The British hedgehog has now been officially classified as vulnerable to extinction. Here at Ourplace we are passionate about the welfare of all animals, including these beautiful creatures whose numbers are still in decline. Hedgehog Rescue Rehabilitation and Care Centre work tirelessly to rescue, treat and release hedgehogs back into a safe environment.
Hedgehog Rescue Rehabilitation and Care Centre respond immediately to rescue injured hedgehogs. A vet is called in straight away and the hedgehogs are monitored and cared for. Once fit and well they are released back into the wild.
These two came in as very small babies and had stayed with us a few weeks, gaining weight and giving us a chance to sort out their health issues. They had several ticks and needed worming. When they were 100% ready, we released them close to where they were found.
Hedgehog Rescue is now conducting its Annual Appeal. Only by continuing our huge effort and long-life commitment can these wonderful animals be given a safe, happy and contented life.
