We’ve all seen pictures on the news or the internet – Too many animals (cats, dogs, reptiles, rodents, birds, farm animals) “collected” in deteriorating unhealthy conditions. The animals appear emaciated, lethargic and sickly. The person hoarding the animals may also be suffering the same symptoms as well as mental issues that may be preventing them from realizing the situation is out of control.
Not everyone who has multiple animals is an animal hoarder. However, if you think someone you know is struggling with animal hoarding, call your local humane law enforcement department, police department, animal welfare organization or veterinarian to initiate the process. A phone call may be the first step to getting hoarders and the animals the help they need.
Once the situation has been addressed and neutralized, cleanup is the next step. That’s where Bio-One® becomes your ally.
Dried feces, urine, vomit, fleas and vermin, even expired animals and various other biohazards create dangerous health and safety issues that need professional attention. Attempting a cleanup yourself is not advisable as animal waste can carry dangerous bacteria that can be life threatening to humans.
Animal hoarding results in a dangerous and unhealthy environment that needs to be cleaned out by a professional team of biohazard cleanup technicians with the necessary training and equipment to safely handle the cleanup and disposal of animal feces and other biohazards.
Bio-One® provides the specialized safety equipment and cleaning and disinfecting supplies needed to restore a home to a habitable condition. The situation can be reversed. Contact Bio-One Jefferson County for a free on-site estimate.
