Storyline

Delves into the hearts and minds of individuals afflicted with this disorder and provides a voice for the family and friends who are determined to prevent their loved ones from spinning further out of control. In each of the six episodes, cameras will enter the homes of men and women, from their early 20s through the retirement years, discovering what it's like for animals and people to live in toxic conditions that result from an unbelievably large menagerie of animals. And, Animal Planet gets to the heart of the matter, exploring the reasons why these individuals turned to hoarding and how their problems spun rapidly out of control. Written by Animal Planet

An Insult to All Animal Hoarders Everywhere!
22 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Animal hoarding, a serious bona fide concern, is portrayed as a formulaic, Opera Buffo, freak-show farce! Here, two hoarders are BOTH stereotyped as stupid and fat...well, fat but very "nice"--gotta have that empathy factor, right? 1)"Bonnie", an obese diabetic, asthmatic lives with her mother and obese forty-year old son who lost his house to foreclosure, and now lives in her basement. The house is overrun with cute, yappy little dogs which she refuses to let outside. Ammonia and fecal dust permeate the air. 2)For six months, a man hasn't cleaned up his home, a 30-cat, pee-on-every-wall, litter-box. His wife has kidney problems and he dearly loves and misses so very, very much, but she can't return to a potentially infectious environment. 3)Poop and pee, yuks and eeyews, concerned experts and relatives, tears and interventions and great big yawns for viewers.
