Brice had been living happily on Saint-Martin's island (in the Northern Part of the Caribbean) for 5 years when he had to abandon everything during Hurricane Irma. The storm devastated the area and parts of the United States at the end of August 2017.When boarding his plane to France as part of the evacuation, Brice had no choice but to leave his dog, Jahya, behind.
The animal was rescued by the SPA, the French equivalent of the British RSPCA, or American ASPCA.He was then transferred to one of the charities' shelters, in Guadeloupe.
