A boy with a big heart, and a creative mind, has been recognized for his efforts to find homeless shelter dogs their forever homes. His name is Evan Bisnauth, and the 11-year-old has been doing his utmost to find homes for homeless pets at the Animal Care Centers of New York City.
Evan tells NBC News that he enjoys reading to the dogs because it helps to socialize them, and makes them less reactive when potential adopters come to visit the shelter. But the compassionate boy does much, much more than visiting and reading the dogs…last year, he started animating the shelter dogs, and adding his voice, from the dog’s perspective, into captivating short videos.

Evan’s efforts are paying off. People who see his photos and videos gain valuable insight to the shelter dogs, and the happy results is increased visibility for the homeless pets, and best of all, more adoptions.
The ASPCA recently named Evan “Kid of the Year,” for all of his good work. Matt Bershadker, ASPCA president and CEO, said:
“Evan is a great example of what can be accomplished for animals in need when you apply commitment and compassion to an opportunity. Evan made the most of his opportunity with Animal Care Centers of NYC, and we hope he inspires people of all ages to support vulnerable animals and the organizations dedicated to their protection and welfare.”
