Pat Gorecki and her sister, Karen Brownfield, are accused of animal cruelty. However, no charges have been filed.
Their dogs were seized in what investigators described as deplorable conditions at a trailer park in St. Anne, Ill. in Kankakee County.
The women insist they are dog breeders and that they are not running a puppy mill.
The judge extended a temporary injunction and restraining order Friday against the south suburban Humane Society of Chicago Heights.
Another hearing on the issue will be held April 9.
