When Poncho the opossum was found on the side of the road, his chances of surviving didn’t look good. He was too small to take care of himself and was suddenly found without a mother. Good things there are good samaritans like Hantu the dog around. Hantu “adopted” the orphaned opossum and cared for it like the puppy she never had.
The heartwarming story of inter-species friendship can serve as a powerful lesson to us humans too. If you ever see someone in need, no matter how different they are from you, you can care for them and make a positive impact on their life. The bond between Hantu and Poncho goes strong to this day and you can visit them for yourself at The Rare Species Fund in South Carolina.
