For his fourth birthday, Roman asked for donations to rescue dogs instead of presents for himself.
Now he's 6, and his family has started a nonprofit called Project Freedom Ride that saves dogs doomed for euthanasia in Texas by transporting them to humane societies and homes in Washington state. Since last December they have saved 646 dogs.
But Roman is concerned about one particular dog who has not yet found a home because he is deaf. His family has two well-loved dogs at home, and they work with pets in need at the Skagit Valley Humane Society. Roman reads books to the dogs, including Legend.
