Ginny Hawksley from the London office of the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board said: "It's been quite emotional and encouraging to see the BVI love from so many people". Instead of trying to save the pets piecemeal, Gear made a decision to charter a plane immediately and get all 300 of the animals she planned on rescuing, which included numerous dogs and several cats, out at once. The animals are now in Virginia on Sali Gear's ranch. USVI public water systems have been significantly impacted by Hurricanes Maria and Irma and subsequent flooding, including by a loss of electrical power, and are not yet fully able to provide adequately treated water to meet the needs of those affected areas. "I'm exhausted emotionally, physically - but spiritually, I'm not", she told The Virginian-Pilot. 'People have moved Heaven and Earth to make this happen'.
"We have had many donations from the United Kingdom travel industry, family and friends as well as from people who remain anonymous which I find hard as I really want to thank them". Those 300-plus animals landed safely in Virginia on Tuesday evening; each of them had a note taped to their kennels that read, "I survived Hurricane Irma". She's focusing her relief efforts and fundraising drives on helping people get supplies specifically to their loved ones.
The dogs have been in cages since the storm hit - only being taken out for walks.

Locals have already contributed more than $2,000 worth of staples for those who have lost their homes to the recent hurricane, organizers said. "Please be cautious with me" - where they were met by a large group of high school volunteers, led by Tinsley Sarrett, who showed up to walk the dogs upon their arrival.
Before and after the storm hit, Gear and a few friends worked to arrange for the animals to come to the states. "They just need a home". They're relocating 100 animals from Miami to a specially devised shelter in SC.
Almost 50 dogs had been rescued by state authorities in Florida before Irma even hit.
