Adopt a Hedgehog


Each year Wildlife Aid takes in many young hedgehogs, who are raised to adulthood here at the centre, as well as taking in sick and injured adult hogs all year round. In the 1950s there were over 30 million hedgehogs in the UK, now there are less than one million with urban extinctions predicted by 2025!

The Wildlife Aid Foundation is campaigning to save the British hedgehog. Once a common sight the length and breadth of the UK, this iconic British wildlife species is declining so rapidly.

By adopting a hedgehog for just £24.95 per year, you help Wildlife Aid rescue injured or sick hedgehogs and provide them with around the clock care, food and shelter.

Please read before you complete the form:

If you choose a ‘Start Date’ in the future we will hold your adoption here and send it out for that date.  If you choose ‘ASAP’ we will send out the pack straight away.  Please allow up to working 7 days for delivery.

You can adopt an animal for yourself, or for someone else (“Gift Recipient”).

When ordering your adoption you can choose to have the initial pack sent either to yourself, or to the Gift Recipient, but we would like to send the six month follow up letter directly to the Gift Recipient so please make sure you include their address in the Gift Recipient fields.

Adoptions are for a period of one year from the date you choose to start.

Your purchase will help with the costs of looking after injured hedgehogs here at the Wildlife Hospital.

By adopting a hedgehog, you help Wildlife Aid rescue injured or sick hedgehogs and provide them with around the clock care, food and shelter. Rescued hedgehogs will often need specialist drugs, x-rays and sometimes surgery. Our animal adoption scheme enables you to help towards the costs of looking after injured hedgehogs here at the hospital.

Our hope is to help rehabilitate injured hedgehogs and then release them into the wild. The video below shows three orphan baby hogs who were in our care.

Hedgehog adoptions are just £24.95 per year and this money is providing us with the security of knowing that we can carry out rescue operations all year round. After 6 months you will receive an email giving you a year-round summary of the species you have adopted, letting you know about the sort of behaviours and habits hedgehogs would display in the wild. We will then email you at the end of the year, offering you the opportunity to renew your adoption, or to take out a brand new adoption.

Don’t forget you can adopt for yourself or as a gift for someone else, so please start the adoption process today.
