Superyacht Laurel rescues 50 dogs from the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian

Following on from Hurricane Dorian, one of the most devastating storms to ever strike the Bahamas, superyacht Laurel has rescued 50 dogs who have been abandoned or lost in the cyclone.

The 73-metre (240-foot) motor yacht, built by US shipyard Delta Marine, has opened its tender garage door and taken in the rescue dogs to keep them safe.

Posting photographs of the dogs on Facebook, Shani Davies, photographer, commented, “[These dogs] have been through so much after Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas, and as you would imagine, we are all taking every opportunity to love on them as much as possible.

"When you hear 'rescue' or 'stray', it's sometimes hard to picture them as loving, loyal pets - but TRUST me these dogs are the goodest (sic) boys and girls, we all wish we could adopt all of them.

"A lot of work and paperwork went into this - so grateful to everyone mostly [Captain] Roy Stephanie & Wikus Botes and our incredible owner for offering his crew and yacht to help. If anyone reading this is interested in adopting them - they are going straight to an incredible rescue ranch Big Dog Ranch Rescue."

The dogs have now been safely moved to the rescue ranch, and the Laurel yacht crew are asking for donations to help the various dogs who require surgery.

Big Dog Ranch Rescue aims to shelter and care for homeless dogs, of all breeds and ages, and find them loving homes.
