Animal Hoarding Research Consortium

In an attempt to make more information available, I'm continuing to add multiple links to various animal organizations, laws, government agencies, etc. Tips are more than welcome, and most of the time they'll silently appear.

However, one recent addition deserves special mention, because it deals with animal hoarding, which is an issue that isn't yet well understood, is difficult to resolve given current approaches, and has recidivism rates approaching 100%. The Tufts University Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium provides ample information on the issue and aims toward providing strategies for improving the outcomes for both hoarders and their animal victims. Check out the new downloadable report entitled ANIMAL HOARDING: Structuring Interdisciplinary Responses to Help People, Animals, and Communities at Risk.
