Our Disaster Response team is on the ground in the Bahamas, caring for animals in the aftermath of #HurricaneDorian—the most powerful hurricane to make landfall on the islands.⠀
Over 1,000 residents evacuated with no option to bring their pets with them. Our top priority is getting these families back together. We’ve set up a dispatch center on Nassau where we are responding to pleas from families requesting us to check on animals in #Abaco and Grand Bahama.⠀
To report lost, found, or injured animals or if you’re interested in volunteering time, supplies, vessels, planes, please send an email to DorianAnimalRelief@gmail.com or a WhatsApp text to 242-427-7729.⠀
We’re setting up MASH units (temporary shelter and triage center) in hard-hit areas to shelter animals in need, process the inflow of rescue requests, and provide urgent medical treatment.⠀

A few more shots of the storm. It's crazy to think that over 400,000 people lost power. Luckily no one was hurt, but I'm sure the cost of the damages throughout the city is going to be pretty high.
📖 AS YOU READ THIS, there are first responders from #HumaneSocietyInternational on the ground in the Bahamas rescuing animals and reuniting them with their families...🐕 👨👩👦👦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Senior director for animal protection and crisis response, Adam Parascandola, found a sweet dog within the rubble of #HurricaneDorian, starving and in serious condition, after his owner could not get to him. The HSI response team acted fast and transported the dog to a makeshift shelter where food and TLC was provided 💕. Adam shared that the next morning, the pup greeted him with a wagging tail—a stark contrast to his state when he was first rescued! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌈 A positive outcome amidst an overwhelming scene in the #Bahamas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💪🏻Their work will continue in assisting @action4ifaw and other local organizations. Follow along and consider supporting their relief efforts via @hsiglobal page. Drop a “👏🏻” in the comments if you loved this story! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

September 1, 2019 will forever be remembered as the day that #hurricanedorian made landfall in the Abacos and Grand Bahama leaving total devastation in its wake.
We offer our sincere condolences to those who have lost family and friends as a result of this catastrophic natural disaster. We are working tirelessly to help members of the communities that have been affected, some of whom are our colleagues, to pick up the pieces and in some cases, start anew.
The overwhelming outpouring of love and assistance that The Bahamas has received from local and international supporters has served as a beacon of hope to all in these desperate times. We are grateful to everyone, everywhere, for their hard work and strong resolve to help us bounce back and move forward. The radiant Bahamian sun will shine again. #bahamasstrong
