Roman McConn is only six-years-old but he has already helped save more than 1,000 dogs from kill shelters.

His mom says the family’s dog inspired her to help other pups. “In July of 2015 we adopted Luna from a Texas ‘kill’ shelter. I was sunk! I became heavily involved with volunteering at the local shelter,” McConn wrote.

Together with his Mom, Roman helped his mom make videos to spread the word and connect shelter dogs with “forever families.” In the sweet videos, the first-grader shows off the dog for potential adopters, explains their breed, age, and why they need to be adopted.

‘Project Freedom Ride’ now partners with multiple rescue shelters in Texas which save strays, unwanted dogs and dogs from kill shelters. The project helps those shelters find new families or shelters for the dogs in the Pacific Northwest.

We need more people like Roman, don’t we?
