When a hedgehog arrives at the rescue it needs a full health check, including removing any parasites and treating any injuries it may have. This can be a costly process and sometimes requires a visit to the vet.
Hand rearing orphaned hoglets
Sadly we do have a high number of orphaned hedgehogs at the rescue in spring and early summer. They need round the clock care for the first few weeks, so it's all hands on deck to give these little fighters a chance.
Rehabilitating and releasing
Once a hog has been medically treated it is then fostered for a few weeks by our volunteers so that it can recover and regain its strength before being released. This requires a cage, food, bedding and the care and patience of our team.
