Is u lus om dinge op u solder of kelder te gooi, eerder as om dit in die asblik te gooi? Vra u maat u voortdurend wat u moontlik sal doen met die 153 wynproppe wat u die afgelope ses (er ... 12?) Maande gespaar het, of die ou padatlas wat u sedert die 80's in u kattebak gelê het? Of dit nou ou klere, gebruikte kombuisware of leë verpakking is, ons het projekte wat nuwe dinge in nuwe dinge blaas - en moontlik selfs die styl van u huis (of u eie!)

Animal Hoarders: Die siekte en die misdaad

Dierehouers - wat vroeër beskryf is as "versamelaars" wie se goeie bedoelings skeefgeloop het - word nou erken as individue wie se geestesongesteldheid of dwang kriminele gedrag kan veroorsaak met afskuwelike gevolge vir diere, die hoarders -gesinne en hul gemeenskappe.

Die Dierewagter: 'n Profiel
Volgens dr. Gary J. Patronek, V.M.D., Ph.D., "is [hoeders] per definisie onbewus van die uiterste lyding, duidelik vir die oorsaaklike waarnemer, van hul diere." 1

Daar is vier kenmerke wat dui op hamstergedrag:

  • Opgaarders versamel 'n groot aantal diere.
  • Opgaarders voorsien nie in die belangrikste fisiese en sosiale behoeftes van diere nie, insluitend voedsel, water, skuiling, veeartsenykundige sorg en sanitêre lewensomstandighede.
  • Hoarders bied verskonings vir, of ontken, die afskuwelike lewensomstandighede van hul diere en, in sommige gevalle, hul kinders.
  • Volharding in die opbou en beheer van diere. 2

Dat iemand van diere hou, maar vir hulle so oneindig wreed is, klink paradoksaal, sê dr. Randall Lockwood, senior vise-president vir forensiese wetenskappe en projekte teen wreedheid vir die ASPCA. Dit is te wyte aan 'n mislukking om te erken dat lyding eintlik een van die kenmerke van kompulsiewe ophoping van diere is. jare lank in betreurenswaardige omstandighede eerder as om deur 'n vreedsame en pynlose dood deur gekwalifiseerde tegnici voorsien te word.

Die oorbevolkingskrisis wat met die diere saamgaan, stel hoarders in staat om oral te werk. Die Navorsingskonsortium van die Opvulling van Diere beraam dat daar jaarliks ​​regoor die land minstens 3 000 tot 5 000 nuwe opgaardingsgevalle is. “ Diere kan nie in die duiwel gegooi word nie, ” verduidelik dr. Patronek. Ons het dit by mans en vroue gesien. Ons het dit gesien by egpare en geslagte tussen generasies. ” 4

'N Lot wat erger is as die dood
Elke optrede van 'n houer lei tot ernstige, selfs noodlottige, verwaarlosing van diere in hul sorg. Oorbevolkte en vuil toestande sorg vir maklike oordrag van wurms, vlooie, skurfte, oormyte, infeksies in die boonste lugweë, parvo, besmetting en ander siektes, wat kan lei tot ontlasting en urine. Opgeboude diere word gewoonlik van die basiese veeartsenykundige sorg ontneem, insluitend sterilisasie en sterilisasie, wat veroorsaak dat die aantal diere toeneem, en/of lei tot die skeiding van diere deur geslag en die opsluiting daarvan in klein hokke of badkamers. Beserings - insluitend gebreekte ledemate en wonde wat in gevegte met ander diere gely is - word nie behandel nie en lei tot infeksies. 'N Studie wat deur dr. Patronek uitgevoer is, het bevind dat diere na bewering dood gevind is of aan' ooglopende siekte of besering 'ly, in 80 persent van die opgegaarde gevalle. 5

Diere se sosiale behoeftes word eweneens deur hoarders geïgnoreer. Honde, wat troeteldiere is en wat geselskap verlang, word dikwels jare lank vasgeketting of in hokke gehou, en hulle ontwikkel dikwels anti-sosiale gedrag en word baie angstig of aggressief. Katte wat menslike kontak ontneem word, raak skraal en - as hulle toegelaat word om voort te plant - produseer hulle wilde nageslag.

Die gedragsprobleme wat veroorsaak word deur fisiese en sielkundige verwaarlosing, elimineer feitlik die kanse van diere om gerehabiliteer en aangeneem te word. Vir baie is genadedood die menslikste opsie.

Die bedreiging vir menslike lewens
Alhoewel die gevaar waarin opgaarmiddels diere plaas, duidelik is, sê The Consolidium of Animals of Animals: "Opskorting van enige aard is 'n beduidende gesondheidsorg vir beide insittendes en inwoners in die omgewing." 6

Die nabye omstandighede wat in die opgaarplek voorkom, kan die oordrag van siektes van diere na mense, soos toksoplasmose, psittakose en salmonellose, vergemaklik. Hierdie siektes bedreig ook die menslike afhanklikes van 'n hoarder, veral kinders en bejaardes, wat teenwoordig was in meer as die helfte van die opgaardingsgevalle wat in een studie ondersoek is. 7 Hoë vlakke van ammoniak kan ook voorkom in die huise van opgaarmiddels as gevolg van opgehoopte diere -urine.

As gevolg van hierdie moontlike gesondheidsgevare, het sommige stede - insluitend New York en Seattle - taakgroepe tussen agentskappe geskep wat voorsiening maak vir volwasse en kinderbeskermingsdienste, dierebeheerowerhede en gesondheidsdepartemente om saam te werk aan oplossings in die ophoping van sake. 8

Herhaal oortreders
Volgens dr. Elizabeth Berliner, die Janet L. Swanson -direkteur van Shelter Medicine by Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine, is die herhalingsyfer vir dierehoewe byna 100 persent. 9 'n Onvoldoende vonnis vir veroordeelde dierehoewe - of een wat nie deur gereelde amptelike besoeke afgedwing word om te verseker dat dit nagekom word nie - waarborg feitlik dat die hoarder terugkeer na sy of haar weë, tesame met die rampspoedige gevolge vir mense en diere. "Die ou gesegde," sê dr. Patronek, is dat hamsters "'n ander kat kry teen die tyd dat hulle by die huis kom." 10 Patronek het bevind dat byna 60 persent van die gevalle van diere wat hy hersien het, herhaling insluit. 11

Wat jy kan doen
Kontak menslike amptenare en die polisie as u vermoed dat diere deur hul opsigters verwaarloos of mishandel word-selfs diegene wat goed bedoel lyk. Die klagtes van die bure noem dikwels die onhigiëniese toestande, reuke, geraas (bv. Blaf) en "besmettings" van knaagdiere en insekte wat algemeen verband hou met situasies waar diere opgesamel word. Minstens 57 persent van die diere-opgaar-sake word deur die bure onder die owerhede se aandag gebring. 12

Ondersoek eers voordat u 'n dier aan 'n skuiling, menslike groep of 'redder' oorgee. Besoek self die fasiliteit en aanvaar geen verskonings om nie die diere se woonplekke te sien nie. Stel vrae oor diereversorging en aannemingskoerse en -beleid.

Skryf aan amptenare en die media wanneer die opdroging van sake plaasvind en dring daarop aan dat vullishouers alle kontak met diere belet en beveel om psigiatriese evaluerings en gepaste berading of behandeling te ondergaan. In 2001 het Illinois die eerste staat geword wat die opsameling van diere in sy statuut teen wreedheid definieer en aanspreek. 13 Die wet vereis dat veroordeelde veehouers 'n geestelike evaluering en gepaste behandeling ondergaan. 14 Rhode Island het 'n soortgelyke wet in 2017 aanvaar. 15

Die voorkoming van ophoping en alle ander vorme van wreedheid teenoor geselskapsdiere begin met die stryd teen die oorbevolkingskrisis. Maak seker dat u diere - en dié van familie, vriende en bure - gesteriliseer of gesteriliseer word.

Ondersoek voordat u 'n dier aan 'n skuiling, menslike groep of 'redder' oorgee. Besoek self die fasiliteit en aanvaar geen verskonings om nie die diere se woonplekke te sien nie. Stel vrae oor diereversorging en aannemingskoerse en -beleid.

Skryf aan amptenare en die media wanneer die opdroging van sake plaasvind en dring daarop aan dat vullishouers alle kontak met diere belet en beveel om psigiatriese evaluerings en gepaste berading of behandeling te ondergaan. In 2001 het Illinois die eerste staat geword wat die opsameling van diere in sy statuut teen wreedheid definieer en aanspreek. 13 Die wet vereis dat veroordeelde veehouers 'n geestelike evaluering en gepaste behandeling ondergaan. 14 Rhode Island het in 2017 'n soortgelyke wet aanvaar. 15

Die voorkoming van ophoping en alle ander vorme van wreedheid teenoor geselskapsdiere begin met die stryd teen die oorbevolkingskrisis. Maak seker dat u diere - en dié van familie, vriende en bure - gesteriliseer of gesteriliseer word.


Animal Hoarders: Die siekte en die misdaad

Dierehoewe - wat vroeër beskryf is as "versamelaars" wie se goeie bedoelings skeefgeloop het - word nou erken as individue wie se geestesongesteldheid of dwang kriminele gedrag kan veroorsaak met afskuwelike gevolge vir diere, die hoarders -gesinne en hul gemeenskappe.

Die Dierewagter: 'n Profiel
Volgens dr. Gary J. Patronek, V.M.D., Ph.D., "is [hoeders] per definisie onbewus van die uiterste lyding, duidelik vir die oorsaaklike waarnemer, van hul diere." 1

Daar is vier kenmerke wat dui op hamstergedrag:

  • Opgaarders versamel 'n groot aantal diere.
  • Opbergers voorsien nie in die belangrikste fisiese en sosiale behoeftes van diere nie, insluitend voedsel, water, skuiling, veeartsenykundige sorg en sanitêre lewensomstandighede.
  • Hoarders bied verskonings vir, of ontken, die afskuwelike lewensomstandighede van hul diere en, in sommige gevalle, hul kinders.
  • Volharding in die opbou en beheer van diere. 2

Dat iemand van diere hou, maar vir hulle so oneindig wreed is, klink paradoksaal, sê dr. Randall Lockwood, senior visepresident vir forensiese wetenskappe en teenwreedheidsprojekte vir die ASPCA. Dit is te wyte aan 'n mislukking om te erken dat lyding eintlik een van die kenmerke van kompulsiewe ophoping van diere is. jare lank in jammerlike omstandighede eerder as om deur 'n vreedsame en pynlose dood deur gekwalifiseerde tegnici voorsien te word.

Die oorbevolkingskrisis wat metgeselle veroorsaak, stel hamsters in staat om oral te werk. Die Navorsingskonsortium van die Opvulling van Diere beraam dat daar jaarliks ​​regoor die land minstens 3 000 tot 5 000 nuwe opgaardingsgevalle is. “ Diere kan nie in die duiwel gegooi word nie, ” verduidelik dr. Patronek. Ons het dit by mans en vroue gesien. Ons het dit gesien by egpare en geslagte tussen generasies. ” 4

'N Lot wat erger is as die dood
Die gedrag van elke opgaarder lei tot ernstige, selfs noodlottige, verwaarlosing van diere wat in hul bewaring is. Oorbevolkte en vuil toestande sorg vir maklike oordrag van wurms, vlooie, skurfte, oormyte, infeksies in die boonste lugweë, parvo, besmetting en ander siektes, wat kan lei tot ontlasting en urine. Opgeboude diere word gewoonlik van die basiese veeartsenykundige sorg ontneem, insluitend sterilisasie en sterilisasie, wat veroorsaak dat die aantal diere toeneem, en/of lei tot die skeiding van diere deur geslag en die opsluiting daarvan in klein hokke of badkamers. Beserings - insluitend gebreekte ledemate en wonde wat tydens gevegte met ander diere gely is - word nie behandel nie en lei tot infeksies. 'N Studie wat deur dr. Patronek uitgevoer is, het bevind dat diere na bewering dood of aan' ooglopende siekte of besering 'gevind is, in 80 persent van die gevalle wat opgegaar is. 5

Diere se sosiale behoeftes word ewe veel deur hoarders geïgnoreer. Honde, wat troeteldiere is en geselligheid verlang, word dikwels jare lank vasgeketting of in hokke gehou, en hulle ontwikkel dikwels antisosiale gedrag en word baie angstig of aggressief. Katte wat menslike kontak ontneem word, raak skraal en - as hulle toegelaat word om voort te plant - produseer hulle wilde nageslag.

Die gedragsprobleme wat veroorsaak word deur fisiese en sielkundige verwaarlosing, elimineer feitlik die kans dat diere gerehabiliteer en aangeneem word. Vir baie is genadedood die mees menslike opsie.

Die bedreiging vir menslike lewens
Though the jeopardy that hoarders place animals in is clear, The Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium states, “Hoarding of any sort poses significant health concerns for both occupants and nearby residents.” 6

The close quarters common in hoarding situations may facilitate the transmission of diseases from animals to humans, such as toxoplasmosis, psittacosis, and salmonellosis. These diseases also threaten a hoarder’s human dependents, especially children and the elderly, who were present in more than half of hoarding cases surveyed in one study. 7 High levels of ammonia may also be present in hoarder’s homes resulting from accumulated animal urine.

Because of these potential health hazards, some cities—including New York City and Seattle—have created interagency task forces that allow for adult and child protective services, animal control authorities, and health departments to work cooperatively on solutions in hoarding cases. 8

Repeat Offenders
According to Dr. Elizabeth Berliner, the Janet L. Swanson Director of Shelter Medicine at Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine, the relapse rate for animal hoarders is near 100 percent. 9 An inadequate sentence for convicted animal hoarders—or one that is not enforced via regular official visits to ensure compliance—virtually guarantees a hoarder’s return to his or her ways, along with the disastrous consequences for humans and animals alike. “The old adage,” says Dr. Patronek, is that hoarders “ get another cat by the time they’re home from court.” 10 Patronek found that nearly 60 percent of animal hoarding cases that he reviewed involved recidivism. 11

Wat jy kan doen
Contact humane officials and the police if you suspect animals are being neglected or abused by their caretakers—even those who appear well-intentioned. Neighbors’ complaints often cite the unsanitary conditions, odors, noise (e.g., barking), and rodent and insect “infestations” commonly associated with animal hoarding situations. At least 57 percent of animal-hoarding cases are brought to authorities’ attention by a hoarder’s neighbors. 12

Investigate before you turn an animal over to any shelter, humane group, or “rescuer.” Tour the facility yourself and accept no excuses for not being allowed to view the animals’ living quarters. Ask questions about animal care and adoption rates and policies.

Write to officials and the media when hoarding cases are publicized and urge that hoarders be barred from all contact with animals and ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluations and appropriate counseling or treatment. In 2001, Illinois became the first state to define and address animal hoarding in its anti-cruelty statute. 13 The law requires convicted animal hoarders to undergo a mental evaluation and appropriate treatment. 14 Rhode Island passed a similar law in 2017. 15

Preventing hoarding and all other forms of cruelty to companion animals begins with fighting the overpopulation crisis. Ensure that your animals—and those of family, friends, and neighbors—are spayed or neutered.


Animal Hoarders: The Illness and The Crime

Animal hoarders—once described as “collectors” whose good intentions had gone awry—are now recognized as individuals whose mental illness or compulsion can cause criminal behavior with horrific consequences for animals, the hoarders’ families, and their communities.

The Animal Hoarder: A Profile
According to Dr. Gary J. Patronek, V.M.D., Ph.D., “[H]oarders are by definition oblivious to the extreme suffering, obvious to the causal observer, of their animals.” 1

There are four characteristics indicative of hoarding behavior:

  • Hoarders amass a large number of animals.
  • Hoarders fail to provide for animals’ most basic physical and social needs, including food, water, shelter, veterinary care, and sanitary living conditions.
  • Hoarders offer excuses for, or deny, the abysmal living conditions of their animals and, in some cases, their children.
  • Persistence in accumulating and controlling animals. 2

“That someone could love animals but be so immeasurably cruel to them sounds paradoxical,” says Dr. Randall Lockwood, Senior Vice President for Forensic Sciences and Anti-Cruelty Projects for the ASPCA. “This is due to a failure in recognizing that suffering is actually one of the characteristics of compulsive animal hoarding.” 3 This aspect of hoarding behavior is common among so-called “no-kill” shelters, where animals are often warehoused for years in deplorable conditions rather than provided with a peaceful and painless death by qualified technicians.

The companion animal overpopulation crisis enables hoarders to operate everywhere. The Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium estimates there are at least 3,000 to 5,000 new hoarding cases annually across the country. “Animal hoarders can’t be pigeonholed,” explains Dr. Patronek.”We are seeing these behaviors in all socioeconomic strata in very wealthy people and very poor people. We’ve seen it in men and women. We’ve seen it in married couples and inter-generational families.” 4

A Fate Worse than Death
Every hoarder’s behavior translates into severe, even fatal, neglect for animals in their custody. Overcrowded and filthy conditions make for easy transmission of worms, fleas, mange, ear mites, upper respiratory infections, parvo, distemper, and other diseases and can lead to feces-matted coats and urine burns. Hoarded animals are commonly deprived of basic veterinary care, including spaying and neutering, which causes the numbers of animals to increase, and/or results in the separation of animals by sex and their confinement to small cages or bathrooms. Injuries—including broken limbs and wounds suffered in fights with other animals—go untreated and lead to infections. A study conducted by Dr. Patronek found that animals were reportedly found dead or suffering from “obvious disease or injury” in 80 percent of hoarding cases reviewed. 5

Animals’ social needs are equally ignored by hoarders. Dogs, who are pack animals and crave companionship, are often kept chained or in pens for years, and they often develop anti-social behaviors and become highly fearful or aggressive. Cats deprived of human contact become skittish and—if allowed to reproduce—produce feral offspring.

The behavioral problems caused by physical and psychological neglect virtually eliminate animals’ chances of being rehabilitated and adopted. For many, euthanasia is the most humane option.

Overcrowded and filthy conditions make for easy transmission of worms, fleas, mange, ear mites, upper respiratory infections, parvo, distemper, and other diseases and can lead to feces-matted coats and urine burns. Hoarded animals are commonly deprived of basic veterinary care, including spaying and neutering, which causes the numbers of animals to increase, and/or results in the separation of animals by sex and their confinement to small cages or bathrooms. Injuries—including broken limbs and wounds suffered in fights with other animals—go untreated and lead to infections. A study conducted by Dr. Patronek found that animals were reportedly found dead or suffering from “obvious disease or injury” in 80 percent of hoarding cases reviewed. 5

Animals’ social needs are equally ignored by hoarders. Dogs, who are pack animals and crave companionship, are often kept chained or in pens for years, and they often develop anti-social behaviors and become highly fearful or aggressive. Cats deprived of human contact become skittish and—if allowed to reproduce—produce feral offspring.

The behavioral problems caused by physical and psychological neglect virtually eliminate animals’ chances of being rehabilitated and adopted. For many, euthanasia is the most humane option.

The Threat to Human Lives
Though the jeopardy that hoarders place animals in is clear, The Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium states, “Hoarding of any sort poses significant health concerns for both occupants and nearby residents.” 6

The close quarters common in hoarding situations may facilitate the transmission of diseases from animals to humans, such as toxoplasmosis, psittacosis, and salmonellosis. These diseases also threaten a hoarder’s human dependents, especially children and the elderly, who were present in more than half of hoarding cases surveyed in one study. 7 High levels of ammonia may also be present in hoarder’s homes resulting from accumulated animal urine.

Because of these potential health hazards, some cities—including New York City and Seattle—have created interagency task forces that allow for adult and child protective services, animal control authorities, and health departments to work cooperatively on solutions in hoarding cases. 8

Repeat Offenders
According to Dr. Elizabeth Berliner, the Janet L. Swanson Director of Shelter Medicine at Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine, the relapse rate for animal hoarders is near 100 percent. 9 An inadequate sentence for convicted animal hoarders—or one that is not enforced via regular official visits to ensure compliance—virtually guarantees a hoarder’s return to his or her ways, along with the disastrous consequences for humans and animals alike. “The old adage,” says Dr. Patronek, is that hoarders “ get another cat by the time they’re home from court.” 10 Patronek found that nearly 60 percent of animal hoarding cases that he reviewed involved recidivism. 11

Wat jy kan doen
Contact humane officials and the police if you suspect animals are being neglected or abused by their caretakers—even those who appear well-intentioned. Neighbors’ complaints often cite the unsanitary conditions, odors, noise (e.g., barking), and rodent and insect “infestations” commonly associated with animal hoarding situations. At least 57 percent of animal-hoarding cases are brought to authorities’ attention by a hoarder’s neighbors. 12

Investigate before you turn an animal over to any shelter, humane group, or “rescuer.” Tour the facility yourself and accept no excuses for not being allowed to view the animals’ living quarters. Ask questions about animal care and adoption rates and policies.

Write to officials and the media when hoarding cases are publicized and urge that hoarders be barred from all contact with animals and ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluations and appropriate counseling or treatment. In 2001, Illinois became the first state to define and address animal hoarding in its anti-cruelty statute. 13 The law requires convicted animal hoarders to undergo a mental evaluation and appropriate treatment. 14 Rhode Island passed a similar law in 2017. 15

Preventing hoarding and all other forms of cruelty to companion animals begins with fighting the overpopulation crisis. Ensure that your animals—and those of family, friends, and neighbors—are spayed or neutered.
