STANWOOD, WA (WCMH) – A six-year-old boy’s rescue operation has gotten so large, he now pulls dogs from shelters across the country.

Roman McConn is a six-year-old boy on a mission.

When Roman was four-years-old, he saw a dog adoption event while living in Texas, KCPQ reported.

“He kept asking why they were there and I would tell him they’re looking for homes. And in that 4-year-old mind, he’s like we just need to find them homes,”  said Roman’s mother, Jennifer McConn.

“We make videos for dogs and we get them adopted,” said Roman.

When Roman and his mother moved to Washington, they took it a step further. They pull dogs from high-kill shelters in Texas and transport them to the northwest and into the arms of eager adopters.

A recent transport contained 65 dogs.

Not all the dogs have families waiting. Some will be placed with rescue groups while he makes videos to find them permanent homes.
