SANTA FE (KRQE) - Nearly three dozen dogs taken from the home of a former veterinarian are ready for adoption in Santa Fe.
The dogs were released to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter Wednesday days after the owner, Debra Clopton , relinquished her rights to the majority of the animals.
Clopton is facing animal cruelty charges and has been ordered to pay the shelter for the dogs' care. So far has come up with just a fraction of the bill.
The shelter director says some of the animals are timid and will require a patient family.
Santa Fe police are working on a new way to put a stop to busy burglars. Instead of throwing them in jail they want to put them rehab.
A winter storm warning has been issued for Albuquerque and surrounding areas through 11 p.m. Thursday.
Tempers flared Wednesday night at the Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education meeting as the firestorm over teacher evaluations and student testing continues.
An Albuquerque man says an emergency vet clinic turned away his dying dog because he didn't have enough cash in his pocket to pay to save him. The dog later died.
Closing arguments wrapped up Wednesday in the final sentencing phase of John McCluskey's federal murder trial. The same jury that convicted him of killing an Oklahoma couple, must now decide whether McCluskey should face the death penalty.
