Police find 52 dogs in Pleasant Prairie home


Pleasant Prairie -Police found 52 dogs living in deplorable conditions in a Pleasant Prairie home.

They were called after they received a complaint about numerous dogs in the residence in the 800 block of 120th Avenue.

Police said they needed protective suits to conduct a search of the home.

The dogs were removed from the residence and taken to Safe Harbor Humane Society for care, evaluations and safe keeping.

The 66-year-old owner was arrested and is being held at the Kenosha County Jail.

Chandra Riberich, who is executive director of the Safe Harbor Humane Society, told WISN 12 News they hope that once the case is closed they will be able to put the dogs up for adoption.

In the meantime, the agency needs help with supplies for all the dogs. If anyone would like to make a donation, they can visit www.safeharborhumanesociety.org.
