Woman takes in 97 dogs during Hurricane Dorian

Woman takes in 97 dogs during Hurricane Dorian”

The thunderheads around the peaceful "eye" - also known as the eye wall - are often the most violent parts of the storm.

She also barricaded her home to keep the animals safe inside, however, Phillips added in a post that she had a "stressful night ... not even 3 pumps could contain the rain from washing us inside and after an hour all 3 pumps reheated and burned down and we have been outside with buckets fighting a losing battle".

According to a Facebook post from Phillips, 79 of the canines were in her master bedroom.

A Nassau woman named Chella Phillips shared photos on Facebook of 97 stray dogs taking over her house while Dorian raged outside.

Phillips rescued the 97 dogs on the fourth anniversary of her refuge, The Voiceless Dogs. Neighbours and strangers donated dog crates, which were helpful for "the scared ones and the sick ones", Phillips wrote.

Phillips said in a Facebook post Monday that her home had flooded, but all 97 dogs were doing well.

"Everyone here gets along and welcome the newcomers with tail wags cause they know they are their brothers and sisters in suffering on the streets", Phillips wrote.

Hurricane Dorian hovered over the Bahamas for almost 48 hours, with torrential rains and wind gusts reaching over 220 mph wreaking havoc on the small island nation. "All services are down, all TVs are fried from the lightning's so no more cartoons for the sick dogs until we can purchase new ones". Her kindness and generosity has not gone unnoticed. She stayed awake all night to dry the house and care for the "terrified" animals.

She ended the post, "Please pray for the Bahamas!" But she wishes she could do more: She's concerned for all the dogs she couldn't take into her home.

As a category 5 storm, I cannot imagine how strong the winds are and she states in the Facebook post below that there is no way any living being could have survived.

We all have heard about the destruction that has come along with Hurricane Dorian.

"The world is behind you and your efforts", wrote another.
