I spoke with Elaine yesterday and she alerted me to a serious problem hedgehogs are facing at the moment.

This hot weather is drying up the ground and making it difficult for them to find food.  And the situation with water is critical.  She is seeing an increase in dehydrated hedgehogs being brought in.

When I spoke to her she had not slept for 2 nights because giving water to the poorly patients is a round the clock job.

Please put some water out for hedgehogs (and other wildlife) and some food if you can.  Details of what to feed them are here and remember NO milk, bread or pork!!!

Please also pass this message on to anyone with a garden 🙂

We Can No Longer Accept Visitors

As of April 2021 Hedgehog Care is no longer a visitors attraction so please do not call by.

With old age, family illness and Covid threat, we are always open for Hedgehog patients and casualties but sadly no longer for showing visitors round.

Hoping you will understand and continue support.
