As Hurricane Dorian continues to pummel the Bahamas, one woman is rounding up as many stray dogs as she can fit in her home.

A total of 97 dogs were taken indoors.

Chella Phillips operates a rescue called The Voiceless Dogs Of Nassau, Bahamas. Chella is not an official rescue shelter or organization, she is not affiliated to the Humane Society and she doesn't receive any kind of help from the government.

It is just her and her love for the homeless dogs of Nassau.

Phillips posted: "97 dogs are inside my house and 79 of them are inside my master bedroom. 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. 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."

She continued: "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!

 

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."
