There were over 18,000 animals admitted to our wildlife centres in 2018, of which more than 2,000 were hedgehogs. Be the hero that hedgehogs need and help us rescue, rehabilitate and release thousands more by donating now.
The period from January to October 2019 saw a five-year high for admissions, a 22 percent increase from 2018. Hedgehogs' lives are full of obstacles and even when they think they've found a home, they can be in great danger. During autumn and winter, for us it's just a bonfire or a pile of leaves, but for hedgehogs it may have become their home. As you'll see below, there are also cases where hogs suffer terrible abuse and can get injured unnecessarily because of litter. Without your help, hedgehogs will continue to suffer.
