Just like humans, animals have feelings, too. The fact that animals, both wild and domestic animals, understand what happens and are grateful for our kindness. They never forget to thank us for the love and care we give them. And the touching story of Abigail, the adorable Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ kangaroo, proves it.
Abigail, also known as ‘the hugging kangaroo.’ She is a very grateful and affectionate Rᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ kangaroo. She ʟᴏsᴛ her mother when she was only 5-months old, and luckily she found her way to the Kangaroo Sanctuary, where the volunteers who work there welcomed the poor kangaroo with open arms.
Abi has been living in the sanctuary for more than a decade, but she never forgets to show how grateful she is to her rescuers. Everyday she starts her day by hugging the people who care for her at the Kangaroo Sanctuary. She lets them know how grateful she feels by giving them hugs and cuddles.
Due to her friendly, lovely attitude, Abigail earned the tittle of the sanctuary’s “Queen.” And now, all the staff at the centre start their day with a warm hug from Abi.
Kangaroos are said to have long memories, and like the workers over at the Kangaroo Sanctuary suggest, they also form very close relationships with their human caregivers.
The founder of the non-profit Kangaroo Sanctuary is Chris Brolga, who founded the sanctuary in 2006, after realizing that the nearest animal ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ center was 1,500 km away. The sanctuary is located outside of Alice Springs. It provides specialized care for kangaroos and offers unique ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ to rehabilitating ᴏʀᴘʜᴀɴᴇᴅ kangaroos.
It’s needed to protect kangaroos. Sanctuaries like this one are really making a difference, and we see just how much lending a hand can mean to another sᴏᴜʟ. Abigail shows her appreciation in the best way possible, and we have really been charmed by her pure love.
