An Illinois shelter has a unique idea about how to keep the spirits of the dogs they care for up. Sometimes they provide what they call a fun sleepover with a volunteer so the animals get the feeling of what it's like to be in a home again. New video shows what happened when a dog they have had for more than 100 days did this.

Anderson Humane which has several shelter locations in Illinois just shared a video of "Dancer" on TikTok. He's a good boy that's been in their shelter for over 100 days so they decided to send him home with a volunteer and document what happened. The result is a touching reveal of how a dog can adapt so quickly to being in a loving home again. This video has gone wildly viral and has even been shared by Pet Helpful.

This isn't the first time they've had animals go to volunteer homes for sleepovers. This good boy has been with them for 425 days and still has no forever home.

Using video to encourage potential adopters is a great idea. Imagine how hard it is for the volunteers to return these animals to the shelter after they've had a great night out.
