Animal hoarding is rarely prosecuted as a crime because many of the people who do it suffer from mental health conditions, experts said."You're essentially trying to criminalize a mental disorder," Lockwood said. "But because it's a mental disorder, it's not necessarily a get out of jail free card."Lockwood said he's seen people from all walks of life engage in animal hoarding."There have been doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, nurses," he said.Most prosecutors won't issue charges unless there are dead animals, said Lockwood. Even then, there are no good national statistics on animal hoarding because every state has different laws on animal cruelty. Beginning in January, the FBI is now having police departments across the country include animal cruelty crimes in the National Incident-Based Reporting System, a database of felonies. The system is still being worked out, but it should help measure the size of the problem nationwide."Philosophically, it's important that the FBI is taking animal cruelty seriously," Lockwood said. "The FBI considers that in addition to the animals being victims, certainly society is a victim. It affects the neighbors and friends. It puts a burden on the mental health facilities and the courts."Grenier had been active in animal rescue circles for years, taking in cats and trying to adopt them out. In August of 2013, she incorporated the Country Cat/City Kitty Rescue, a nonprofit animal welfare group.She helped organize cat shows at the Novi Pet Expo working with the International Cat Association."She won humanitarian of the year a bunch of times because she was so devoted to placing and rescuing cats," Lorimer said. "She was a rescuer, not a hoarder."But Livonia animal control officers noted they'd had multiple visits to her home."There have been four separate occasions that we've had to serve a warrant at that house," Wilson said. "There were large quantities of cats in very poor condition. There were corpses in the garage."In October, Wayne County prosecutors charged Grenier with three counts of felony animal cruelty.Her lawyer, James Schmier, said she's in a hospital but expects her to contest the charges.In the yard of her home is a for-sale sign and a sticker on the door warns visitors: "Danger. This structure is declared unsafe for human occupancy or use. It is unlawful for any person to use or occupy this building.""You've got years of cat urine in the floor boards," Wilson said.Kim Alpers, a friend who also has known Grenier through cat shows, said her house has not been condemned. "She has the note on the door because she needs a new furnace," she said.

Microchipping your pet requires no anesthetic. Our veterinarian in Livonia reports that implanting a pet microchip causes no more discomfort than administering a routine vaccination. The chip arrives at our Livonia animal hospital inside a sterile applicator. Our Livonia veterinarian injects it under loose skin, typically between a pet’s shoulder blades.
