HELPING BRITISH WILD HEDGEHOGS

The Charity is a family run operation with help from the local community with mother and son are involved on a daily basis. Founded in April 2015 and rescuing wildlife since the 1980s. Over the last six years we have rescued, rehabilitated, and released over 1000 injured or orphaned hedgehogs.

The Charity rehabilitates Wild Hedgehogs which are sick, injured, underweight, or need help. Over 300 Hedgehogs were released back in to the wild in 2021.

Most of the costs involved in helping the hedgehogs at the Charity are currently covered by the members and some very generous people donating both money and their time. Notably the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Nine Lives Vets Redbourn who help out immensely.


The Charity opened an online shop in August 2018 which is managed in the hope that the funds made from the sale of the products will cover some of the daily costs of running the Charity, and hopefully help contribute to the future projects planned.

"This sanctuary is great the help you get from all is amazing! The volunteers work hard out of their own spare time rescuing our little endangered hogs <3 I spoke to a very helpful volunteer named Martin who gave me the correct advice with a hedgehog we found and helped out so much! Definitely recommend 👍"
