BAKERSFIELD, CA – There’s a new hero in town: Tara the cat!

Tara came to her owner’s rescue in Bakersfield, CA when he was attacked by a dog in a video that has since gone viral.

Cats haven’t been known for their heroism. Sometimes it’s man’s best friend that gets the spotlight. Now, Tara is making a good case for cats everywhere.

The hunt is on for the next hero at Houston’s Citizens for Animal Protection.

You could potentially have a hero for free! Citizens for Animal Protection will have free adoptions at the end of the month.

The next hero might be waiting for you!
