That was great. It made me laugh though that the only kitten that looked happy was the one getting fanned by palm leaves.
I LOVE little Chance puppy at the end. He's a GOOD boy.
I wish all animal shelters would change their attitudes like this one did. The governmental places in Vegas are the absolute worst.
Dammit, that made me smile! Love the Chance dog at the end AND the cute Greg Louganis-looking guy carrying him.
That shelter looked bright and clean and damn amazing. Bet it smells good too. :)
It's cool they have kids involved, presumably as volunteers or the children of volunteers

It's filmed in one unbroken shot.
R3 Yes, Chance is a good boy!
I'm the bitchiest bitch that ever bitched but OMG this made me smile and cry.
Okay the big black guy singing ABBA made it for me.
Brilliant! Brought a tear to my eye!
Okay, who didn't cry while watching this video? May all these little creatures get adopted by loving owners.
And may they all spay and neuter.
I love how they had so many people involved in the video. And one unbroken shot with volunteers who presumably have no camera or performance experience? Dancing and singing/lip syching while handling animals? That's very impressive. Notice how they didn't use adult cats. It would have made it impossible.
This SPCA is at Raleigh Durham, Research Triangle.
OK, I'm in tears now. If you try to watch it on YouTube you have to do some shite to sync up the sound because the ABBA people wouldn't let them use the song. I think that's pretty rotten of them. There's no harm in it and it is for a very good cause.
Me too Ciaran. I've watched it 3 times today and when the little brown puppy comes out I'm just *gone*. Bawling.
The girl in the bunny ears with the chocolate-fur rabbit was my favorite part.
The animals seened very mellow, especially "Chance".
Very nice, I've adopted five dogs from shelters over the years.
Fuck ABBA for not giving permission to use their song.
I want an orange kitty in a box!

Ah, an idea for my next breakout project . . . everyone will love it
I've decided I want to take a chance on the cutie in the maroon shirt at the end of the vid. I can't stop watching it - and not just because of him.
R15 I didn't cry. I smiled from ear to ear. It's a wonderful, clean looking shelter with a huge staff that absolutely adores their animals. If all shelters were like that the world would be a better place.
Bless those wonderful folks and their adorable animals. After this video has gone viral I'm sure they'll all get forever homes!!!
Their exuberance and the nice coordination of effort was fun, for sure.
But that's a hell of a lot of animals to manage.
Can someone embed the video?
I don't know if it will ever go viral. It is from 2011 and the fact that they can't use the song on the YouTube version makes it very difficult to enjoy the video. Too bad. We should all go to the ABBA facebook page and make rude comments about how rotten they are for not letting the song be used.
It's Universal Music Group that refuses to let the music be used. They own and control ABBA's music catalogue now. Not sure why they would keep deleting this when there are hundreds of illegal ABBA remixes all over youtube. I doubt any of the ABBA members have seen this.
WHO'S A GOOD BOY????!!!!???
Definitely a heterosexual male took that video. He completely ignored the dog in the shopping cart and kept his sights on the bouncing boobs of the purple-shirted girl pushing it.
