This determined little boy just sent out an urgent PSA on behalf of a beloved four-legged friend.
Six-year-old Roman is calling on his followers to rescue Legend, a deaf and lovable Labrador retriever currently at Skagit Valley Humane Society in Burlington, Washington. The adorable video has more than 18,000 views, and counting.
Roman’s passion for rescuing canines began when he was just 4-years-old, according to mom, Jennifer McConn.
“He opted to forego receiving presents on his fourth birthday and instead asked for donations so he could give those to a local rescue in Texas,” McConn told Mashable. “It’s kind of taken off since then.”
McConn said Roman typically enjoys interacting with dogs. He and his mom often make videos to spread the word about pups in need.
Now, for his latest mission, Roman is determined to find a home for Legend.
Legend is just one of many dogs McConn and Roman have helped.
In fact, McConn runs her own animal rescue organizations, PAWS & Read and Project Freedom Ride, dedicated to caring for, sheltering, and rescuing dogs from kill shelters in Texas.
“We transport dogs up to rescues and humane societies such as Skagit Valley Humane Society or to our direct adopters,” said McConn.
“Typically dogs that are in the humane society are our first priority to visit but there is always one or two non-Project Freedom Ride dogs that pull on our heart strings, like Legend.”
Roman is a true example that you can be a hero at any age.
