SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — One of the dozens of dogs taken from the Edgewood home of a former veterinarian has given birth to 10 puppies.
Two of the other dogs also being held at a Santa Fe animal shelter have had pups and another is ready to deliver.
KRQE-TV (http://bit.ly/107vAfW ) reports that the shelter now is caring for nearly 80 dogs and pups.
The original group of 48 dogs had been removed from Debra Clopton’s home in April. Authorities say she kept the dogs in unsanitary conditions. She’s facing animal cruelty charges.
Her attorney has said the charges are unwarranted and that Clopton had no intent to harm any of the animals.
The shelter says the newborn pups eventually will be put up for adoption.
