Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Good News

Maria came to us on 17th June with a broken leg. Our vet skilfully pinned the break, which saved her leg from being amputated. After some rehabilitation and a check over by the vet, she was passed clear to be released back to where she came from.

Charlotte and her young son kindly picked Maria up and released her back to their garden, where she came from, last night. She quickly scurried under the shed, which is where she had been living.
Good luck Maria, stay safe!

He had had subcut fluids, and was placed into a quiet box with food.
