Animal Services

Animals often become unintentional victims in situations of Squalor and Hoarding. The environment, in which they live, can be quite dangerous for them and detrimental to their health and well-being and that of their carer/s. There are also instances in which the pet owner is being moved from their squalid environment (e.g. to be hospitalised or moved into new accommodation) and they are unable to take their animals with them. There are some services which can help animals in these situations.
