So many people are in need….but lets not forget about all the animals too!
Hurricane Dorian has a done a number on the people in the Bahamas…the pictures and videos are so sad.
So many people are stepping up to do their part and help. We can’t forget about the animals.
The Suncoast Animal League is collecting donations for people and animals as they plan a rescue mission to get shelter animals out of the Bahamas.
I rescued my dog Louie from Suncoast, so they have a special place in my heart and they are a great local group to work with.
Six staff members stayed behind to take care of the 200 animals at the Humane Society of Grand Bahama. But hours into the storm, a terrifying message was posted to Facebook pleading for help for the six people at the shelter where the water was neck high. I can’t even imagine what that was like…and thankfully, those six workers were rescued and miraculously more than 120 animals survived.
They’re flying a plane over as soon as the runways are cleared. There are about 6 animal shelters on the island and they plan on bringing them all to the United States…. so there will be lots of puppies who will need their forever homes.
Right now, they’re collecting donations at the Suncoast Animal League Thrift store in Palm Harbor for the animals they rescue and supplies for the people in the Bahamas.
