collect too many.
