While waiting for families to fall in love with them, shelter dogs deserve the best care and treatment possible. The above viral video is proof that a little bit of kindness can go a long way.
“Baby Meesha was coming off her anesthesia and was a little scared because her body felt so weird,” explained Baltimore-based BARCS Animal Shelter, in the caption of the video. If you’ve ever had surgery, you likely understand what it’s like to wake up, unsure of your surroundings. “It’s a scary thing even for dogs and cats, especially being in the shelter and being that young,” Dennis Moses, a surgical assistant.
While Moses isn’t sure of Meesha’s background, she was probably a stray or dropped off at the shelter. But in the happiest of endings, the puppy, who is around 12-16 weeks old, was just adopted into her forever home.
“They signed her adoption papers right away, because of how sweet and gentle Meesha was with their 11-month-old daughter,” Baily Deacon, BARCS’ Director of Communication.
BARCS took this sweet moment as an opportunity to thank their hardworking staff who do everything they can to keep the shelter dogs comfortable: “Thank you to Dennis and all the staff who work long, tireless hours in the background of our shelter—saving lives and loving the animals.”
