Humane Society of Grand Bahama rescue a cow stuck in the sea

Photos 1-2: A cow in Eight Mile Rock who was stuck in the sea. With the help of some citizens in Eight Mile Rock, they were able to guide her back to the area where she could easily get out.

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Rescuing large animals is not something we do every day at the Humane Society of Grand Bahama, but last week when we received a call about a cow in Eight Mile Rock who was stuck in the sea, two intrepid HSGB staffers headed down to help.

The cow had evidently waded out for some unknown reason and then the current took her too far away from where she went in, and she couldn't find her way out. With the help of some citizens in Eight Mile Rock, they were able to guide her back to the area where she could easily get out.



We have several small dogs at the moment, including Covi, who was found by a Good Samaritan wandering on Cove House Road, filthy dirty and extremely matted.

We also have Sasha who we call a mini-potcake, she is only 25 lbs and sweet as can be.

And recently poor little Deja came in - her owner is having to move in with her son for financial reasons, and the son will not allow her to bring her beloved dog. Deja is five years old.
Both human and dog cried at being separated, we really hope to find her a loving home very soon as she is very confused about being at the shelter. She does have dermatitis which is being treated, and her vet says it can be resolved with proper treatment and good diet.

We have at least four more mini-potcakes, and two other toy breeds as well. Come in and check out our amazing dogs and cats!

Thanks to the folks who have offered to foster dogs or puppies during a hurricane. We could still use a few more fosters! So if you're able to help out, please call 352-2477 or email us at info@hs-gb.org.
