Sarah Curran, a volunteer at Sydney Wildlife suffered pretty severely from anxiety and panic attacks. It was so bad that she wasn’t able to function and she needed to be hospitalized twice. Fortunately, she found a way to make her feel better; she joined a volunteer rescue organization and fell in love with bats.
“The bats gave me something to focus on that wasn’t myself and it gave me a reason to want to get better,” she told The Dodo and added that her house is now full of rescued bats. “I rescue out of my parent’s home. The maximum number of animals that I’ve had in my house was…90.”
She is thankful for everything bats have done for her that she just can’t stop helping them.
“That’s what – what did it for me and it’s just been one long road. I was in a pretty low place, and I just am grateful because I don’t think I would’ve gotten out of that. I haven’t really said that before, but they’ve done so much for me and I wanna do the best for them that I can possibly do,” Curran finished.
Curran shares images of her bats on social media accounts, Facebook where she has attracted more than 25,000 followers and an Instagram page with over 7,000 fans. Scroll down and check out her adorable bats.
