63 cats surrendered by hoarder in South Carolina: now help is needed, especially for cats who tested positive for FeLV/FIV — 7 Comments

  1. I’m pretty sure neighbors, friends, relatives were aware of the mess. The smell.
    Lack of aggressive prosecution. You don’t cure a hoarder you have to force them into compliance and you can’t do that without some type of legal control. Prosecuting attorneys and judges treat animal abuse like some kind of annoyance. These hoarding cases aside from the misery for the animals cost the taxpayers and other animals in need have to wait while AC tries to sort this mess out. Hoarders don’t take their sick animals to the vet let alone get them S/N. Hoarders destroy homes they live often rentals or something that banks have to take a loss on when a solid home becomes a tear down. Hoarders spread fleas and disease to healthy animals that may come in contact with feces and other filth generated by a hoarder. As always the animals are the real victims but for some reason the hoarder gets the sympathy. Most never even get the bill for their debacle.

    • It still seems the Carolinas take the cake when it comes to abusing animals. …whether it’s hoarding or blatant cruelty.

      • And it will continue. There are laws on the books in SC to protect animals. Trouble is the court system absolutely refuses to enforce them. They hand out fines and work out plea deals. The abusers know this.

  2. South Carolina, North Carolina, again and again, over and over I’ve heard one story after another of animal abuses there…

    • Lindsey Graham, the Senator in S. Carolina is too busy being a radical right wing politician in that state, so I bet that has something to do with many problems there.

  3. When pets are hoarded their general health becomes compromised by irresponsible so-called caregivers. I am sad to say it, but this scenario plays out far too often.
    Really it shouldn’t be allowed to happen in the first place. where are the objective and compassionate bystanders who could have spoken out sooner? Eva
