Not every rescue is for a dog or cat. When the Society was called concerning a possum in urgent need of rescue, Popcorn Park Director John Bergmann was johnny-on-the-spot. The marsupial was balancing precariously on the top of a piling in Barnegat Bay.
With his trusty kayak, John made his way to the possum, netted her, and put her into a carrier
It was discovered that she had babies and if she had fallen in the water, or when the tide came in, her babies would have surely drowned.
Mama got plenty to eat and then John released her back into nature.
