What is the height of mercy, sensitivity, care, and responsibility? Well, different people may have different answers but in my opinion, this wonderful lady named Chella Phillips has all the said qualities in abundance and no one can match her kindness.
What did she do?
She provided shelter to 97 dogs, yes, 97 dogs in her home during Hurricane Dorian which was a category 2 storm and affected millions of people in the United States, as well as, Bahamas and Caribbean.
On September 2, Chella Phillips posted on her Facebook timeline that she had provided shelter to 97 dogs in her home and 79 of these dogs are in her master bedroom. She further said that the dogs respected her and her bed, and none of them jumped in her bed. Although they kept pooping and pissing, still, Chella tried to comfort them as much as she could do.
Given below is the exact shot of Chella’s Facebook post.
Further, Chella played music and Air Conditioner was turned-on for the poor dogs which were not worried any more after finding their dream lady.
Chella Phillips lives in Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. As per the reports, hundreds of dogs and cats were lost or died in the Bahamas during the Hurricane Dorian. So, this act of kindness by this wonderful lady cannot be ignored easily.
