Dog-lover shelters 300 stray pooches from Hurricane Delta in his house

An animal -lover sheltered 300 stray dogs from a tropical storm.

Kind-hearted Ricardo Pimentel Cordero provided a safe haven for the hard-up mutts in the city of Cancun, Mexico, when Hurricane Delta struck.

He shared videos of his house full of pooches that were taken from the kennel he runs during a violent storm. Images show his house full of dogs of all different shapes and sizes on Wednesday, barking and wagging their tails.

One clip shows him filming some of the dogs inside, 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 was shared on Facebook and was viewed more than 100,000 times while more than 900 people commented on social media.

Many people have offered to help pay for food for the huge number of dogs.

Ricardo is believed to run Tierra de Animales, an ecological rescue centre focused on giving abandoned animals the chance of a new life.

He added: "We have already started the preparation work here in Tierra de Animales, to receive the hurricane 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."

Hurricane Delta reached landfall in Mexico on Wednesday, when it weakened to a Category Two storm with winds reaching 175km/h (110mph).

The US National Hurricane Centre warned of life-threatening storm surges and strong winds.

Thousands of tourists and residents have moved into shelters for safety.

The US state of Louisiana has declared a state of emergency as it braces itself for the storm.
