Former Veterinarian Convicted for Animal Hoarding

Debra Clopton, a veterinarian, had her license revoked back in 2011 after being proven guilty of animal hoarding and cruelty.

She was first convicted after her neighbors sent a complaint to the sheriff’s office stating that there are too many dogs barking and keeping them awake in the night. A month-long investigation was then set out and 20 dogs were initially retrieved, leading to the repossession of Clopton’s house and her license revoked.

According to Santa Fe County Sheriff’s William Pacheco, this was the largest case of animal cruelty he’s seen in his entire career. The jury has indicted Clopton with 48 counts of cruelty to animals as well as possession of dangerous drugs and continual practice of veterinary medicine without her license.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
