  "Singing, cradling and cuddling animals waking up from anesthesia is a soothing way to comfort them. It helps them feel safe and it helps them stay calm," spokesperson Bailey Deacon told TODAY. "We do everything in our resources to show our animals comfort and love."

  BARCS is a very busy shelter, taking in some 11,000 cats, dogs and other critters every year. And right now is as busy a time as ever.

  They also have playgroups, in which dogs can go outside and socialize with one another while burning off a lot of steam. During this time, staff can also evaluate dogs' personalities to help place them in homes where they will make the best possible matches.

  "Or sometimes it’s just the really simple things, like warm blankets and a loving touch," said Deacon. "We are never short on love. Our staff is compassionate and passionate about the work they do and the animals they serve."
