An unexpected troup of little ones delighted outdoor audience at Minex on Tuesday – baby kangaroos, wallabies and puppies thanks to the saintly animal rescuers North West Wildlife Carers and Paws Hoofs & Claws.
She dedicates her time to care for the orphaned animals around the clock before releasing them onto a protected, predator free station.
Sue Carson from Paws, Hoofs and Claws also brought furry friends to MineX including two kittens, several puppies, and a lovely dog called Boss – who is looking for a forever home.
Ms Carson said she currently has around 60 animals needing adoption.
A crowd of school children gathered form 3pm to covet a puppy or two, with a few wanting to adopt.
Mount Isa Mines is a major sponsor of both charities, and invited them to be part of their stall at MineX 2017.
