The Decalartion states, "one cat or dog...". The previous Management Company and Board of Directors did not enforce this regulation and now the new Board wants three (3) homeowners who have two cats and two dogs, respectively to eliminate one of their two pets which have become a "family" member. Any suggestions on how to handle this "situation" as a new Management Representative?

check if your by-laws have anything on grandfathering. If so, use it.

If not, then you probably need to get the board to amend the CC&R's.

Your final option is to check for loopholes: for one, does it define pets as dogs and cats only? If so, then get a horse, a pig, a mule, etc. If it mentions "ownership", then perhaps you should become a foster parent to a rescued animal, then you don't own it, you are merely keeping it until it is adopted... and it may never be adopted.
