Last week, Baltimore shelter posted a video of a veterinary surgical assistant comforting a 3-month-old puppy named Meesha after she underwent surgery to get spayed. Fair warning: the sight of the grown man rocking this crying dog like a baby might tear your heart into a million little pieces. The video has over 8 million views on Facebook, probably because, in this scary world, everyone wants to be held exactly like that dog.

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!)
