7-Year-Old Boy Honored With ASPCA Award For Saving Over 1,300 Dogs From High-Kill Shelters

Meet Roman McConn, a 7-year-old boy who hails from Augusta, Georgia and has unconditional love for animals, especially dogs and cats. He has saved more than 1,300 dogs and 50 cats from kill shelters since he was just 4 years old. And for that, he got awarded from ASPCA as the Kid of the Year for making real change for animals in need.

It all started on his 4th birthday, when Roman asked family members and friends not to give him any gifts and use that money instead to contribute to his favorite animal rescue organization.

“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,” Roman said. “I think a lot of other kids should be doing what I’m doing.”

With his mom Jennifer support and his family, his small act of kindness has evolved into Project Freedom Ride, an organization that helps rescue and transport animals from kill or overcrowded shelters in Georgia and Texas to Washington and other places, where they helped the dogs find new homes with loving humans.

His mom would film him playing with the rescue dogs and share them on Facebook so potential adopters can see how adorable and sweet the pups are.

“She posts it on Facebook so people can see it,” he explained. “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.”

Although Roman is so young, he tries his best to help poor dogs and animals because each of them deserves a better life than those in shelters. Roman also hopes that other children will hear his story and become interested in helping animals in their area.
