SHARE Woman charged after officials remove 35 dogs from Glencoe home

A woman is facing six misdemeanor charges after public safety officers removed 35 dogs from her north suburban home last week.

Jeanne Harper, of the 800 block of Greenwood Avenue in Glencoe, was charged with three counts related to her duties as the dogs’ owner. Three additional counts are for her “cruel treatment to companion animals,” the Glencoe Department of Public Safety said in a statement.

On May 13, officers responding to a well-being check at Harper’s home found 35 dogs, an excess of the maximum allowed under city laws, the department said. The conditions in the home prompted officers to work with the town’s health inspector, building and zoning officials and animal control staff from north suburban Northbrook.

Harper, whose age wasn’t released, voluntarily gave up ownership of the dogs to an adoption center, the department said.

The dogs were placed at two local veterinary clinics for examination and evaluation. “Some” were still being treated on Monday, the department said.
