Man Shelters 300 Dogs In His Home From Hurricane In Mexico

Man Shelters 300 Dogs In His Home From Hurricane In Mexico

An animal-lover has been praised after he sheltered 300 stray dogs in his home to protect them from hurricane Delta in Mexico:

The big-hearted LAD, Ricardo Pimentel Cordero, lives in the city of Cancun, in the southeastern Mexican state of Quintana Roo.

He shared various videos of his house full of stray dogs that were taken from the kennel he runs during a violent storm on 7 October.

Another video shows him filming some of the dogs inside transport kennels, explaining: "Here we are, all peaceful. They are all really well behaved, they are saving their own positions so nobody takes their space.

"Outside it is raining lightly, from what I have heard tomorrow the storm will come full force, if anybody has any updates please let me know."

The video, shared on Facebook, attracted over 100,000 views and over 900 admiring comments from social media users. Many have also donated to cover food expenses.

Cordero posted on social media: "We have already started the preparation work here in Tierra de Animales, to receive the hurricane such as cutting branches, securing things that can blow up, walling up windows and doors, filling drums with water, charging batteries of lamps, etc.

"The most radical thing is that we are going to fill the house with dogs, so there is going to be a poop party."

According to the National Water Commission (CONAGUA), Delta hit the area as a category two hurricane, meaning very dangerous winds of between 96 and 110 mph (154 and 160 kmh).

According to the BBC, thousands of tourists and residents have moved into shelters for safety with more than 150 shelters opening their doors to people seeking refuge.

The head of the area's hotel association, Roberto Citrón, told AFP news agency: "To prevent the spread of Covid-19, the same measures have been taken in the shelters as in hotels, such as the use of gel and face masks."
