Animal hoarding: When compassion turns to chaos

Email

"I don't think anybody intentionally wants to be a hoarder. I think they think they're providing a home," said Tracey Janisch, manager of the Humane Society of Polk County shelter in Crookston.

She helped remove more than 60 cats from a house recently, she said. "And there's still more," she said.

It's the biggest example of animal hoarding she's seen since she joined the shelter in 2008.
