Alan Jackson has TON of big country hits like “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “I’ll Go On Loving You,” “Gone Country,” “Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning),” and more, but it’s the lesser known song of his “Like Red on A Rose” that captivated several dogs in a shelter in Henderson, North Carolina.
In a video posted by the shelter, Animal Service Officer Chad Olds busted out his guitar as part of an enrichment project.
It's something the shelter does to keep the animal’s minds engaged while awaiting adoption, but usually is done with toys, treats and activities.
This time the shelter decided to change things up with music, as it’s been proven to calm animals down.
The result was fascinating as within seconds of his singing, the dogs quieted down.
“They just stopped barking. It blew my mind,” recalled Olds.
The group posted the video to Facebook and quickly garnered more than 400,000 views.
Alan Jackson and his team caught wind of the “concert” and praised them for their unique idea to help appease the pups.
“Shout out to Chad & Friends of Vance County Animal Shelter! What a great way to share Alan’s music!” they wrote on Facebook.
After seeing the reaction of the dogs, the shelter plans to continue their concert series in hopes of placing each of their dogs in loving homes.
Another WIN for Country Music!
