As a massive Cat 5 hurricane creeped its way toward Nassau, Bahamas, a kind hearted woman opened up her home to 97 rescue dogs.
Chella Phillips, who has helped save nearly a 1,000 homeless dogs in the Bahamas, wanted to protect the dogs from Hurricane Dorian, so she took the dogs into her home.
While some dogs are in crates, most are free to roam her home as she tries to keep up with their needs. There are 79 dogs in her bedroom, but she says none have “dared” jump on her bed.
At present, she is keeping the dogs in as comfortable environment as she can. She constantly cleans up after them and has the air conditioner running. She did lose power but thankfully her home did not flood. She and the dogs are safe for now.
As a dog rescuer with a huge heart, Chella knows that the dogs in the Bahamas will require lots of help. The need is much greater than what she can accomplish alone.
She wrote on her Facebook page:
"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,"
