    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: 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.

      Loretta is the dog whisperer.

    14. Tran The Clever

      She's a really smart dog, it looked like she was doing her best to get all the food without setting off the trap. Good to see that she also figured out that she was safe after being trapped and calmed down.

      Possums are so good to have around. They eat so many ticks and snails. People need to be educated on how great they are to have around.

    37. Yasenia Callum

      I love opossums! We never had ticks in our yard; which allowed me to sleep outside in the grass & not get bitten!

      How can know, that there wasnt other Babies? Or may the mom?😬

      Does he have some husky or shepherd? He’s gorgeous! Does he get along with cats and small dogs? 4:01 🍎 🖤

      This really hit me as a cat lover,how could they do that to a poor cat.💔Edit:What song did you use at 1:02 1:16 🍋 🍉

    41. Trần Thế

      Awesome job as always. I wish there was a vet like Dr. Pedraza in every town willing to give his time to save the ones in need. I get tired of so many dogs at the shelter getting unnecessary surgery like amputation or eye removal due to a lack of resources for treatment. Adopt, foster, volunteer, or donate. 4:10 🍓 🌳

    42. Kamoonra The Wolf God

      Possums need rescuing? We have lots of them in Georgia and no one rescues them. They run free here. Careful. They have a nasty bite. Just wondering. They are so adorable. Poor little babies. Glad you rescued them and helped them out. I didn't realize they were so young.

    43. FlaKNMB

      These little guys are so beneficial and don't harm anyone. Thank you for saving them. I'm glad to see they all made it. I was concerned for the one who wasn't moving. So sorry to hear that Loretta had to let her Bonnie cross over the rainbow bridge.

    44. Peter Walton

      We don’t have them in England but they seem very nice feisty little animals

    46. beaksofeagles

      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.

    47. ꧁Cat G꧂

      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.

    48. outdoorbooks

      Just FYI they bite

    49. Sherri Cary

      For a country having only 1 marsupial in its repertoire, we got the best one! They are so helpful and I just love them. Thank you for all your rescues!

      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 :)

    55. StormRider

      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.

    56. hyperfocal2002

      They always try to look so fierce, but they are more like feral kittens.

    57. Tser

      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.

      Opossum party, oh boy

      This is the only channel I would be fine with padding for 10 minutes so they can afford more equipment for these rescues.

      These are WONDERFUL animals. So beneficial for the environment. They eat thousands of ticks that transmit Lyme Disease and they are almost entirely immune to rabies. They sound really scary but they are not aggressive at all and only will bite as a very last resort. Love Love Love Possums!!!

    71. Vanna Rocha

      Maybe there was more lost there at night, the mom opossum always have lots of babies and they will die alone.

    72. CFC thegreatesttherecanbe

      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 😘😘

    73. Miroslava Ječmenica


    74. Kelseyyy Elizabeth

      i love how you handle these situations with opossums! a lot of people think that they’re gross and carry rabies, when actually their body temperature is too low for rabies to survive!

      Lol there are no more dog s in L.A !? Lol aposson kioute to

      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😭

    79. Michelle Carver

      You are lucky Eldad, because while it is rare opposums have been known to bite when cornered. Thank you though for saving these precious, sharp toothed babies. They are adorable, teeth and all.

    80. LegendaryHokage1000

      This channel should reach to 100m subscribers for rescuing God's creatures, God bless y'all and also this is really great content!!

    81. Dr Betty Schueler

      They act so fierce but are actually very sweet. I love possums.

    82. Ashley xo

      Love this!! Thank you for saving these sweet babies ✨😘💕

    83. zullo christinet

      A wildlife rescuer vet told me that Possums do not carry rabies due to their low body temp :)

    84. CawAreYouDoin?

      My condolences to Loretta. I'm sure with you, Bonnie has had the best life possible.

    85. Tia Geminiuc

      And Loretta saved those Skunks!!

    86. Uğurcan UYSAL

      Why on earth you don't put ads in your videos? it's much more easy than asking 5 dollars. Also you can raise a lot more for the animals. i can't afford even 5 dollars trust me but i watch every video you send. Please earn money from USfilm!

    87. Penny Grimm

      awww he is the size of my rats

    88. Hendrika Sunqrout

      So sorry for :Loretta's loss. RIP Bonnie. I know how you feel. I love Opossums even though I have never seen one. They look so fierce and intimidating! LOL

    89. Limey

      I'm so sorry about Loreta's loss. I lost my cat back in May and I'm still feeling the devastation!

      1. C B

        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.

    90. liana tobias

      I am mam from a baby opossum. Here in Brazil, they stay in mams balybag, like a canguru. My baby is only a month and a half old he sleeps in my hand and many strategies for him not escaping. Hugs.

    91. TGSEdAbCa

      They are so ugly when they open their mouths they’re cute!!

    92. Ezra Creitz

      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.

      1. Ezra Creitz

        @X Impaladin X the videos are proof themselves, if you look through them you can clearly see that the animals are being reused, but Nick Crowley has 3 extensive videos on it as well if you would like a more in depth explanation

      2. X Impaladin X

        Is there proof of this?

    93. Judith Walker

      When I was invaded by baby possums, the lady from the wildlife center said they almost always come in threes! 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!
