Wednesday's Child: Stephen

He's probably one of the most honest kids I've ever met. Stephen will tell you he's right at home here at the Humane Society.

He says he understands the uncertainty these animals are facing, the fear they must feel for the unknown and the hope they have to be part of a loving family.

In fact, he identifies with them so much that he'd like a future taking care of such critters.

Stephen says, "when I grow older that's what I think I want to do when I grow up...is just build a humane society and work."

Stephen, who's 15, had a blast hanging out with Charley, a Cocker-Poodle mix.

He says he loves the outdoors and his favorite sports are baseball and basketball.

Believe it or not, he also enjoys going to school.

Stephen explains, "My favorite subject in math is like algebra because like I'm dealing with negative and positive integers. And then in science I'm going on how plant cells like... what plant cells are made of... like cholorplasts and stuff like that."

Stephen believes he's better equipped to handle a small family and is hoping to find a mother and father who can provide a loving environment that is both kid and dog-friendly.

    Are there any younger children needing a good home? My wife want an infant or a young child. If you can connect us well will adopt him or her. Thanks.

    My husband & I would adopt him if we had a decent home. As it is I know we would not be able to given the fact that the double wide we live in isn't up to code...for starters. We don't have any kids yet but we have land, dogs, birds & chickens...Stephen would probably love it here. I hope he finds a VERY loving family.
