Our Permanent Fosters

Meet our five permanent foster hedgehogs at Happy Quills, whose journey to forever homes has led them to the loving embrace of dedicated foster carers. Please consider sponsoring these spiky companions to help play a vital role in ensuring their continued care and happiness. Your support can make a lasting difference in their lives at our rescue.


Maple arrived at Happy Quills needing care for her flaky skin, which cleared up with a skincare pack, but subsequent vet visits revealed malnourishment and an aggressive lump. Despite a successful operation, she remains a permanent foster due to potential health issues.


Due to his age, specific care needs, and disgruntled disposition, Mikey will remain a permanent foster, receiving essential care and support from sponsors to ensure he lives out his remaining years in a safe and loving environment.


Miles, who arrived at Happy Quills in September 2023, quickly became known for his endearing puppy dog eyes and captivating smile. Despite his initial shyness, he gradually opened up under the care of his foster carer. After being adopted, Miles sadly had to return due to his owner's severe allergies, but now, at around 4 years old, he's found a permanent home at Happy Quills where he'll be cherished and pampered for the rest of his days.


Russell arrived a few weeks before his 4th birthday. He loves three things; his bed he came with, all kinds of food, and lastly being very messy on his wheel! He is a sweet boy that isn't camera shy, loves running on his wheel in the evening, and eating soggy biscuits with whatever side dish on offer that night! He is a permanent hedgehog due to his age but is enjoying his retirement in a loving permanent home.


Olive is a happy little lady with a particular liking for soaked and mushed kibble. She loves her wheel she likes to stroll rather than run though but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t leave a lovely poopy wheel each morning. Every night she moves her toys into specific places in her viv her foster carer is obviously just not tidy enough! 

Olive is a tiny lady whose special needs mean she will stay in the care of Happy Quills and can’t be adopted.
