Woman Brings 97 Rescue Dogs Into Her House To Protect Them From Hurricane Dorian

Chella Phillips, a manager for "The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas", posted several pictures of the pups in need on her Facebook page.

There are many who feed and provide for the strays but how far do you think those people would go just to protect them from harm's way? While most do their part and provide the basic items for their canine friends, there's someone who went beyond and above to keep these strays safe. In a world filled with animal abusers arose a Bahama resident who provided shelter to almost 100 stray dogs inside her home, in order to protect them from the turbulent Hurricane Dorian, according to reports.


Working as a manager for "The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas", Chella Phillips is used to pairing animals with their respective rescue and adoption organizations all around the United States, reports Fox 13 News . However, when the powerful winds of the Hurricane Dorian made its way towards the island, Phillips took it upon herself to care for 97 rescue dogs. Sharing numerous pictures of the incident on Facebook, she wrote On Sunday: 97 dogs are inside my house and 79 of them are inside my master bedroom. Explaining the situation she continued: It has been insane since last night, poop and piss non stop but at least they are respecting my bed and nobody has dared to jump in.


Phillip then mentioned how she was trying her best to keep all the pups as comfortable as she could. 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, read her post. Thanking everyone who provided her with spare crates, she wrote: 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!


She then went on to pray for everyone who was affected by the storm. 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, it continued reading. 


Pleading others for donations which would be used to care for unfortunate pooches, Phillips shared how she has been rescuing dogs for four years now and had saved about 1000 of homeless dogs. The post read: Coincidently, 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! if you wish to help financially, our paypal is: [email protected]


The dogs get vetted, vaccinated and from there they come to live at my refuge until I am able to find a rescue willing to help me with them in the States, reads it's Facebook page. "Countless homeless dogs have left the streets of Nassau and they are now enjoying life being loved and cared [for] by their families." The post was made after Dorian,  now a Category 4 storm hit the area causing an island-wide blackout where Phillip's organization is situated. According to the New York Post, during a phone call with news station WFTS, she informed how she had lost power and had water in her homes, however, the dogs were safe!


After learning about the story several Twitter users shared their similar approach when it comes to these little pooches. @somethi79963647 wrote: My kids, my dogs, anything after that does not matter. I would quite literally throw my possessions out of my vehicle if it meant saving the life of an animal. Fuck that 65” tv. I can buy another. Another @murfster86 appreciatively wrote: What a woman! Legend!
