When Alex Perez was 11 years old, he saw a puppy at a yard sale and insisted they bring it home. A few years later, while out driving with his mom, they found an injured pit bull running in the middle of the road. Alex picked up the bloody dog and brought him to the car.

The dog has since recovered and is living a wonderful life with Alex. Earlier this week, Alex, now 16, helped out during a different kind of rescue.

Alex had the day off from school, and he joined his mom and some volunteers to save dozens of animals from a hoarding situation in Canton, North Carolina.

The animals had all been taken to a warehouse and were in need of help.
