Time is up for a former veterinarian accused of animal cruelty to pay up or surrender her dogs.

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter is caring for 45 dogs that were taken from Debra Clopton’s home near Edgewood last month.

A judge ordered her to pay $900 a day to the shelter for their care.

She had until 5 p.m. Friday to pay the money or turn the dogs over to the shelter.
