7-Year Old Boy Gets The “Kid Of The Year” Award After Rescuing More Than 1200 Dogs

Meet Roman McConn. Roman might look like a regular 7-year old kid, but he’s truly a kind and unique soul. While other people aren’t really sure what to do with their lives, Roman had a mission, a dream to pursue, since he was at the young age of 4. For his fourth birthday, Roman didn’t want present. He wanted his friends and family to donate to an animal rescue. Roman was on a mission to rescue animals and he was determined to succeed.

Three years after starting his mission, now the 7-year old Roman has managed to save more than 1200 dogs and 40 cats. He tries to save the animals that are most in need, the ones waiting for euthanasia.

Roman’s mother records videos of every time he plays with homeless dogs and cats and then posts them on Facebook to help the animals get adopted.

Roman is totally dedicated to his mission, to improve the animal welfare. Romans motto is that dogs don’t need to be in a shelter, they need to do things.

Roman also volunteers with “Project Freedom Ride”, a relocation network community founded by his mother.

Brave little Roman was named Kid of the Year in 2018, by the ASPCA. He got the award due to his compassion for vulnerable animals and his commitment to advocating for them well beyond his years.

“I think it’s very important for the dogs I meet that I give them the best chance at finding the right home that they need. I think a lot of other kids should be doing what I’m doing,” says Roman.

Roman was also a guest at the Ellen Show, where he received 20.000 dollars. Roman donated all the money to Project Freedom Ride.
