Opossums are virtually immune to rabies, and in fact are eight times less likely to carry rabies than other species.
Opossums have a very slow heartbeat and metabolic rate.
Opossums have partial or total immunity to the venom produced by rattlesnakes, cottonmouths and other pit vipers.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
