Dogs taken to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter from a former veterinarian's home are multiplying.

Animal control officers took 48 dogs from Debra Clopton's Edgewood home last month. The dogs were taken to the animal shelter in Santa Fe.

Since then, two of those dogs have had litters of puppies.

Clopton will not be on the hook to pay for the care of the puppies because they were born at the shelter, shelter officials said.

Shelter officials said they hope to have the puppies available for adoption once they are weaned and ready.

A judge ordered Clopton to pay $900 a day for the care of the dogs taken from her home. If she doesn't pay, the dogs will be handed over to the county.
