Heartwarming pet adoption stories and practical activism advice from award-winning teen social entrepreneur and shelter animal advocate, Sir Darius Brown.

When Sir Darius Brown was eight years old, his older sister helped him improve his motor skill deficits by teaching him how to sew bow ties. A few years later, when he learned about dogs being euthanized due to overcrowding in animal shelters, he realized his skills might be able to help. If he made bow ties for the dogs, they'd look extra cute and, therefore, extra appealing to potential adopters. He soon founded Beaux & Paws, a company that donates one stylish handmade bow tie to an animal shelter for every bow tie sold. He then started the PAWsome Mission, an initiative to help shelter pets find their forever homes by donating bow ties to shelters all over the world, volunteering and participating in adoption events, and spotlighting shelter pets on social media.

In Project PAWsome: Saving Shelter Pets One Bow Tie at a Time, Sir Darius shares his own story alongside the heartwarming tales of adopted and rescued pets as well as pets and animal shelters he's helped along the way, complete with adorable photos. Readers will also learn how they can make a difference for animals in their own community--and how to make bow ties for shelter pets.
Sir Darius Brown is an award-winning teenage social entrepreneur and shelter pet advocate from Newark, New Jersey. He is the founder of Beaux & Paws and the PAWsome Mission GoFundMe campaign, where he donates bow ties to animal shelters and raises awareness for shelter pets through adoption events and social media. In addition to helping countless shelter pets find FURever homes, he's helped raise more than $300,000 to support animal shelters. Sir Darius has been featured on Good Morning America, CNN, Animal Planet, Teen Vogue, and People magazine. Sir Darius has been awarded the most prestigious accolades that a young individual can receive for his philanthropic efforts. Among other honors, he's received PETA's Hero to Animals Award, the Prudential Spirit of Community Award, the Diana Award, and, in 2022, Sir Darius was named one of 100 Global Child Prodigies in the world.
