NASSAU, Bahamas — A woman in Nassau, Bahamas opened her home to 97 rescue dogs to help protect them from the Hurricane Dorian.

Chella Phillips, who has helped save nearly 1,000 homeless and abandoned dogs in the Bahamas in the last four years, wrote this on her Facebook page Sunday that the experience has been "insane."

She says that all the dogs are indoors, the air conditioning is on. She says that while 79 dogs are staying in her bedroom, none have "dared" to jump on her bed.

"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," Phillips wrote.

In a phone interview, Phillips said she lost power and had a little water come into her home, but she and the dogs are OK.
