Auction

A local wildlife photographer, Brian Chard, has come to our aid by offering for auction one of his photos printed on a 20″ x 30″ Autumn Star Effect canvas in order to help raise funds for our ICU / Recovery unit, which we desperately need to help care for sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs.

This wonderful canvas will be available to the highest bid received by the close of play Wednesday 6th February. All bids to be registered on Brian’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/brianchardphotography/ where full details about the auction can also be found.

We would like to thank Brian for his kind offer, and continued support.

Rant!

This is what happens when you see a hedgehog out in the day, and leave it thinking it’ll be ok, and it’s still there the next day. By the time a call comes in to a rescue, it’s too bloody late.

This young hedgehog MIGHT have been saved had we been called earlier, instead it was all but dead when we arrived, and subsequently died on the way home.

IF YOU FIND A HEDGEHOG IN NEED OF HELP, PLEASE CALL US ON 07587 925 476 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Here are some photos of some of the hogs being released, ably assisted by young Oliver and his mum Sandra.

Blind

This poor old fella came to us Friday afternoon, he was found wandering around in circles.

Upon examination, we found that both his eyes are missing, with small wounds around the area, which suggests that birds have pecked his eyes out .

He does have a respiratory infection, which could explain why he would have been out in daytime and was able to be attacked.

Hogs like this cause us ethical and moral issues – do we keep him alive to live in permanent captivity, all be it in an enclosed garden, or do we have him put to sleep.

We’ll have to sleep on this one, poor bugger.
