Most people would agree that a dog is man’s best friend and can be a beloved addition to any home. While a dog is often the beloved centerpiece of any home, there are still many situations in which one can be neglected and not receive the care that they need. Unfortunately, there can be a variety of situations in which over popular and crowded shelters require that these animals be sent to a kill-shelter. While most people are devastated by the thought of these shelters, one young child took a number of steps necessary to help protect as many dogs as he could (http://q13fox.com/2018/05/29/little-boy-saves-1000-dogs-from-high-kill-shelters/).
Over the past few weeks, the story of a 6-year old child from the Puget Sound area in Washington has come to national attention. This story has reported that Roman McConn started a new organization called Project Freedom Ride, which has the intention of saving dogs and other animals form high-kill shelters.
The overall goal of the organization is to save as many animals as possible. Most of the dogs are starting in Texas at a variety of high-kill shelters, but are then intercepted by the organization and transported to communities in Washington and other areas on the Northwest where they are given a safe place to live.
Roman and his mother go through a variety of processes to help save each individual animal. When they find a new animal that needs a home, they end up creating personalized video on social media that will discuss the animal and all of its unique characteristics.
The idea for the foundation started when Roman was just four years old when he attended an event that was dedicated to the adoption of dogs. While he was at the event, Roman determined that he wanted to start the organization and find ways to help as many animals as possible. Since that time, he has estimated that he has helped to save the lives of more than 1,000 dogs.
While Roman has done a lot of good so far, they are far from over. Since there are thousands of dogs that are transported to these shelters across the country each month, he is looking for more ways to help them thrive. This will include finding new homes and creating processes that will allow local communities across the country help animals that are in need and need further assistance to get into a good home.
