Thousand Hills Pet Resort Fire Update

A local pet resort is still healing Wednesday after the loss of seven animals.
On Monday, an early morning fire broke out at the Thousand Hills Pet Resort on the outskirts of San Luis Obispo leaving seven dogs dead.
According to Cal Fire, it burned three small overnight boarding kennels.

By mid-morning Monday, staff members had reached all but one of the families whose dogs died. All were traveling at the time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The cause of the fire has not been determined yet, but initial investigations point to electrical heating pads inside the kennels.

Owner Jack Gould says they've had electrictions out all week making sure everything is working properly.
He says they are making immediate changes to the resort after the accident.
One major change will be an advanced heat detection system that will be installed into the kennels next Wednesday.
They've also removed all the old heating pads and will replace those with a new ultra safe heating pad.

"Our staff and our people love everyone of these animals," Guild said holding back tears. "We just want to support the trust that people put in us and say we're so deeply sorry."
