Cyclists Robert Perri and Dan Murray picked Neo up and brought him the 3 miles back to town.
Neo was turned over to Nathan Lysaght, founder and director of Pittsburgh-based nonprofit Nate's Reptile Rescue.
"This is the 11th alligator I have from Kiski Township," Lysaght told TribLive.
Lysaght said Neo is underweight and will be treated for an eye injury.
He said Neo will be transferred to another facility in Texas or Florida once the small gator grows to be more than 6 feet long.
