Animal hoarders may start out as animal lovers with good intentions.

Most do, said Anita Edson, media relations manager for Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas.

But hoarders or "collectors" just don't know when to say no.

SPCA officials say the owner of P.A.W.S. Around the Planet, an animal
rescue facility raided Thursday, may fit that criteria.

"Hoarding - that's what we have here," said Dave Garcia, director of
humane law enforcement and rescue services for SPCA.

"They (hoarders) are more interested in containing control of the animals
than alleviating the animal's suffering and neglect," Ms. Edson said.
"They have a profound denial that it exists."
