Episode Summary


A fifty-eight-year-old street minister has dealt with a difficult adolescence, having to take special education classes. His struggle with academics continued into his adulthood, and after losing a job three years ago, he has accumulated over 150 animals in his basement. Unfortunately, the animals have made the house incredibly messy and dirty, caused his wife to develop COPD, and come between his relationships with his wife and stepdaughter. A twenty-one-year-old woman has acquired twenty-one dogs after rescuing dogs with her mother, who had her at a young age. She wanted to become a nurse, but she has had to quit her job as a nursing assistant for the dogs, and her mother and stepfather have to support her.
