Animal lovers from around the country find themselves foster parents to abused and abandoned baby animals.

Reality shows have recently brought a lot of attention to hoarding, and while that condition can be horrible for those living with it, there is an even more heartbreaking situation.

It is called animal hoarding, and Dr. Nancy Bradley with the Arizona Humane Society , says it starts with people who believe they are doing something good. "They love these animals, they literally love them to death. They love to them to death."

And Dr. Bradley says she sees it, again and again, dozens and dozens of animals brought in from hoarding situations, and she says, more often than not, those animals cannot be saved.
