Carla Paredes was traveling with her dog Coco from Nicaragua to the United States after completing a humanitarian aid program that began last January.

To leave the country and enter the United States, the animal must have certain documents in order, such as its vaccination certificate, anti-rabies injection, a Nicaraguan Institute for Agricultural Protection and Health certification (IPSA), a form from the Center for Exports (CETREX) and a certificate with the owner’s personal owner information

Coco has been a part of Carla’s life since she was three months old, when her mother gave her a gift. Since then he had been together and was of vital help when the woman became ill with the coronavirus.

“I was sick and I didn’t want to go to the hospital. I denied that I was going to die at home because I needed a ventilator. Coco was with me all the time, she never left me. She was a medical assistant. I survived the coronavirus and I slept for almost eight months in a chair so that she could breathe, losing her lungs on the right,” he recalled.
