    Mental illness. Clearly. I don't believe God sends sick people to hell.

    Touche! Yes, animal hoarding is identified as part of the OCD family of disorders in the DSM-IV and is therefore considered a mental disorder.

    I am quick to judge, I admit, hopefully they will receive treatment that will keep this from happening again, however, most animal hoarders return the hoarding behavior.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsive_hoarding#Animal_hoarding

    Not only are there significant health risks associated with compulsive hoarding, but scientists are also trying to pinpoint how significant the interference is with occupational and social functioning in a hoarder's daily life. In a pool of compulsive hoarders, 42% found their behavior problematic to the 63% of their family and friends who saw the behavior as problematic. The findings suggest that individuals who hoard may exhibit impaired sensitivity to their own and othersÂ’ emotions, and conversely, relate the world around them by forming attachments to possessions [or animals] rather than to people. Lower emotional intelligence among hoarding patients may also impact their ability to discard and organize their possessions.[38] With such detrimental characteristics, comprehensive research has been performed to find a cure. Although this is ongoing research, most investigations have found that only a third of patients who hoard show an adequate response to these medications and therapeutic interventions.
