I have questions about Animal Hoarding
Animal “hoarding” is when a person is housing more animals than they can adequately and appropriately care for. Minimal standards for care and needs of the animal are not met related to their nutrition, sanitation, shelter, and/or veterinary care. There may be several reasons why someone begins to accumulate animals and it may be incredibly difficult for someone to part with an animal.
If you need assistance or help with caring for your pets and animals in Minnesota please reach out to the Animal Humane Society Pet Helpline at 952-HELP-PET (952-435-7738). More information is available on their website: Animal Humane Society
