Here's today's feel-good story:

11-year-old Evan Bisnauth has multiple interests near his home in Bronx, New York. His main interest, however, is readying shelter dogs for adoption by helping them to socialize by reading to them regularly.

"I actually first read to my own dog when I was learning to read and write in school," Evan said. "During COVID, I was not able to go in person and I needed to find a fun way to showcase the dogs and put them in a positive light," Evan explained. "I started animating them doing all the fun things dogs like to do to get people to picture them as a part of their family."

Because of his dedication, Evan was just named ASPCA's Kid Of The Year.

"Our 2021 ASPCA Humane Award winners represent the best of us — heroic people and organizations dedicated to helping vulnerable animals, and amazing animals who demonstrate the invaluable love and comfort they're capable of providing," Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the ASPCA said.
