    Inside this ordinary suburban home there lives a host of hopping surprises - a troop of baby kangaroos. When a stranger pulled up at their home with an orphaned kangaroo in 2010, this couple’s lives changed forever and Our Haven Wildlife Shelter was born. Theresa and Tony Matthews had always loved wildlife but after being told that the healthy orphaned joey would have to be euthanised, they realised they had to aid the helpless animal and their kangaroo sanctuary was born.

      Tony aka scruff he is the funniest man alive I love that I know these people and I get to stay at there house my mum does the same thing as them and she works with them

    3. Armando Aguilar

      As a Mexican, one of my dreams and life goals is to visit Australia and hug a kangaroo. I would really like to visit your sanctuary.

    4. John Flynn

      Just another reason to visit down under I guess. What a cool place.

    5. Amadour Lopez

      Should turn nature into one instead..

      If there is good karma. Both of you have tons of it!

      2:49 the kangaroo said *Hey! Mom lemme have a bite* xD

    9. I Know You're Right But

      Barcroft I hope you donate some US-new funds to animal causes like these and I hope you get a tax break for doing so. Wish you had 90+ Million Subs like Pewdiepie and could do good things for animals. Seems like all the people with the funds ( Billionaires ) to do good for animals do nothing because every shelter is always broke, underfunded, overpopulated and always on the verge of shutting down. It's sad.

      The government really needs to help fund people like this..

    11. TrionBulldog

      I thought this was normal in Australia. What's the big deal?

    12. Paul_ paris

      How can they recognize their name lmao ?? they look so similiar!

    13. Kneeger Jim

      Hanging the panda bear is racist against the Chinese.

    14. Ronda Kudrna

      This couple is so calm and sweet and gentle you can really see it in these animals. Bravo!

      Quite wonderful married couple! This animation was seen and a kangaroo was studied many times. And a kangaroo is being raised in Japan now. The person who keeps a kangaroo by an individual doesn't have in Japan. There were no textbooks, so it was learned from this animation. Thank you very much for your nice animation.

    37. Simple Chigga

      Bruh if you spoil em they gon die in the wild

    38. Chelsea Woods

      It feels cathartic to see kangaroos cared for and saved after road accidents. I recently hit a kangaroo while driving. I had been able to slow down enough that the mum was fine and hopped away, but her joey wasn’t. A couple of hours later the ranger euthanised her, I can’t stop thinking about it, very sad.

    39. shipper66

      where do they shaite ?

    40. Rae Couper

      You're like another member of our group and her husband, who've had more than 30 joeys sometimes, and whose house is always spotless, plus she also has Crohn's Disease. You people amaze me! I have up to 6 joeys and I always get that one or two that's a really fussy feeder, and once, they were all fussy feeders to start with, so it would take up to 2 hours per feed to do 4 feeds a day, plus all the preparation. Your feeder system wouldn't work for me because I do the velvets/suedes up to soft release size, still fed in the pouch, and sometimes they won't even latch on, and others are head tossers, throwing their head back and letting go often. So I'm in awe of people who can look after so many, lol.

    41. skimaskenoch

      I was gonna but a kangaroo from a breeder but it was 5k so I was like nope

    42. Manuel Seda

      I want a companion kangaroo not so much as a pet! This would help so much with my anxiety!

    46. communistjesus

      Tony and Theresa are awesome..... Good Karma to them, and all like-minded individuals like them......

    47. Rambo

      Imagine what the world will look like if white people loved other races of people like they love and empathize with animals?

    48. Zoe McKenzie

      They're soooooo cute! ❤

    49. Aakash Sharma

      I still can't believe that you are allowed to eat Kangaroo even in Australia since its their National animal.

    50. Sandra Salerno

      I love how you have so much love for these beautiful animals thank you!

    51. Sandra Salerno

    53. Mehbub Hossain

      What will happen with the kangaroos after their death I m worried :(

    54. Daniela Mandl

      Hi! Im from Argentina and im traveling to Australia in December. I love kangaroos 😍 Do you receive visitors?

    55. Bethany Washington

      This is so beautiful

    56. Clickmaster5k

      Don't Australians already pay a bunch in taxes to cull Kangaroo populations? Something doesn't make sense here. If the government is culling them why are people allowed to interfere with natural population controls?

    57. Allison Hunter

      The wife and I do exactly the same as you Teresa and Tony. I know the heartbreaks and rewards we feel along the way! The only thing I say was rubbish about this video, you didn't show the real mess these magnificent animals leave behind. I know, you need someone with a dust pan and broom following them around LOL, good work!!!!!!!!!!!
