Yolanda Banks had roughly 40 dogs and cats living in her home at one time. Her family didn't like it, and her house was a mess. She was a prime candidate for intervention, and will be profiled on 'Confessions: Animal Hoarding,' which is back Wednesday nights on Animal Planet. Banks spoke about her experience on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).
Clips showed Banks' family trying to deal with the animals, mostly the cats, and her son saying he wished the animals would just go away. "I had family start passing away and the animals were there to fill the voids," Banks explained. "When you don't have a comfort level, the animals fill those voids."
