Help and advice

If you need help or advice then please post a message here and we will help

  • If you find a small hedgehog, or one lying out in the day.. DON'T IGNORE IT.. IT NEEDS HELP NOW! not tomorrow.
  • Do not leave it to see if it will go away.
  • Do not stick it under a hedge.
  • Pick it up, put it in a DEEP box or carrier with towels or an old fleece jumper,
  • KEEP IT WARM and quiet.
  • Call a rescue immediately
  • Please do not give it anything to eat until you have spoken to somebody, you can offer it a shallow bowl of water only.
  • Please remember these hedgehogs DO NOT ALWAYS HAVE THE LUXURY OF TIME.

A list of Hedgehog Rescue Centres can be found at:

I have just put a new page on the main website about Autumn Juveniles to try to help clear the confusion from some rescue centres about when juveniles can be safely left and when they should be taken into care

Thanks Derek. 

Just wanted to add that all the ones I've had in over the last month have needed some kind of treatment as they've been much weaker than the ones who came in during October or September.  Probably best to be safe than sorry with this even later lot. 

Very sad to think there's still little ones out there in this awful weather and I dread to think whats happening to the hoggies who are hibernating  :(

And they're still coming in - took in one weighing 360g 2 days ago and collecting one today that weighs only 250g. At least the message is getting through to people that hedgies under a certain weight need to be inside.

Thanks! Really useful! :D
I found a juvenile, and had to take it to a rescue centre, as it suffered from weight loss, it weighed 300g! It had it's adult looks, though it was small. I tell whether they are young or not from size!

You can't tell age by size. You can get a juvenile in weighing 350g that is perfectly well. You can get an adult in weighing 350g that is seriously ill.
