Have you been inside?   No?   Take a hint.  Visit-go inside- any Rescue or Sanctuary before sending a life or money.  Sound too good to be true?  Do the math.  Think.  How can one person, house, feed, clean and rehabilitate over 130 dogs on 3/4 of an acre with no staff?   Of course, this is all alleged.  

Do Hoarders Often Pose as Rescue Groups or Sanctuaries?

Absolutely. Research shows many hoarders are beginning to set themselves up as rescue shelters, complete with 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status. They may appear to be sensible people, persuasively conveying their love for animals and readiness to take those who are sick and with special needs. Furthermore, the Internet appears to be becoming a great tool for solicitation.

When looking to place an animal, it is easy for a person to get seduced by a pretty website. Caution people to look behind the curtain before giving over an animal.

Here are several signs that a rescue group or shelter may involve a hoarder:

The group is unwilling to let visitors see the location where animals are kept.**

The group will not disclose the number of animals in its care.**

Little effort is made to adopt animals out.**

More animals are continually taken in, despite the poor condition of existing animals.**

Legitimate shelters and rescue organizations are viewed as the enemy.**

Animals may be received at a remote location (parking lot, street corner, etc.) rather than at the group's facilities.**
