Could that nice Mr Jones that waves from across the street be an animal hoarder? Or what about old Mrs. Potter down the lane with the long driveway and the kids that don't visit her any longer? Do you know what an animal hoarder looks like? Would you know how to recognize one if they lived on your street? They could live next door or be someone you see at the grocery store. With 3500 prosecuted cases each year and many more than go unnoticed chances are good that you have at least met an animal hoarder before and didn't even realize it. I know I did.

It has taken me several weeks to write this story, and it will take me even longer to write it or tell it without tears being shed. As many of you know, I am an animal lover to the extreme.

Mom hurled the mini van across traffic to the opposite side of the highway and I jumped out running while it was still in motion armed with nothing but a bag of Bugles.
West Side Story - Journal of a First Responder
The gray and blue motor coach sat motionless; one halogen eye popped from its socket: Steam belching from the amputated radiator. The remains of a small two-seater sports car lays crumpled against the buses’ face. An eerie silence momentarily blankets the air before giving way to the loud screams and moaning of those on the bus.
Sirens screech through the gathering rush-hour traffic, fire-trucks and ambulances make u-turns before pulling up behind the remnants of the furrowed coupé which is now silent. Blue tinted glass crunched beneath the heavy boots of the gathering rescue personnel. Trooper-one, just one of Maryland State Police’s Medical-evacuation (Medivac); helicopter, hovers like a giant dragon fly just before it lands upon Emerald-green grass.

The Rescuer at the Rainbow Bridge
Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All the recent arrivals were confused and concerned. They had no idea what to think for they had never experienced a day like this before. But the animals who had spent some time waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was happening and began to gather at the pathway leading to the Bridge to watch. They knew this was something special.
