Man In Cancun, Mexico, Rescues 300 Dogs From A Hurricane By Taking Them All Into His Own Home

A man in Cancun, Mexico, has received praise from dog lovers around the world after he saved 300 dogs from a hurricane by bringing them all into his house.

Ricardo Pimentel runs an animal sanctuary, Tierra de Animales, just outside the city of Cancun where he hosts over 500 animals, many of whom have been abandoned. When he heard that Hurricane Delta was soon to make landfall he began to seriously worry that the current shelters the dogs were kept in would not be able to take the force of such a storm. He then did the only thing he could do, decant 300 dogs straight into his house where he knew they would be safe.

Pimentel told online magazine The Dodo:

"We have two bedrooms, one kitchen and one bathroom available for volunteers who want to come and stay here to help us with all the things that we have to do. We decided to put almost all the dogs inside the house, simply because we don't fully trust in the shelters that we currently have because they aren't hurricane-proof."

He went on:

"We had to bring them in on leash two by two. Some of them are afraid or don't know how to walk on a leash, so we had to carry them to the house, but in the end, it was worth it because they are all safe. They were actually very well-behaved all night. The next morning when the hurricane finished, we had to do a lot of repairs and clean all [the animals'] areas from trees and branches. So they stayed in the house the next day until 5 or 6 p.m. Of course, there was a horrible smell in the house and they broke a few things, but there's nothing to regret. I would do it again one million more times if necessary."

He and his team are now building new storm-proof animal shelters to make sure that when the next storm hits, Mr. Pimentel and his team won't have quite the same clean-up operation, or the need to invest in new rugs!
