Baby opossum lost his family, so we found him a new family!

125K views6

    This little baby was so lucky when a Good Samaritan noticed him alone in a trash bin in an industrial area! Luckily, the man knew our Hope For Paws rescue videos and knew to call us for help :-)
    Loreta Frankonyte and I headed out and completed this rescue. Loreta asked me to post a link to her favorite wildlife rescues, so here they are for you:
    Thank you Pacific Wildlife Project for fostering this baby along with a few other opossums I rescued. If you want to see their rescue video, please let me know.
    We have many more rescue videos here:
    Thank you so much for liking, sharing, and commenting on our videos.
    You can follow Hope For Paws here:
    and you can see more updates on Loreta's page here:

      We caught an opossum last year when trying to catch a dog that had been living in the woods behind us. He was not happy, and especially not happy but was quickly released. Unfortunately, the dog was never caught and was no longer seen around. We are hoping that the food and water I left out got him his strength back up so he could wander home. I tell myself that, rather than the other possibilities.

    7. Timber The Snow Leopard

      Surprised Loreta didn’t β€œ kill β€œ the opossum lmao

    8. TheGingerLife08

      That poor baby opossum doesn’t know what to feel he is just hanging there with his mouth open confused.

      Opossums are so misunderstood, and get such a bad rap just for the way they look. They are actually a very docile and important animal in the eco system. :-) I had two live around my previous house, even my Cat made friends with them. Lol. Never had a problem with mice, rats or other pests. I think my Cat and the Opossums would tag team? :-)

      Well I was trying to start today on a happy note. Guess not4:34 🌱 πŸƒ

      That was a beautiful thing! Opossum are absolutely adorable little creatures! I absolutely love them! When we put extra food out for the Raccoons we always make sure that there'll be enough for the Opossum that will come later in the night! πŸ’˜

      Would you imagine if Loreta was the rescuer of the owl in the Rockefeller Christmas tree?

    29. Bulbous Borb

      I don't understand why a wildlife rescue, people specialized in rescuing wild animals, weren't called. They are a pet rescue. This isn't the first time they were called for a wild animal. I understand that they would want to help any animal in need but they seriously have no experience and should be calling in people more qualified. On a positive note, glad everything turned out alright for the opposum.

    49. Squee Dow

      It's a shame they look so scary. It tends to give people a negative feeling about them. I spent years squirting them with the water hose when I would take my little dogs outside in the middle of the night. I had no idea that they were virtually harmless and were beneficial to the neighborhood. All I knew was that my dogs were tiny, and I feared for their safety. Obviously, I leave them alone these days, almost apologizing to them for interrupting their foraging.

    50. Elizabeth Maloy

      Yes, please to their rescue videos! I love opossums!

      These guys are vital to keeping the lice and tick populations in check. Ensuring these babies get back out into the wild prevents parasitic critters from becoming a problem for domestic and other wild animals. I know they look vicious with those wide mouths and teeth bared, but they mean people no harm and they do a lot of good for the environment.
