In a feat of kindheartedness, a woman saved a bunch of stray dogs from Hurricane Dorian as it hit the Bahamas. The good Samaritan is Chella Phillips, who runs The Voiceless Dogs Of Nassau, Bahamas nonprofit that pairs local stray dogs with rescue agencies in the US and regularly dishes out food and medicines to stray animals. Phillips saved 97 dogs from peril as she took them into her Nassau home, The Huffington Post detailed:
Phillips told ABC News it was “either leave the dogs on the street to fend for themselves...or do something about it.”
“I just want these dogs to be safe,” she said. “I could care less about the dog poop and pee in my house.”
She did not immediately return HuffPost’s request for further information.
But in a second post on Monday, Phillips wrote, “we are alright after a stressful night.”
“All services are down, all TVs are fried from the lightnings so no more cartoons for the sick dogs until we can purchase new ones,” she wrote.
She added: “I don’t see how any dogs or any living being could have survived outside. My heart goes out to them. Thank you for the outpouring support and heartfelt prayers.”
