Donate to the rescue
There are a number of ways you can donate:
Donate supplies of food and consumables in person at the rescue (during opening hours 1pm to 5pm, 7 days a week),
Donate money so we can buy supplies by using our virtual shop,
Donate directly to our local vets so we have money in our account to pay for medical treatment,
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, GoCat kitten biscuits or Whiskas milk pockets in chicken flavour.
Live Mealworms (please let me know if you are getting these as we will have to prepare the storage)
Mince meat – raw or cooked
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).
Flannelette Sheets – Please no bedding or blankets, as we CANNOT use this for the hedgehogs.
Newspapers – a large number needed as all hedgehogs need cleaning out daily.
1ml and 10ml Syringes
Saline – we use 3 litres per week
25 mm Blue Hypodermic Needles – 2 boxes required per week
* The value of medical items can be donated using our 'buy supplies' page *
We use two local vets to treat the sick and injured hedgehogs in our care. Medical treatment is not cheap, so feel free to contact either of the vets below to make a payment to the 'Chorley Hedgehog Rescue' account, so the money is there when we need it.
