Crumlin kennels apologise over death of dog after owner’s post goes viral

by Rachel Darcy

The owner of a boarding kennels in Crumlin has apologised to a dog owner, after her dog died in their care in late 2018.

A post from Kirsten Kinch went viral last week, saying that she had left her beloved husky, Nova, into P&E Kennels in Crumlin in December 2018.

The dog was healthy when they left her into the kennels; however, when she returned from a short trip a few days later, the kennel informed her that Nova had passed away.

She wrote: “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.”

Following Kirsten’s post going viral, Paddy Cullen, who owns P&E Kennels, made an official statement on the company’s website, apologising to her.

“On behalf of P&E Boarding Kennels, I wish to offer a sincere personal apology to Kirsten Kinch, the owner of Nova, for the grief she has experienced as a result of Nova’s passing in our care.

“We are now doing everything in our power to make sure that this never happens again.”
