It has been a few days since we were last able to post. We continue to grieve and are so grateful and thankful for all the support everyone has shown us.
Our thoughts and prayers go to the ones who lost their beloved pets, the dog loving community and the rescue organizations who have all been affected.
The events of the night replay in our minds like a broken record. All final security checks were completed by 11:30pm and everything was in order as usual. When we were alerted, we saw smoke only coming from one of the buildings and no fire was seen at that stage. The room was full of smoke when we entered and there was no barking or sound coming from them as all of us on the premises attempted to evacuate and rescue as many pets as possible.
Beloved pets including boarding dogs, rescues, and personal pets lost their lives that night and many others were safely evacuated.
10 years have passed since we first opened a center in Oman for dog training and pet boarding with a mission to enrich lives and ensure the safety and comfort of our pet guests. They are family to us. In this time none had any major incident or accident. The toll on us and on you has been tremendous.
We plan to place a memorial stone to remember our loved ones and will provide more details once this has been completed.
Many are still asking for details about the night. We are closely working with the concerned authorities to expedite the process. We will share details once we receive the report. Until then, CJK9 will remain closed until further notice.
