Animal “shelter” or animal “hoarding”?

The sad news: https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/law-and-crime/article/3007965/decomposing-bodies-dogs-and-cats-found-new-territories

In our experience, we have encountered a few cases of hoarding before. The animals were in dire straits and yet the caregiver/hoarder still thought that he/she was giving them the best and that no other person can do better than he/she.

Hoarding is a mental disease and the animals are the victims.

Sometimes, the caregiver starts off with good intentions, but does not know when to stop. Resources and money run out.

It is a twisted form of egotistical greed.

Always, always do within your means and ensure every single animal under your care is being well looked-after. Know when to stop. Please.
