A Bahamas woman who runs a shelter for stray dogs has brought 97 of the animals inside of her own home to protect them from Hurricane Dorian.
Chella Phillips, of Nassau, wrote on Facebook: 97 dogs are inside my house and 79 of them are inside my master bedroom.
It has been insane since lastnight, poop and piss non stop but at least they are respecting my bed and nobody has dared to jump in.
We have barricaded the refuge and nobody is outside, the music is playing in all directions of the house and the AC is blowing for them.
I managed to bring some less fortunate ones and I really appreciate some of you donating for crates.. I really needed it for the scared ones and the sick ones. so Thank you!
We may not get hit as hard as other islands and the saddest part is that after the hurricane leave the Bahamas, some islands will take a long time to recover.. Each island has abundance of homeless dogs, my heart is so broken for the ones without a place to hide a CAT 5 monster and only God can protect them now.
Thank you for thinking of us and praying for us.
Coincidentally, today is the Fourth anniversary since the refuge opened its doors to homeless and abandoned dogs and we have cared for nearly 1,000 of them which we are very proud that we managed to give them hope so they could all be happy at last.
Please pray for the Bahamas!
