How Many Is Too Many?

Produced by
Rachel Raney

HOW MANY IS TOO MANY?

Jen Blood met a new guy and they had a lot in common, including a love of animals. Over the next year and a half, Jen discovered that her boyfriend was actually an animal hoarder. They were living in an abandoned elementary school in rural Kentucky, struggling to care for dozens of animals. Jen tells Dick Gordon about her growing realization that she’d become an unwitting participant in an animal hoarding operation, and what made her finally leave the situation.
