Cool kid makes bow ties for shelter dogs and cats to help them get adopted

Darius Brown, an awesome kid from Newark, New Jersey, makes bow ties for shelter animals to help them get adopted (because they're more cute). The cause is righteous, and so is the creativity he puts into designing and making the bow ties.

His organization is called Beaux and Paws.
There's a GoFundMe. You know what to do.


Darius Brown's passion for animals is matched only by his love of bow ties, and the Newark, New Jersey, 12-year-old decided to combine the two into something useful.

Brown's organization, Beaux and Paws, dresses shelter pets up in fancy bow ties, made by the preteen himself, so the animals can look good while seeking adoption.

"It helps the dog look noticeable, very attractive," he told the Today Show. "It helps them find a forever, loving home … I love everything about dogs and cats."

Brown was diagnosed with comprehension delay, speech delay and fine motor skills delay when he was only two years old, and over time, his family encouraged his creativity as he developed his love for animals and fashion, according to Today.
