A man in La Calera, Colombia is currently experiencing the worst time of his life. Camilo Jaramillo Montenegro, the owner of Kiara – an eight-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog – has been overcome with sadness and desperation for almost six months since his beloved pet went missing in the forest while on a walk with her caretakers from Mashi daycare. Kiara’s story has touched the hearts of many; a dog that was adored by her owner, loved by her canine friends, and known throughout the community. She was an integral part of Camilo’s family, and her loss has been devastating to him.
On the day Kiara went missing, two caretakers from the Mashi daycare took ten dogs, including Kiara, for a walk in the nearby forest of La Calera. However, they returned to the daycare without Kiara, claiming that she had gotten lost. Thus began Camilo’s tireless search for his beloved dog. Firefighters, rescuers, neighbors, and activists all joined in the search, covering many areas around La Calera, but Kiara was never found.
Camilo initiated various campaigns to find his beloved dog, even offering a substantial reward to anyone who could find her. Unfortunately, all the efforts were in vain. For months, Camilo has lived with the anguish and uncertainty of not knowing what happened to his pet dog, and the daycare owners never took responsibility for their mistake.
Despite his suffering, Camilo decided to take action to prevent anyone else from experiencing what he is going through. He gathered over 25,000 signatures to approve a law that mandates animal daycare centers to meet minimum requirements. Camilo does not seek to sue anyone or receive monetary compensation; he only wants to recover his dog.
Since Kiara’s disappearance, Camilo has not stopped searching for her. He has utilized all available tools, from social media to flyers and posters. He has also talked to neighbors and friends and even hired people to help him in his quest. Despite his efforts, however, Kiara remains missing.
Throughout these months of searching, Camilo has received many donations that were sent to shelters, as well as sterilization campaigns to honor Kiara. However, Camilo wants to see his pet again, he wants to hug her and feel her love once more.
Kiara’s story serves as a wake-up call for all pet owners and those who offer animal care services. It is important to remember that animals are living beings and deserve to be treated with respect and care. Animal daycare centers have a great responsibility not only to the pet owners but also to the animals themselves.
Dog daycare centers are places designed to provide care and attention to these animals while their owners are away on trips or busy with work tasks. Their main function is to provide a safe, comfortable, and stimulating environment for dogs, which may include activities such as games, walks, and socialization with other dogs.
The responsible individuals in a dog daycare center must work with great responsibility, making sure that the dogs are supervised at all times and have access to clean water and nutritious food. They must also monitor each dog’s health status and behavior to prevent any health problems or conflicts between dogs.
Taking your dogs to a subpar daycare can put them at unnecessary risks. If the dogs are not properly supervised, they may get hurt or sick, or worse, escape. Therefore, it’s important for dog owners to carefully choose a reputable daycare that will provide the necessary care and attention to their beloved pets.
