Nassau Humane Society takes in 30 Bahamian rescue dogs in wake of Hurricane Dorian

NCHS says all the dogs seem friendly and are just a bit tired from their travels.

The Nassau County Humane Society (NCHS) is helping house over two dozen dogs from the Bahamas that were left homeless in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

NCHS transported 30 Bahamian rescue dogs from the Fort Pierce airport to their facility, arriving early on Tuesday morning.

The dogs will be in quarantine for about two weeks to make sure they're healthy. NCHS says all of the dogs seem friendly and are only a bit weary from their travels.

"We are so thankful to you, our supporters, and our pet-friendly community, for providing us the resources to help with rescues like this," the Nassau Humane Society posted on Facebook. "Please stay tuned for updates!"

The Humane Society of Grand Bahama says hundreds of dogs and cats died when storm surge and massive rainfall flooded the shelter.

Some of the animals reportedly were left behind by families that had evacuated or were in shelters that wouldn't allow pets.
