The 54-year-old man, who was not present when police officers visited Sunday afternoon, was found to have five dogs on his property, which appeared to be English Mastiffs, said Sgt. spokesman J.R. Langer.
One of the animals was loose and the other four were observed in kennels, Langer said.
A report indicating the observations of the animal services officers and the patrol officer were sent to Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Code Compliance, Langer added, explaining police do not set fines.
San Jose Animal Services has been to the property before pertaining to similar complaints, Langer noted.
Town code allows five total pets per household, but doesn't allow more than one un-spayed female cat per house.
Also no person shall keep or maintain more than three cats over 4 months of age, according to town code.
There are exceptions to this rule for licensed kennel operators and veterinarians.
No person shall allow the parturition and rearing of more than one litter of dogs or cats in any one calendar year from females owned by property owners or maintained on their premises without a valid permit from the town manager for a private kennel, commercial kennel, or animal shelter, the code further states.
