Hedgehog: Bundles of Spines

One of our favourite little visitors has got to be Hoglets! These tiny bundles of spines are just about the cutest animals. We have now got 15

beautiful babies at the rescue. They are being hand fed on milk every hour, after coming in severely dehydrated and lethargic.

Two of these little ones came into us after their mother had been killed. They were incredibly dehydrated and needed fluids urgently. Peep and Pip are feeding round the clock and are doing very well.

We are seeing a lot of baby hogs. The dry weather has not been good for them. Please leave shallow water bowls out and some food whilst the ground is so hard. It is not normal to see hedgehogs out in the day time so please be aware.

Some of our older hoglets are doing extremely well and are now even feeding themselves; which leaves us more time to focus on the younger ones and make sure they are getting what their bodies need to grow up strong and healthy. Needless to say, we will all miss these little bundles when they go! 


All our babies have gone into one of our pre-release runs to begin their release process. They have a plethora of warm hedgehog houses to make sure they all have a place to sleep without being on top of each other and there is enough space for them to roam around and forage. Once they have been in this for a couple of weeks, we will begin to release them into various release sites that are suitable for them. Some will go back to the gardens where they were originally found, which is brilliant!
