Raising kids around animals offers so many benefits. It teaches kids about empathy, responsibility, confidence, and unconditional love. It can also help children develop social and verbal skills.
Before Huddy met Garry, a rescued kangaroo, he was a very shy boy.
Even if the family takes him out, he wasn’t social. He was so withdrawn that other people couldn’t see how beautiful or funny he was.
Whenever there’s a new rescued animal taken into their home, the boy would withdraw. He was extremely scared of birds. When a possum came, he was also hesitant to care for it or even approach it.
One day, Huddy’s mother, an animal rescuer, got a call from a wildlife group.
She was told that a kangaroo was hit by a car and it needed help badly. The poor kangaroo fell from its mother’s pouch and was left laying on the road.
Garry was in a really bad condition.
His scarring was terrible and he needed help most of the time. He looked so fragile, considering his age and the injuries he got.
Huddy easily warmed up to Garry.
Unlike with the previous animals, Huddy was particularly warm to the baby kangaroo.
In fact, the little boy grew fond of him. He treated him as his best friend. He fed Huddy and cleaned after him to make sure that he’s comfortable and safe. He carried him on his back and played with him at home.
Because the kangaroo was so sick, he relied on Huddy a lot. The boy, on the other hand, would shower him with lots of cuddles. They were just
Soon after, the kangaroo would always come after Huddy.
Garry felt more at ease whenever the little boy is around. He’s able to feed more whenever Huddy was there to look at him. It was just heartwarming to see. The two would just sit next to each other. At times, Huddy would put Garry on his lap and give him lots of hugs. Even his mom considered them as precious moments.
Huddy’s mom was very clear about how kangaroos grow.
She carefully explained to his little boy that soon, Garry would have to leave home. After about 8 months of being together, the kangaroo would need to be outside where they have to learn to be away from humans. They need to learn how to be kangaroos in their own habitat.
Garry grew so fast that he had to go to the wild.
The little boy didn’t feel so bad about his best friend leaving him. His mom believes that Huddy will always remember his best friend. And when he gets older, he’s bound to share his story with his own kids.
Huddy dreams of becoming a vet.
With the experience of taking care of Garry and seeing all the rescued animals his mother takes in, the little boy grew fond of animals. When he dreams of becoming a veterinarian once he’s older. He wants to take care of more kangaroos.
