UNHEALTHY, DANGEROUS, AND INADEQUATE LIVING CONDITIONS AFFECT EVERYONE.
People struggling with animal hoarding won’t admit that they have a problem. They might have the best intention of helping and taking care of animals but the living conditions associated with extreme animal housing make it difficult or almost impossible to provide decent care to these creatures. And not only are the animals affected but the individuals as well.
The reality is that closed spaces overcrowded with animals will result in unhealthy, biohazardous conditions. Animals may be kept in cages, rooms, and places where their same urine and feces are accumulated.
This represents an important biohazard risk of infection, for the animals and the individuals. If animals don’t have areas designated for their feeding, bathing, and physiological needs, they’re at risk of getting sick and infected from their own waste.
As for humans, they are highly susceptible to these dangerous environments. The sad part of this narrative is that individuals struggling with animal hoarding will go out of their way to try to accommodate animals, so much that they’ll neglect themselves, not knowing that animals are also being affected by this dangerous cycle.
Animal urine and feces create ammonia gases that can be toxic for humans. Also, a house with poor, unhealthy living conditions usually has very low air quality, because of the contamination and filth. This is a special health risk for everyone involved, as they can become ill from breathing this toxic air.
