A fire broke out early Friday morning at a Michigan kennel, and is believed to have killed all 30 dogs inside, many of which were placed at the facility while their families went away on spring vacation.
Janet Rehfus, of Storm's Ahead Kennels in Nunica, tells NPR that the 30 dogs inside were boarder dogs alongside her own personal dogs, and she is devastated by the loss.
"The heartbreak we feel for the families is immeasurable," she wrote in an email. "We treasure each dog that stays with us."
Rehfus said she has spent the day contacting families individually.
