Volunteers at Lisa’s Kangaroo Retreat are grateful to have their cuddly and cute joeys back in safe hands after an ordeal with one of Australia’s deadliest snakes.

Earlier this month two joeys were bitten by King Browns at the retreat and were rushed to South Hedland Vet for recovery.

Another two were lost last week to snake bites.

The not-for-profit established a crowd funding campaign to help with medical costs.

Kangaroo carer Lisa Rose said the animal loving organisation appreciated the contributions of locals to help the joeys recover and continue their rehabilitation process.

“We are so incredibly thank you for all that South Hedland Vet has done for our joeys and are grateful to have them back at the retreat with us healing,” Lisa Rose.

The retreat will remain closed for several week to address the snake problem.
