A woman from the Bahamas took it upon herself to transform her house into a shelter for nearly 100 dogs as Hurricane Dorian brought heavy rain and strong winds to the island.

The New York Post reported Monday that Chella Phillips took care of 97 dogs as the whole island prepared to face Hurricane Dorian. The canines' caretaker is also the name behind The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas, a standalone effort of Phillips that opened her heart – and her home – to stray dogs for the past 11 years.

On her Facebook account, Phillips said that 97 dogs are inside her house and 79 of them are in the master bedroom.

“It has been insane since lastnight, poop and piss non stop but at least they are respecting my bed and nobody has dared to jump in,” Phillips' post continued.

As an added security to shield them from Hurricane Dorian, Phillips added that “we have barricaded the refuge” and made sure no dogs were left outside.

“The music is playing in all directions of the house and the AC is blowing for them,” she said.

Although Phillips admitted that the Bahamas won't get his as much as the other islands, her heart went out to the “abundance of homeless dogs” that, without shelter, would have face the wrath of Hurricane Dorian by themselves.

“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 also thanked those who donated several crates so that she can use it for dogs who were scared and sick.

Coincidentally, Phillips' Monday post also marked the fourth anniversary of The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas. The refuge became the haven of nearly 1,000 homeless and abandoned dogs and, through the continuous effort of their guardian angel, gave them hope and happiness.

One source was able to talk to Phillips over the phone during the height of the hurricane. She said that she had “lost power and had a little water come into her home.” Other than that, she and the dogs that she rescued are okay.

Phillips is asking for donations, or a “regular monthly fundraiser” to help The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas in their thrust to take care of these unfortunate animals.
