Natural calamities such as typhoons are inevitable nowadays. Due to these typhoons, many people are displaced, and the destruction of properties are rampant. Typhoons, though, do not only affect humans but also animals like dogs.
But unlike humans, dogs cannot protect themselves from the destruction of typhoons. Most often, they are victims of storms and are included in the death toll.
There are stories in the past that tackled about pooches who go missing and abandoned after typhoons. This is a sad reality because they could not find shelter after a specific disaster.
This narrative happened just recently when Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas. Aside from the damages to properties, the hurricane also left several dogs without shelter.
But this woman did not let the hurricane dampen her spirit. While she also experienced the wrath of the typhoon, Chella Phillips opened her shelter and rescued 97 pooches.
These dogs are originally housed at the Voiceless Dogs of Nassau. But because of the typhoon, they had to be relocated somewhere else. This is where Phillips come in as she decided to provide a shelter for all 97 dogs.
Phillips is not an owner of any rescue shelter, and she is also not connected with any organizations that deal with dogs. This, though, did not hamper her will to lend a hand.
In a later interview, Phillips mentioned that she did this out of her own volition. She said she wanted to help the pooches amid the hurricane. Since she had the mechanism to help, she gladly did.
Until now, the pooches are housed in Phillips’ home. She makes sure that all the pooches’ needs are met. She even had all pooches vaccinated so that they are all safe from any diseases after the hurricane.
Phillips plans to find homes forever for these pooches. This is why she posted on Facebook and asked for the help of dog-loving individuals to give the 97 homeless pooches their permanent abode.
