Arriving at the shelter can be a traumatizing experience for many animals. That is why it’s crucial for the staff to be welcoming and friendly. It can help the confused souls get back on track easily and it will further help in placing them in nice forever homes.
When Meesha, a baby dog, ended up at BARSC Animal Shelter, she had to be spayed. That only added to the initial stress she suffered from being brought at a totally unfamiliar place. Luckily for her, there was someone who was there to provide comfort and show her that someone cared.
Dennis Moses is a surgical assistant who was part of the doctor’s team who operated on the dog. But his job didn’t end at the operating room. On the contrary, he always makes sure his patients are shown love once they are out of surgery.
“If you’ve ever had surgery, you wake up, and you’re not sure where you’re at,” Moses told The Dodo, “It’s a scary thing even for dogs and cats, especially being in the shelter and being that young.”
A volunteer showed the whole country how caring Moses really is when he spotted him rocking the sweet pup like a baby and put it on tape. He was giving her hugs and kisses as Meesha couldn’t stop whimpering. The video quickly gone viral and people agreed how what Moses did was beyond adorable.
Only a day after the video spread on the social media, Meesha found her forever home. The shelter wrote, “She was spayed yesterday morning. She is doing just fine for adoption today. The new family knows to be extra careful and keep her calm.”
Baby Meesha was coming off her anesthesia and was a little scared because her body felt so weird. BARCS Surgical Assistant Dennis Moses took her out into the quiet hallway to comfort her. One of our awesome volunteers just happened to be walking by to capture this sweet moment. 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. (Turn on the sound, it will melt your heart!)
