More Than 250 Shelter Pets In The Bahamas Died During Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian destroyed the Bahamas last week and when the storm waters flooded an animal shelter in Freeport, Bahamas, more than 250 animals died.

, we can’t forget the animal lives that were lost in the storm too. When the storm waters flooded an animal shelter in Freeport, Bahamas, the shelter staff did everything they could to save hundreds of animals but as the water rose, there was nothing they could do to transport almost 300 animals to higher ground.

Elizabeth Burrows, the executive director of the Humane Society of Grand Bahamas, knew that the building survived several past floods and thought they could weather the storm again. But as Dorian approached, Bahamians had to flee to government shelters that don’t allow pets, so Burrows and her staff took them in.

Burrows and her staff — like Felicia Telfort, the shelter supervisor — did everything they could to keep the nearly 300 animal crates above water, but once the water was chest high, the women had to take cover themselves and climbed into a manhole that led to the attic.

Sadly, the waters overtook the animals and they lost more than 220 dogs and 50 cats. “We had no idea we would get the flood that we did,” Burrows toldCBS Miami.“I felt devastated,” Burrows added. “We couldn’t have predicted this but I still feel responsible. My heart is broken for the shelter animals that we lost, and I feel so bad for the people who trusted their animals to us. And ultimately we could not protect them.”
