As Green Monsters it can be hard to walk away from a situation once you notice an animal in need. Be it large or small, we are constantly taking slight detours from our days to lend a hand to creatures that need our help. We put out shelters for feral cats in the winter time, have wildlife rescue hotlines programmed into our phones, and always carry a spare leash in our car just in case we come across a stray or lost dog. It’s just programmed into who we are. We all could use some help sometimes, and the same goes for our animal friends.

Imgur user, 3sgtejeff, can certainly relate to this love of helping animals in need. When he came across a tiny southern flying squirrel left abandoned on a sidewalk, he took her in.

Meet Biscuit

He Found a southern flying squirrel Lying Half Dead and Did the Most amazing thing

Left all alone in the hot Florida sun, Biscuit would have never survived if she had not been rescued.

Her rescuer is not a trained wildlife rehabber, so we do not recommend that others try and rehabilitate wildlife without professional help.

The odds might have been against Biscuit, but she certainly is a fighter!

She is now three months old and healthy as ever.

Her caretaker says she also likes to terrorize her dog-sibling.

Looking at that face, we can hardly believe she could terrorize anything!

A big thank you to her rescuer who got her on her feet. Keep cruisin’ Biscuit!

Although this story and the photos are heart-warming and cute, we do not encourage our readers to feed or try to rehabilitate wildlife. Feeding and caring for wildlife interferes with the balance between wildlife populations and their habitat and could lead them to be reliant on humans for survival, amongst other problems. If you find an animal in need, contact a local wildlife rehabber/rescuer or veterinarian ASAP, or call a rescue hotline. Here are some that might help!
