Could you foster a hedgehog?

Hedgehogs that are offered for fostering are in good health – not sick or injured – and would normally be cared for at the fosterer’s home between autumn and spring, during which time the hedgehog will be likely to hibernate.

In the spring you would return the hedgehog to us, for release into the wild. In this way, you can know that you have helped to preserve this species for future generations.

This is approximately a 5–6-month commitment and involves 2 training sessions at the rescue.

Please remember that hedgehogs are nocturnal and sensitive to noise, and so fostering is not suitable for busy families.
