More details to this question:
society to take them away or pay up to 1000 fine, I assume that if we dont pay they will put a lien on the property. my question is can they do more then that ? my daughters is devastated. This community is packed with people with 3 and 4 animals, which is not my problem. My daughter kept the kittens after the kittens mother got killed. My daughter says that she doesn't want to live anymore and she is not eating and doesn't want to go to school. Please help me with this issue. They told us that on top of the fine that we couldn't use the swimming pool, the gym and that the sticker for the automatic gate entrance will be cancelled . Please guide me

You won't find reliable "guidance" in a legal sense in an internet blurb. You will have to actually retain a lawyer for that purpose. YOU will start with having to decide whether your daughters well being and the kittens are worth the $1,000.00 payment, whcih BTW will be far cheaper than any legal fees you'll spend. Other than being histrionic - if your daughter is making the comments you reference you will need to seek IMMEDIATE psychological counseling as she obviously has some deep seated issues that may well extend well beyond the issues with the kittens regardless of how this all plays out. If she won't  go, then you may have to consider Baker Acting her for her own safety. If you just ignore the HOA they will allow the fines to accummulate and ultimate foreclose on the property.

Animal Law
Whether you own cats, dogs and other pets; breed animals for show and sale; raise livestock, or hunt wild animals, a host of federal, state and local laws govern animals and their welfare. Animal laws also intersect with our day-to-day lives: Can a landlord refuse to rent to you if you own a pet? Can service animals accompany their owners into places where pets aren't traditionally welcome? What happens to the beloved family pet when a couple gets divorced? Whether you're an animal advocate, have been accused of animal cruelty, have a pet that's died as a result of veterinary malpractice or are concerned about the welfare of animals at a local zoo or circus, you need the help of an experienced animal law attorney.
