Donate to the rescue 

There are a number of ways you can donate:

  1. Donate supplies of food and consumables in person at the rescue (during opening hours 1pm to 5pm, 7 days a week),

  2. Donate money so we can buy supplies by using our virtual shop,

  3. Donate directly to our local vets so we have money in our account to pay for medical treatment,

  4. Donate your time by becoming a volunteer

We are always in a constant need of supplies as it takes a lot to get the hedgehogs in our care happy and healthy.  For a detailed list, please see below:

  • Cat Food - Butchers Classic chicken flavour (available from Spar, 34 Spendmore Lane, Coppull, Chorley PR7 4NY).  We require 60 - 70 tins PER DAY to keep all our hedgehogs fed. 

  • Cat/kitten Biscuits - Tesco complete kitten cat biscuits chicken flavour.

  • Cooked chicken thighs or drumsticks - raw or cooked

  • A/D Critical Care - high protein, high fat which can be bought online, in pet shops or in vets  (we use 8 tins per day during summer for the poorly baby hoglets).

 * The value of food items can be donated using our 'buy supplies' page  or you buy from our Amazon Wish List *

  • Towels

  • Dressing Gowns

  • Fleeces, sweatshirts & polo shirts (no knitted items)

  • Flannelette Sheets (no bedding or blankets, as we can NOT use these for the hedgehogs)

  • Newspapers – a large number needed as all hedgehogs need cleaning out daily (we can NOT use shredded paper)

  • Kitchen Roll

Medical Supplies
  • 1ml and 10ml Syringes

  • Latex gloves

  • Saline – we use 3 litres per week

  • 25 mm Blue Hypodermic Needles – 2 boxes required per week
