Therapy kangaroo used to help veterans
Utah Red Cross to honor red kangaroo named Charlie
SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Red Cross plans to honor a red kangaroo that works as a therapy animal at a Salt Lake City veterans home.
Charlie visits patients on a daily basis at William E.Chirstoffersen Veterans home. The year-old kangaroo also visits special education classes and hospice care facilities.
The red kangaroo only weighs about 30 pounds, but is expected to reach about 5 feet 2 inches and 125 pounds.
Charlie is expected to be honored for his work with veterans during a special ceremony next month.
