Park Ridge woman arrested on charges of animal cruelty
A Park Ridge woman has been arrested for animal neglect, stemming from the discovery of 88 live animals in a home she owned in Woodstock last month, authorities said Wednesday.
Virginia Dinucci, 54, of the 1700 block of Pavilion Way, was changed with three counts of cruel treatment and 12 counts of neglect of owner's duties.
A McHenry County spokeswoman said Dinucci turned herself in Tuesday. She has since posted a $1,000 bond.
On Oct. 29, McHenry County sheriff's investigators and animal control officers removed 19 dogs, 11 cats, three rabbits, 55 birds and three dead animals from a home owned by Dinucci on the 8600 block of Bull Run Trail in Woodstock.
The animals, which have been evaluated and given medical attention, are available for adoption at the McHenry County Animal Control and Adoption Center. Many of the birds have been placed in bird sanctuaries.
Anyone who needs help caring for pets is encouraged to contact the McHenry County Animal Control office or local pet adoption centers.
