Adam Bahus may not be your typical eight-year-old boy. For his birthday, he didn’t want a basketball, a video game, or the newest toy in stores. Instead this second-grader asked his friends to bring items that he could donate to the Terre Haute Humane Society in Indiana.
Adam and his parents handed out copies of the Humane Society’s wish list to his friends before his birthday party. Adam’s friends gave him pet food, newspapers, trash bags and other supplies the shelter needs.
â€œIt was his idea. He loves animals. He wanted to make sure they had toys,â€ said Adam’s mother.
Adam, his brother, and his cousin personally delivered all of the supplies to the animal shelter.
Adam said he just wants to make the animals feel at home when they are at the shelter.
Adam’s father said that Adam has been an animal lover for most of his life, and whenever the family visits an animal shelter, Adam “wants to take [all of the animals] home.”
