Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo stopped by the Bahamas Humane Society to personally deliver food for the shelter animals.
The clinic and charitable organisation has in recent weeks, requested food donations for its animals from the public, and Pompeo learning of the need, presented food supplies.
The Humane Society said Pompeo learnt about the shelter’s desperate need for food when her family visited Pet Heaven Boarding, Grooming and Pet Supplies in Nassau and had a conversation with owner and BHS board member, Sandra Cooke.
So on Friday, she stopped by to make the personal delivery.
“We were delighted and honored to receive a generous food donation from Ellen Pompeo, who plays Dr Meredith Grey in the much loved drama series,” the organization says.
“With our shelter currently at over capacity levels, we were fortunate to have received an outpouring of support from near and far when we recently put a plea on social media for donations.”
Ellen Pompeo plays the iconic role of Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy since the show’s inception in 2005. Pompeo is still with the show going into its 17th season this September.
BHS said as the country remains in lockdown, staff members are at the shelter every day taking care of its nearly 400 animals.
