Boy Reads to Shelter Dogs Waiting to Be Adopted

A 10-year-old boy has found an adorable way to comfort dogs waiting to be adopted.

Fourth grader Evan Bisnaud visits animal shelters with his mom and reads books to dogs needing a little bit of extra attention.

"I know some of these dogs are scared, so I read to them to help them feel comfortable," Evan told Inside Edition.

In one video, a nervous pooch curls up and falls asleep after Evan reads a bedtime story.

Not only is it an adorable sight, it's also for a good cause. With over 1 million cats and dogs put down in shelters every year, volunteering to help dogs get adopted could save their lives, according to ASPCA.
