A family from Tucson, Arizona, say they made the biggest mistake of their lives after leaving their dog at Buhrke’s Pet Resort. They released their two healthy dogs thinking they would help, but the family was only able to bring home one of them alive.
The family is accusing the pet resort of neglecting the dog, but the resort’s owner refuses to admit he did anything wrong. Now, dog lovers are supporting the family to ensure that no more dogs tragically die at this property.
Horror story about pet resort
Cesar and Carla Nava have had their German Shepherd/Lab dog mix named Ella since she was a puppy. Their son grew up with a 7-year-old dog, and she is Carla’s emotional support dog. When Cesar and Carla dropped off Ella and their other dog at Buhrke’s Pet Resort, they thought their furry friends would be safe, but they were wrong.
When Cesar returned from a trip to pick up the dogs, he said that everything seemed fine at first. He paid for the services, but then; The staff couldn’t find the family dogs, so Cesar’s heart sank.
Cesar said: ‘I paid for my dogs’ visit and I went to wait for them to come back with my animals but they said he couldn’t find them. “So I went back there on my own to find my dogs. I found one of my German Shepherds and my other dog, my German Shepherd-Lab Mix. I saw her dead on the ground and they didn’t even see her. They don’t know that she’s still back there.”
Looks like the dogs haven’t been moved since they were dropped. Cesar had requested that they be kept together in a large cage, but they were in separate cages. Ella has no food, water, or portable A/C in her crib, and the water dish looks like it’s been dry for a while. Cesar said she was dead and felt as hard as a rock.
Bring justice to Ella!
The family rushed their dead dog to the vet for an autopsy, and they are waiting for the results. Meanwhile, the pet resort didn’t do anything to help or comfort Navas. The owner seemed to insist that he and his staff did nothing wrong.
Carla wrote on Facebook: ‘It’s horrible to expect a tail to wag at you in front of the crib but find your dead best friend lying there instead. “First, I left the owner with a review and he replied with a couple of things along the lines of do not blame him and that we “refused” to examine. autopsy but it was funny because it was the first thing we asked for. “
Marana Animal Control is currently investigating the situation, but this is not the first case the business has been accused of. According to online reviews, many people rated it as bad for dirty kennels and sick/malnourished dogs, even before Ella passed away. In all situations, the owner seems to make excuses instead of apologizing and improving.
While the family awaits the results of the autopsy, they are mourning the loss of their furry friend. Ella had been there to support them for many years, and they never expected to lose her so suddenly.
Rest in peace, Ella. You will soon get the justice you deserve.
