Six-year-old Roman loves animals… In fact, he adores them so much that he chose not to receive gifts for his fourth birthday and asked friends to donate to a local animal rescue instead.
But Roman doesn’t just ask for donations to the shelter, he takes his passion for animals one step further, donating his own time to help rehabilitate the pets and find them loving homes.
With the help of his mom, Jennifer McConn, Roman makes super-sweet videos featuring different dogs in which he explains why he thinks they should be adopted.
He talks about their special needs, for instance, he made a sweet video about Candy, who lost an eye in a car accident and is going blind in the other. Roman says that she would really love a home so that “she’s not all by herself.”
Heart = puddle.
So far, Roman and his mom have found homes for nearly 650 pets — they have no plans of slowing down.
And Roman doesn’t just play with the dogs he champions for at the various animal shelters he visits… he also works hard to educate pet owners about things they might not know. In one video, he talked about how concrete can be very hot, even when it’s just 75 degrees out. “It can burn their pads off,” he says.
