One woman fit 97 dogs inside her house to save them from Hurricane Dorian

Chella Phillips is living in a house with about a 100 unexpected guests who can’t stop pooping or peeing insider the house, but at least they’re safe from Hurricane Dorian.

Her guests are respecting her bed but every other inch of space in Phillips’ home in the Bahamas is filled with dogs.

Phillips took 97 dogs into her home, barricaded the refuge and with music blaring and the AC blowing on the canines, they rode out the destructive Hurricane Dorian.

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.

Phillips, who runs a refuge for animals, rounded up the dogs from the streets. All the dogs were getting along and were welcoming “the newcomers with tail wags,” and appealed for people to volunteer to adopt the rescues once the storm passed.

The island has more than 65,000 homeless dogs who roam the streets abused, hungry, and sick.

“97 is nothing. It’s like a drop from this pouring rain,” Phillips said.

Phillips manages the refuge The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, BahamasĀ opened its doors to homeless and abandoned dogs. Phillips and her brother have cared for nearly 1,000 dogs.

A fundraiser for the woman’s shelter quickly topped $100,000 and is still growing.

But she warns of fakes.

“Please be careful with people opening fundraisers telling they are doing it on my behalf,” she posted on Facebook. “I have not authorized anyone of such a thing, we only have the regular fundraiser running. My page administrator and myself caught already some today and when we confronted them they ran away.”

And some confusion about what she’s trying to do.
