Today’s heartwarming news story: A starving baby otter was rescued by Salt River Project utility workers and nursed back to health. Yup, heroes do exist.

Three workers spotted the 4-week-old critter in a dried-up canal outside of Phoenix, Arizona.

The poor guy was dehydrated, flea-ridden, and hungry.

Is your heart not breaking for this poor baby?

First of all, Salt River Project then brought the baby to Arizona Game and Fish Wildlife Center, where they fed it with a mixture of trout and kitten milk. After six days, the otter recovered. Then, Salt River Project brought him to Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona, on April 26.

Furthermore, you can fawn over the adorable baby animal in the video below.

We otter say thank you to those kind workers for rescuing this sweet furbaby! She now weighs 2 pounds, 9 ounces, and looks as healthy as can be.
