Disembarking Dogs




There was a light rain when almost two dozen dogs landed at Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Thursday, September 12. They were saved from the ravages of Hurricane Dorian. Met by ambassadors from Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and Jake’s Rescue Ranch in Nassau County, some of the pups will also end up at Kent Animal Shelter in Calverton. Chella Phillips sheltered 97 dogs in her home on the island of Nassau, Bahamas, during Hurricane Dorian. With help from the Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team, and others, these pups will be sheltered until they can find new furever homes.
