ADOPT A HEDGEHOG

HELP GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE

ADOPT A HEDGEHOG

Every year, Wildlife Aid rescues, cares for, and releases hundreds of wild hedgehogs. These rescues are often orphaned hedgehogs, having lost their parents, or adult hedgehogs who have been brought to the centre, sick or injured.

All the hedgehogs will be cared for at our rescue centre until they are strong enough to be released back to the wild.

Shockingly, the UK hedgehog population has declined by 96% in the last 60 years, due to habitat loss. So, when we rescue an individual hedgehog, we are not just giving that individual a second chance, but we are also working to safeguard the species.

HOW YOUR ADOPTION WILL HELP

Your purchase will help with the costs of looking after orphaned or injured hedgehogs at the hospital. Our hope is to help rehabilitate injured hedgehogs and then release them into the wild.
