the way this has been defined as a 'disease' is loaded with class implications. based on this definition, rich people will never suffer from animal hoarding, unless they are trying to build a world class zoo.

I think it's more about knowing your limits - there are rich people who still don't take good care of their animals, and conversely poorer people who do.
Of course having more money may mean that they have more resources - but I don't think anyone is rich enough to have unlimited resources. The article said it well in saying that anyone with compassion could potentially become an animal hoarder, but there comes a point for everyone when a line has to be drawn - and the people who cross that line become hoarders.
