HOARDER ON THE KERN COUNTY ANIMAL COMMISSION

This is so unbelievable but one can expect surprises from Kern County, the armpit of California.

A Commissioner on the Kern County Animal Commission is a hoarder. So no wonder the most infamous hoarders chose to locate to Kern. Plus a breeder is also on the commission. I hate animal commissions, they are nothing but trouble. I am in favor of a state operated complaint board instead. I'm still shaking my head on this one.

Thank you so much for bring this issue to our attention.

I'm a researcher for the series Confessions: Animal Hoarding, currently airing on Animal Planet that tells the stories of people overwhelmed by the number of pets they own. The problem is on the rise and affect communities across America.

If you are concerned about the health of animals in someone's care and suspect they may be hoarding them, we might be able to help.

Most animal hoarders don’t see themselves as hoarders, and sometimes don’t intentionally collect animals. Their relationship with their animals has threatened their relationships with friends and family.

Most of these situations aren’t dealt with until they become criminal. This results in animals being euthanized by over-stressed shelters, and doesn’t address the underlying psychological issues - meaning nearly 100% of people end up in the same situation again.

We are dedicated to finding comprehensive long-term solutions and believe therapy to be key to this. We can bring in experts to help people and their pets.
