In times of need, humans are showing their kindness. And what a big, kind heart this woman has.

Chella Philips, a dog lover in Nassau, Bahamas, decided to help as many dogs as she can, after the devastating Hurricane Dorian stroke the region. Chella who’s manager of the Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas opened her doors and sheltered 97 dogs from the category five storm’s furry.

In a now viral post, the kind-hearted woman shared photos with her home in New Providence, full of abandoned dogs. In the last four years, Shella rescued around 1,000 dog in Bahamas.

“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.

“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.
[Coincidentally], 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,” she wrote in a Facebook post.

“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,” Shella said.
