WARREN COUNTY, Iowa — The woman accused of neglecting several dogs in Warren County was in court Monday morning.

Lindsey Morrow faces numerous charges including animal torture, fraudulent practice, and animal neglect. That’s after 19 dogs were rescued from properties in Warren County in early February.

Online records show she collected thousands of dollars to care for the dog, which were all found malnourished and caged in filthy conditions.

During proceedings Monday, Morrow’s pre-trial hearing was set for April 17th.

Last month, a judge placed the animals in the custody of Warren County, which then transferred ownership to the Animal Rescue League. Several of the dogs have already been adopted.
