Seven-year-old American Roman McCon has more than 1,300 rescued dogs on his account! For his good deeds, he was recognized in 2018 as “child of the year”. He was honored by the American Society for Animal Welfare.
“Every dog deserves to find loving owners and a suitable home. I think that many children could do what I do and help animals,” said Roman.
For the first time, the boy thought about the fate of dogs in shelters when he was 4 years old. And already at the age of 7, he founded the “Project Freedom Ride” organization.
This organization is committed to saving dogs from shelters in Texas, where they will inevitably be put to sleep. Roman is looking for new owners for the animals so that they can find a new home and move on.
After Roman became the child of the year, he and his mother were invited to New York. There he talked about his organization and how he helps dogs.
Roman’s mother Jenny McCon is proud of her son and helps him in everything. In December 2016, Jenny and Roman managed to transport 31 dogs from Texas to Washington and find new owners for them.
We appreciate and praise the work Roman does for animals. And thank you to the parents for upbringing such a kind-hearted child.
