Theresa and Tony Matthews of Victoria, Australia, have dedicated their lives to rehabilitating orphaned joeys.

"Because of our love for kangaroos, we just opened up our home to them," Theresa explained in an interview with Barcroft TV. "And this rescuing got bigger and got bigger."

Tony explained that their rescue, Our Haven Wildlife Shelter, started in 2010, when someone drove up to their home, asked whether they know anything about wild animals, and dropped a kangaroo off at their home.

They took the kangaroo in, and named it Bobby.

“We realized that there was no one here for these joeys and they were being euthanized, not because there was anything wrong with them, there were just no way to go,” Theresa explained.

Aussie trio cleared for BBL final

  Aussie trio cleared for BBL final Australian T20 trio Travis Head, Alex Carey and D'Arcy Short have all been granted a release from the national squad so they can appear in Sunday's Big Bash final between the Hurricanes and Strikers. Fast bowler Billy Stanlake wasn't quite so lucky and will have to stay with the national squad due to a "tougher workload".The inclusion of Head in particular is a massive boost for the Strikers after he hit 85 runs in a semi-final against the Renegades to secure Adelaide's spot in the decider.

"I’ve woken up to one on my head," Theresa joked. "Actually, Lucky the swamp wallaby has done that quite a few times."

She says that each of the animals they've taken in have different personalities, and love apples, almonds and sweet potatoes. 

The rescued marsupials grow on them quickly, which makes letting them go after rehabilitation all the more difficult.

“It’s hard to say goodbye, and I always cry on the way home, but you know, it’s about them, not us,” Theresa explained. “We’ve done our jobs and we've got to let them go."

In addition to the 17 eastern gray kangaroos, they also have three swamp wallabies and a pygmy possum living in their home.
