42 exotic birds rescued from hoarder house Michigan

In total, 46 animals living in "deplorable" conditions were taken from the home: 42 birds, 3 degus and one rabbit.



"We've never had this many birds," Donohoo said. "And we hope to have qualified adopters flock to HSHV as soon as they're ready for adoption—which we anticipate will be Wednesday."

Interested adopters can find information and applications on HSHV's website or call (734) 662-5585. HSHV is open for adoptions seven days/week, Monday through Wednesday 11-6, Thursday and Friday 11-7 and Saturday and Sunday 11-5.

The HSHV Cruelty Investigator team will be submitting a report on the hoarding case to the Washtenaw County prosecutor's office for review. HSHV encourages anyone who suspects a crime involving animals to call (734) 661-3512 or submit a report to HSHV online.

Thanks for posting this information. Just moved to a new home and we were just talking about rescuing a cockatiel. We have one cockatiel now, but we would love to have another one join our family.

Re: 42 exotic birds rescued from hoarder house Michigan

Reading up on Facebook some people are mad because they did not turn all the birds over to the bird rescue units there. They are being accused of trying to gain a profit from it. Always someone wanting to complain

Re: 42 exotic birds rescued from hoarder house Michigan

Christine, just wanted to thank you for posting the heads up about this situation so that some of our members might be able to go and adopt these poor birds. Give them a better life.

It's crazy how people can be so completely callous in their pursuit of money that they'd allow their animals to suffer in such terrible conditions. It's almost soulless.

"Several inches of feces"? Really?!? Despicable.

Re: 42 exotic birds rescued from hoarder house Michigan

I honestly believe that people who are animal hoarders suffer from mental illness. It helps me to forgive them a bit and not want to strangle them or lock them up in a closet filled with their own feces.

I was just about to post this. I have a "mental health disorder" and can totally see how this could happen. My wife is my safeguard against me doing things like this to be honest. Peoples with mental health issues have to have someone else to be their gate and they have to always trust them.

Re: 42 exotic birds rescued from hoarder house Michigan

I hear what you all are saying, and usually I'd be right there with you...

Buuuuuuuuuuuuut the article says that the findings indicated that the birds were, for the most part, being bred for profit. Kind of shifts this particular situation from the potential "mental health disorder" bracket and over into the greed category for me.

But either way, I hope all of those birds fare better with their second homes.

Re: 42 exotic birds rescued from hoarder house Michigan

There are different types of animals needing rescue. I don't think counting a breeder for profit who keeps the animals in disgusting conditions should be labeled a hoarder. A hoarder is usually a mental condition. I know I did a ferret rescue once, that was horrible to see, dead animals in with live animals. Food and water missing from cages, cages filled with feces ect. But the women who had them really thought she was saving them because they were "unwanted". It started with the best intentions and then she just kept getting more and it spiralled out of control. You can usually tell the difference from the rest of the living conditions as well. She also collected a lot of strange items, plastic sacks and readers digest...just piles of both all over.

We need more than jail and legal fee's in these cases. There should be mandatory mental health evaluations and they should have to get the help they need, along with any of the legal issues they will need to deal with, including home evaluations for many years, many of these people are not able to stop on their own.

Yeah, this sounds more like a backyard breeder who didn't know what he/she was doing, rather than a hoarder situation...

And from the sound of things they weren't so far gone.... most birds in hoarder situation end up being in the worst conditions of all.

I NEVER want to deal with another one of those situations as long as I live!
