Animal Hoarding affects communities across the globe. Although it is not a new phenomenon, authorities have been employing new and innovative ways to approach the problem. With the recent attention given to the topic by national media outlets, communities have marveled at the unbelievable conditions hoarders create for themselves and animals. However, in order to effect positive change for all parties involved, communities must be proactive instead of reactive. Hoarders have a 100% recidivism rate without appropriate intervention. The time to think about how hoarding will impact your community isn’t when the case is reported to the media. This portion of the course will outline some of the proactive measures your community can employ to handle some of its best-kept secrets (hoarders) and will review recent trends in establishing community-based responses.





The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established by the National Sheriffs’ Association to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse and its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans. The Center also promotes officer safety in officer-dog encounters through continuing education and training.





The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
