He’s only 6 years old, but Roman McConn has already helped save more than 1,000 dogs from kill shelters.
Roman McConn, and his mom Jennifer McConn help to run Project Freedom Ride. The organization rescues dogs from high-volume Texas animal shelters where they face euthanasia. The dogs travel 2,000 miles to rescue groups and families in the Pacific Northwest.
Watch out Oregon!!! Here we come!! #DogchellaPFF supporters are invading the Aloft Hotel in Hillsboro — Beaverton OR!!!…
Roman helpes his mom make videos to spread the word and connect shelter dogs with “forever families.” In the videos, the first-grader shows off the dog for potential adopters, explains their breed, age, and why they need to be adopted.

Delta does well with children. As playful and active as she is, cats will probably not be a good idea.

When his dad, who serves in the Navy, received orders to relocate overseas, Roman and his mom moved from Texas to her home state, Washington — and they took 31 dogs with them. “I would joke with Texas Rescues about an underground railroad for dogs up to Washington because the world for a dog, generally speaking, was so much better up here in Washington than down there in Texas,” McConn told CBS News.
This joke became a reality and Project Freedom Ride was born. The pair began raising money and helping their local shelter in Texas relocate hundreds more dogs to the Pacific Northwest.
Roman helps do everything from making marketing videos for the dogs to calling families interested in adopting them.
It is a big mission to vet the dogs, transport them and place them with families or in a Humane Society, but Roman loves dogs and is proud to have helped over 1,000 rescues — including two dogs of his own.
