Hedgehog Crazy!

13 Jul 2014

It’s gone baby hedgehog crazy!!! Over the past week we have had endless calls about teenage size hedgehogs getting into difficulty. Most have come in dehydrated and on Friday night we had 3 in with maggots crawling all over them. Unfortunately we had to put 2 to sleep but with this little man we managed […]

Fox with Mange Rescued

Hare Release

11 Oct 2012

Many months ago we took in a beautiful hare, after weeks of bottle feeding, she started to eat solids. Eating on her own was such a relief for us, as she soon started to pile on the weight and it was an end to hours of bottle feeding, not easy when we both work for a living! Rearing baby […]
