This Guy Is Building A Special Hospital Just For Injured Kangaroos

Chris "Brolga" Barns started a baby kangaroo rescue center in 2005, and has really had his hands full ever since.

A few years after founding his rescue, Barns expanded it to a full-on wildlife sanctuary. Today, the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia, is home to several memorable characters, including Roger, a buff kangaroo, and Little Miss, who became a mother while living at the sanctuary.

When Little Miss, one of the sanctuary's oldest kangaroos, injured her leg, he had to carry her into town to get the medical care she needed. He sat in the waiting room with her, cradling her in his arms.

Luckily, Little Miss recovered from her injury.

But Barns realized he could do even more for his rescued animals: He recently decided to start a hospital at his sanctuary just for them.

This way, these unique animals can live long, happy - and healthy - lives.

"Oh my goodness, you do have an armful," one Facebook commenter wrote in reaction to the photo of Little Miss in the waiting room, "but what a lovely armful Miss is."
