Freebase

  1. Nassau

    Nassau is the capital, largest city, and commercial centre of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The city has a population of 248,948, 70 percent of the entire population of The Bahamas. Lynden Pindling International Airport, the major airport for The Bahamas, is located about 16 kilometres west of Nassau city centre, and has daily flights to major cities in the United States, the Caribbean, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The city is located on the island of New Providence, which functions much like a business district. Nassau is the site of the House of Assembly and various judicial departments and was considered historically to be a stronghold of pirates. Nassau's modern growth began in the late eighteenth century, with the influx of thousands of American Loyalists and their slaves to the Bahamas following the American War of Independence. Many of them settled in Nassau and eventually came to outnumber the original inhabitants. As the population of Nassau grew, so did its populated areas. Today the city dominates the entire island and its satellite, Paradise Island. However, until the post-Second World War era, the outer suburbs scarcely existed. Most of New Providence was uncultivated bush until Loyalists were resettled here following the American Revolutionary War; they established several plantations, such as Clifton and Tusculum. Slaves were imported as labour.

Weve gotten nine pleas from owners sending us pictures and locations where their dog was left, we also got a desperate plea from a family of five who had lost their home and they tried to get on a plane and they wouldnt let them take their dogs, so they stayed behind and they wouldnt leave their dog. We found a way yesterday to get their family to Nassau because two of their children didnt have visas to come in and get them on a plane safely.
