    10-Year-Old Heroically Saves Cat From Bullies

    When 10-year-old Wendell Overton saw a group of 5- to 13-year-old boys being cruel to a cat, he stood up to the bullies and rescued his new friend, Jackson. Jackson is recovering well at the Outer Banks SPCA in Manteo, NC, and Wendell is fast becoming a national hero.

    Here's the pic that Outer Banks SPCA posted on their wall to say thank you to Wendell for his quick thinking and bravery.

    After that, the cards and letters of appreciation started pouring in.

    Here's Jackson recovering at the shelter.

    And here he is saying thank you to his brave friend.

    Thanks, Wendell!

    You make the world a better place.
