"There have been a variety of definitions for animal hoarding produced over the years, but there are common themes in how it is typically conceptualized," says Dr. Derek Bergeron, psychologist for Texas A&M University Counseling Services and satellite clinician at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. "Generally, animal hoarding is indicated by the accumulation of a large number of animals, overwhelming a person's ability to provide minimal standards of nutrition, sanitation and veterinary care. Typically, failure to acknowledge the deteriorating condition of the animals (including disease, starvation and even death) and the household environment (severe overcrowding, very unsanitary conditions) is demonstrated. Similarly, there is typically a failure to recognize the negative effect of the collection on the hoarder's own health and well-being and on the well-being of any other household members."
According to Bergeron, animal hoarders can cut across many demographics.
...
"The overwhelmed caregiver type is likely to be more situational, and these individuals typically have more insight into the situation," notes Bergeron.
...
"Rescue hoarders often believe that they are the only people who can adequately care for their animals and feel that animals would die without them," says Bergeron. "These hoarders have a strong need for control and do feel in control of the situation despite the problems that exist."
The exploiter hoarders generally lack empathy for people and animals and are indifferent to the harm they cause. Their main concern is to be in control.
"Exploiter hoarders do not feel a strong attachment to their animals, unlike the other two hoarder categories," says Bergeron.
...
"The individuals who are not aware of their disease may not necessarily believe that they are doing something 'wrong,' but they may appreciate that there are consequences if other people discover their behavior," notes Bergeron. "Thus, some individuals hide their behavior, because they desire to continue hoarding animals."
It is important to identify the dangerous consequences for pets that animal hoarding can lead to.
"The nature of hoarding leads to deficits in basic areas of care such as providing food, medical care and attending to sanitation," says Bergeron.
...
"Overall, anecdotal evidence suggests that hoarding is a difficult problem to treat," explains Bergeron.

Derek (our old guitarist) is very talented and we wish him the best. We will be taking off the month of November and part of December.

Which brings us to Derek. Derek Bergeron is our new lead guitarist. Derek joined us in January 2009. Derek began playing the guitar at 13 because he needed something to do. He picked up the guitar in large part because of his interest in heavy metal, including bands such as Metallica. Over time, his interests have expanded greatly, and Derek currently enjoys playing and listening to a variety of music styles. Overall, Derek does not like to classify his tastes, and prefers just listening to music he enjoys, which can come from anyone and anywhere, and ranges from complex instrumental music to simple pop songs. He has played in a number of bands over the years, including hard rock, classic rock, blues, country, and R&B. For example, he played in an acoustic duo, D&D Acoustic, for several years in Ohio, and recently played with the aspiring country singer-songwriter Jake Kellen in Lubbock. Derek is a psychologist who pursued his Ph.D. at The Ohio State University after getting his B.A. from Texas A&M, where he currently works. He is originally from Louisiana. Outside of music and his career, Derek enjoys reading, movies, and cycling.

"The nature of hoarding leads to deficits in basic areas of care such as providing food, medical care, and attending to sanitation," says Bergeron. "Thus, hoarding can lead to starvation, lack of medical treatment, and increased risk of disease transmission."
There are no recognized treatments with strong empirical support for addressing animal hoarding.
"Overall, anecdotal evidence suggests that hoarding is a difficult problem to treat," explains Bergeron.

"They understand that there is a problem, which is why they feel overwhelmed. These individuals generally feel a strong attachment to their animal, which makes addressing the situation more difficult for them."
Rescue hoarders feel that they have a mission in life to save and protect animals. These individuals are often actively engaged in rescue work, and they may even own a shelter. "Rescue hoarders often believe that they are the only people who can adequately care for their animals, and feel that animals would die without them," says Bergeron.
