The city of West Park has levied fines totaling $50,000 for operating a kennel in a residential neighborhood.

The Broward Sheriff's Office had abuse and neglect investigators at the house several times.

Yohai said he has found homes for most of the dogs, keeping only three.

BSO said Yohai is now in compliance as far as the dogs go, but he still needs to clean up his property.
