Ways You Can Help

Our rescue is entirely non-profit, meaning we need help from you to remain open for more hedgehogs and tenrecs to come into our care. All animals go to our foster volunteers who temporarily care for our animals whilst they await a home. 

Become a temporary haven for hedgehogs and tenrecs in need by joining our fostering program. As a foster caregiver, you provide a nurturing environment, helping these adorable creatures flourish while awaiting their forever homes. It's a rewarding experience that directly contributes to their well-being and prepares them for a loving family. See set up requirements needed before applications here.

Give a hedgehog or tenrec a forever home by choosing adoption. Our available animals are ready to become cherished members of your family, each with a unique personality and story. By adopting, you not only gain a loving companion but also play a vital role in providing a second chance at happiness for these wonderful creatures.

Make a meaningful impact on the lives of our permanent foster hedgehogs by sponsoring their ongoing care. Your sponsorship ensures they receive the necessary medical attention, food, and love they need to thrive. By becoming a sponsor, you forge a special connection with these hedgehogs and contribute directly to their well-being. Find out more about our permanent fosters here.

We often run auctions to raise additional funds for our rescue. For this we need donations of items that are unwanted by yourself, but may be a treasure for others, these do not need to be hog related. Look out on our Facebook group for when we advertise for donations or when we run our next auction.
