Jaydon Pettipas and Aidan Hart, two teenagers from Saint Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada, were casually hanging out in their neighborhood one day when they stumbled upon a crowd gathered around a car.

They noticed a creature that seemed to be trapped and unable to move. Uncertain of what to do, they felt a strong urge to lend a helping hand to the distressed animal.

Upon closer inspection, Jaydon Pettipas and Aidan Hart realized that the trapped creature was a squirrel, though its appearance was obscured by a layer of insulation foam. Positioned in a precarious spot beneath the car, the squirrel was in dire need of assistance.

Driven by determination, the teenagers sprang into action, procuring a small milk crate from a nearby grocery store to safely contain the squirrel. Recognizing the urgency of the situation and the need for additional guidance, they reached out to their friends and family for assistance.

Jaydon’s mother took the initiative to contact a veterinary clinic located 20 miles away. Dr. Melanie Eagan, the attending veterinarian, was astonished when she laid eyes on the squirrel.

Assessing the situation, Dr. Eagan speculated that the squirrel likely became ensnared in the foam while someone was repairing a hole in their garage or shed.

To remove the foam, Dr. Melanie Eagan meticulously employed rubbing alcohol and a comb, working patiently to free the squirrel from its sticky predicament.

Though it was a time-consuming process, thanks to the swift actions of the boys and their mother, the squirrel was successfully rescued and deemed fit for release back into its natural habitat. The boys’ decisive actions not only saved the squirrel’s life but also earned them recognition as local heroes within their community.
