If the conditions are that horrendous, why not go out there and *help* them. Pick up a shovel, broom, bleach water, whatever needs to be done. Help them get volunteers, how many volunteers do they have?
For God's sake don't involve PETA. They "rescue" animals only to kill them. Don't label people as hoarders. It is a nasty label and accomplishes nothing. If they are allowing you to remove animals from there by definition they are not hoarders since hoarders will not let go of any of their animals.
