When Chella Phillips of the rescue, The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas, took 97 dogs into her home to protect them from hurricane Dorian, she had no idea what the future would hold. Or, how many hearts she would touch with her story.
Shared here and widely on social media, dog lovers everywhere longed to reach out and somehow help her and the animals she protected from rising flood waters and the subsequent loss of power.
Generous donations of $100,000 poured into her rescue, which will help her move to a new location.
She told CBS news, “I am so grateful so many people reached out with donations. Now it’s possible for me to move to another location.”
Along with the much needed donations, she also captured the attention of rescuers who want to help her find homes for the dogs.
“Thank you for asking about us. That sent people in our direction to help us….Now rescuers are wanting to take my homeless and help them. God bless you all,” she said.
