Animal Rescue Team, Inc. received this poor momma Opossum. She was found nearly dead lying in a dried up pond. Upon examination we learned that she was attacked by a dog. She sustained deep puncture wounds to her neck area, and rear legs. Thankfully no fractures. While suturing her we discovered she has a pouch full of babies. We will continue to monitor her, until sutures are removed, and her twice daily antibiotics have been completed.
ANY donations are desperately needed to continue our service to our native wildlife during this horrible drought.
