The Larimer County District Attorney's office says Jennifer Wood appeared in district court this morning in Colorado.
Officers arrested Wood March 24 at a residence in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado on two counts of being a fugitive from justice. Larimer County sheriff's deputies took her into custody without incident.
Wood spent two nights in jail and was later released after posting $10,000 bond.
Wood did not have an attorney at her initial appearance this morning. The judge set a hearing for April 12th at 8:30 a.m. for her to appear on the charges she's facing there.
In Iowa, Wood has been charged with 35 counts of animal abuse and two counts of unhealthy and unsanitary conditions after officials seized 32 dogs, two cats and a parrot from her home at 308 30th St. Dr. SE on Feb. 17.
A dead dog and dead cat also were found in bags in her garage, authorities said.
