Muscatine, IOWA – According to the Muscatine County Sheriff’s Office, the 46-year-old woman was charged on Wednesday.

Her name is Stephanie Harrison and she is now charged with one count each of animal neglect causing serious injury, animal neglect causing injury and animal neglect.

In January, deputies launched an investigation after receiving a complaint from It Takes A Village Animal Rescue and Resources in Muscatine.

The responding deputies reportedly found 28 dogs and one cat inside the camper.

The camper was confirmed to be uninhabitable due to the amount of feces and subsequent odor.

County judge ordered the sheriff’s department to release 27 of the dogs and the cat to It Takes a Village.

One dog will be allowed to return to Harrison based on agreed-upon stipulations that include the dog being spayed and payment of associated costs.
