Best Place To Meet Your Joey

Austin Zoo & Animal Sanctuary

The West Texas town of San Angelo specifically bans marsupials as pets. That’s how Jason, a red kangaroo, ended up at the Austin Zoo. All 350 animals at the zoo have a backstory, some tragic. Visitors help support the menagerie of former pets whose crime is outgrowing their owner’s ability to care for them.
