A woman was devastated when a boarding kennel in Dublin returned her beloved husky in a ball of tape. According to Dublin Live, Kirsten Kinch’s dog, Nova, was boarded at P&E Boarding Kennels for a short period of time while she traveled to Iceland – when she returned, the dog had died and her body was given back in a huge, black ball of tape.

Kennel staff informed Kinch that Nova had died that morning and that they had found blood coming from her body. She recounted the horror:

“We where completely shocked and beyond devastated to hear this and at first I thought it was some horrible joke considering we had left a healthy dog in to be cared for three days earlier.


“I was then brought in to see my gorgeous dog who had been wrapped in what I can only describe as a ball in a black bag which was covered in masking tape, there was clearly so little care and empathy in the way she had been handled and dealt with since finding her.”

Nova took medication for colitis – the kennel staff claims that the meds were administered correctly. A necropsy confirmed that Nova died from internal bleeding, but the boarding facility has not yet informed Kinch what transpired on Nova’s final days.

Why would anyone at the boarding facility believe that the way Nova was returned was okay? Why was she wrapped in a ball of tape? Rest in peace Nova.

    This makes me sick, I hate to think what I would have done to these people if they brought me my dead dog’s body wrapped like this! I would be sitting in jail I’m sure. I hope they sue these people for all they are worth!
