Below are all the hedgehogs which we have at the moment for sponsorship. Please read their description to find out more details on them.
If you wish to sponsor one of the them, this can be done in our shop here
Hester joined us mid 2012. She came to us as her owner who was going to live abroad couldnt keep her. She had spent quite some time with a relative or the owners whom hadnt looked after her very well.
On her arrival it was very apparent Hester was very ill. She was very underweight and on Helen examining her it became apparent Hester in fact couldnt eat at all!
She was obviously taken stright to the vets who did an operation to remove all her damaged teeth. That left her with 3 teeth!
Hester now has to have food soaked to enable her to eat it. She has since gained over 100 grams in weight but is still very small for a hedgehog.
Hester is extreely lucky to still be with us as if she had continued she probably wouldnt have survived a few more weeks.
Meet Custard. Custard joined us late 2012.
He was 'bought' by someone who had no idea how to keep him. They thought they were going to get a hedgehog who they could handle lots and cuddle!!! It was no surprise to us that this didnt happen, although this little one is extremely inquisitive! He loves his malworms and cat biscuits and is a very happy little man.
Custard has proved to enjoy coming to events and often will easily open up to see all children.
It is because of this we decided Custard would make an ideal addition to our education work!
Toby is a lovely small boy who is very active and not very shy!
He came to us after his owners couldnt keep him. Sadly he wasnt kept in a very big 'box' before he came to us and therefore hadnt had much chance to excerise. He was fed on the incorrect diet which has also stunted his growth slightly.
He lives permanently at the rescue and comes along to educational events, therapy events and other events.
it is vital we increase knowledge on looking after pgymy hedghogs and our own native hedgehogs. Often children have never seen a hedgehog and Harold and Toby are just amazing for them.
