We are a small charity run totally by volunteers. We are a very busy rescue and we rely on the generosity of our sponsors and funding raising events. Every little helps.One sachet of cat food feeds a baby hedgehog for the day.


As we take in more and more sick and injured casualties, we need more specialists caging so that we can give each and every creature the type of environment they need to improve their stay.


We are in the process of expanding our facility and there are always happy for individuals or companies to sponsor cages, aviaries, release sites and essential equipment.

As well as working on the front line we give talks and show our stunning wildlife to a variety of groups and schools - Wildlife Rocks Me Talks. We believe that a better understanding of these creatures will promote not only tolerance but a willingness to integrate them into our lives.


Children will become the custodians of our planet and we hope, through our talks, will have a better understanding of and take an interest in our wonderful wildlife as they take on that ultimate role.


We raise funds by donations, our newsletter, attending County Shows, Car boot sales, selling on eBay, Fairs, and our shop.

    Many schools have charities for a year. Why not suggest us to your school? As a wildlife rescue we deal daily with casualties that happen through a lack of understanding. We see fear and misunderstanding of the creatures that surround us. schoolBut actually they all have very special roles and purposes. By sharing our experience with children and showing them some of the wildlife that surrounds them, we hope that in the future these would-be custodians of our planet will make good decisions and ensure our survival alongside our precious wildlife in a natural balance


    We could have a stall at your school fete. One way you can help us is to organize your own fundraising events This could be at school, work or at home with family and friends. We have suggested a few ideas below to help with your fundraising on our behalf. READ MORE

How we started


Whilst out walking with my dog in the early 1980's I found a small hedgehog stuck in a fence. He was too fat to go through and his prickles wouldn't let him go back.
