GLENCOE, Ill. -- Thirty-seven dogs were rescued Saturday from a damaged home in Glencoe, Ill.

Authorities say the conditions inside were so bad that many of the dogs were covered in feces.

There is word yet on possible charges for the 65-year-old woman who lived at the house. Eight of the dogs were taken to Preiser Animal Hospital in Northbrook, Ill. But the majority of them remain at Glencoe Animal Hospital.

Staff have been tending to the worst cases first, checking them out, cleaning them up and shaving fur that's matted with feces.

Two of the dogs have already been transferred to Tails of Hope in Highland Park, where they will go up for adoption.

The rest of the dogs will be ready for adoption within the next few weeks.
