Suburban Lake Worth man found guilty of cruelty to animals

— A jury Wednesday found a suburban Lake Worth man guilty of cruelty to animals.

Scott Kipp, one time owner of Kipp's K9s on the 2100 block of Second Avenue North, was arrested in 2009 after Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies and members of Animal Care and Control found a puppy mill with animals in deplorable conditions.

Some dogs were laying in a puddle of what looked like urine and some puppies were unresponsive when officers touched them, according to a sheriff's office report. Many of the dogs did not seem used to human touch and would quiver and drop to the ground when officers touched them.

Animal Care and Control seized 23 of Kipp's dogs..." More
