The third opossum must be the cutest one I have ever seen in my life!!!
I know many of you have worried about Loreta after her dog, Bonnie, passed away. She had a really rough week, but your support has been so helpful to her and she felt all the love from you guys. If you missed her post on Instagram, here it is: instagram.com/xoxoloreta/

Thank you Pacific Wildlife Project for raising these babies so they can be released as young adults with a much greater chance of survival in the wild!

If you like our work and if you can, please send a small donation so we can continue rescuing animals. As you could see in this video, it didn't matter to me that the call came in on the weekend, at night, 30 minutes after I took a nice shower... when these animals need us, we're there for them.

Thank you so much for your support!


  • Opossums are such sweet animals. People fear them, but seem to like raccoons.... who are 1000x more dangerous. An opossum, that I suspect was a rehabilitation release, joined me on the back deck one night as I fed a stray cat. I talked to it so I didn’t startle it, but it just kept looking for more food. It ate cat treats from a canister I was holding and didn’t even hiss or show teeth when I started petting it.... just wanted the food. They’re GREAT for the environment (they eat ticks and anything laying around) and don’t carry rabies... on top of being completely peaceful. Even showing teeth is trying to scare you away.

  • Why did they have to catch these possums? I live with possums around me, and they are just fine if you leave them alone. Babies run around and then go back to their mother. We have brush-tail possums and ring-tail possums all over the place. Ours are marsupial too. Cheers from Australia.

  • He says oh look how big they got. You should see the monsters that come into my backyard. They are bigger than our dog. There was a smaller one that would just hang out on top o the fence, because if he went into the yard the 2 huge ones would beat her up. And just as i was writing this, i went to my window and looked down and there was teddy the largest one waitin for his peanut butter sandwich. Snow all around. They are so huge my raccoon friend that came to see me all summer was scared of them. Do these guys not hibernate? My Raccoon and my skunk friends went to ground about a week ago. I very much did enjoy my covid summer backyard zoo this year. I have some pretty cool vids i need to upload being surrounded by Animals and having my raccoon dita sit beside me at the table and eat her dinner. Then we would play sometimes or she would chase one of the young skunks and pin them for hugs. They never squirted on her. They all must have known she had a sweet gentle nature. I do hope to see her again. miss her already.

  • Hello hope for paws team! The work you do is amazing! But one thing doesn't sit right with me. The use of cheeseburgers to help with the mission. If we can show this level of compassion to dogs why aren't we showing this level of compassion to all animals? We've been socialised to believe we don't kill dogs but killing pigs and cows etc is fine and normal. The meat and dairy industry is so cruel and torture animals their whole life until they are not useful anymore and are slaughtered. If you and your audience show compassion and benevolence towards dogs and other animals on your channel because they believe abuse towards them to be immoral then this morality has to be consistent and be applied to all animals surely? Not just the ones that we have been socialised to believe deserve a happy and safe life? It would be amazing to see channels such as yours that care about animals talk about the cruelty of the animal agriculture industry. I think it could really make a different. Just a thought. Thank you :)

  • Be glad the neighborhood dogs didn't kill them. Dogs are the #2 threat to wildlife behind human overpopulation. In the country a lot of dog owners ignore laws and let their dogs run loose and they terrorize and kill wildlife. Even the little dogs run off wildlife who are trying to hunt or forage for food.

  • We used to have rescued (unreleasable) opossums in our animal education unit at a large zoo I worked at. The comment that you're so glad they never try to bite is so true. They can be terrified and hiss and posture but I personally never had a single wild opossum actually try to bite me during a rescue. They're just the most inoffensive, harmless creatures. I love them, they're so wonderful.

  • Being a UK resident, clearly opossums are not native to this country 😂 but, since I’ve seen your various rescues of them, I have grown to love them. They are seriously cute and their eyes are like little beads of dark glass, positively adorable 🥰. I guess seeing them in the flesh is different to how we view them on screen because, when you said “oh he’s quite big” I’m sitting there thinking “he’s so tiny”! If you think he’s big, imagine how he must view you! Probably thinks he’s in the land of the giants😂. Anyway I love your channel and admire the amazing work you do. Thanks for looking out for our animal friends 😘😘

  • The first and only time I'd ever seen a possum was in 1990 when I moved to Hollywood FL from Queens NY one actually rushed at me in my driveway hissing it scared the shit outta me. Not until last week Monday morning around 3:45a I was heading home from work and changed lanes from behind a tractor-trailer in the R lane and as I went into the L lane there was one crossing the road slowly. My pedestrian crossing/ accident collision camera picked it up and attempted to stop the car because i didn't see it. Unfortunately I couldn't stop because an asshole in a Ford bronco who had also changed lanes was right on my ass i didn't want them to think i was brake checking them and go create a road rage situation at that time of the morning and I was for sure I'd be rear ended, again, after being rear ended recently on 9/21, my vehicle damaged and injured my lower back I had no choice but to hit it. It did close to $900 worth of damage to my lower bumper and undercarriage. It's been in the shop since last Tuesday. Oh man, all I kept thinking was I'm so glad it wasn't a dog it would just depress me but now I feel so bad after having watched this video😭

    • I'm sorry....I totally feel you. My dog was 19, two weeks away from 20 when I lost her in May. Due to Covid, we had to have her euthanized in the parking lot at the vet's office, where people could see. It was a private moment that was visible to so many and it felt so intrusive. I know the vet couldn't do anything about that, but it just felt like it was not dignified to do her that way. I still cry over her, even though I have 3 more dogs......it was just so hard. All my dogs have been rescues, too.

  • This channel reposts "rescue" videos of the same animals in different situations. There have been several situations over the past several months where they either accidentally or intentionally kill these baby animals, and make a video filming their dead corpse and proceed to bury them. THIS IS CLEAR ANIMAL ABUSE AND CRUELTY, AND NEEDS TO BE SPOKEN ABOUT. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, USE YOUR VOICE AND SAVE THESE ANIMALS!!! I hope the people that are responsible for making AND profiting off of these videos rot in hell. In my book, abusers of the innocent are the worst kind of human beings.

A live trap and a can of cat food is by far the fastest and easiest way to gather them up. Tho you do need to rig the 'trapdoor' with a pull cord or you will have one in and two trying to get in! They are so cute when they are really young!
