    Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium (HARC)



    To the home page of HARC, the Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium. We have assembled the resources on this site to increase awareness about a complex disorder which has until recently not received serious attention by medical, mental health, and public health professionals. Known to animal protection groups or SPCA's for many years as "collectors", the depth of the pathology underlying this behavior is just beginning to be uncovered, and shows striking similarities to other forms of hoarding behavior which are better understood.

    Detailed Information:
    Our goal is to eliminate stereotypes and increase the basline level of awareness of this behavior among those invovled in caring for animals, public agencies, and those involved in public health and the legal system. It is our hope that increased awareness will stimulate additional research and help interested parties come together so that collaboratively they may help those involved in hoarding cases, be they friends, family members, municipal authorities, health professionals, or animal protection groups, achieve a more humane and more lasting intervention for all involved.
