BAHAMAS HURRICANE DOG RESCUE

  We are thankful for the opportunity to partner with multiple wonderful people and groups to help The Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, Bahamas, run by Chella Phillips, who took 97 dogs into her home during Dorian’s impact on the Bahamas.

With the help of many dedicated individuals and groups, about 30 dogs from Chella are here at Nassau Humane Society in Fernandina Beach, FL, where they will undergo a mandatory minimum 2 week quarantine. Once that 2 weeks is up, our team will work closely with interested adopters to place these island “Potcakes” into forever homes.

  Nassau Humane would like to thank New York-based Guardians of Rescue,  which arranged transport of the dogs to Florida; First Coast No More Homeless Pets, which provided crates used in the transports; and our own caring staff members, including those who drove the NHS-bound dogs from the airport in Fort Pierce to our Adoption Center, arriving around 1 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10.

  If you would like to assist the Nassau Humane Society’s operations and efforts, please click here to make a donation, or donate by mail or in person at 639 Airport Rd., Fernandina Beach, Fl. 32034. Also, we recently took in a large number of dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in the Panhandle, so if you’ve been considering an adoption, this would be a great time to help “clear the kennels.”  Please click here to see our currently available dogs. We hugely appreciate you, our supporters, volunteers and adoptors, and our pet-friendly community, for providing us the resources to make rescues like these possible. Thank you!
