Hogs Love Dogs!

If you read our last post you'll know we met the lovely people from Mutts In Distress (a local dog rescue centre - situated in Little Hallingbury near Bishop's Stortford) at the A120 vets open day.

Whist talking they kindly offered to donate a few bags of cat biscuits to the hedgehogs. This evening I'm please to say I've collected enough to allow me to sprinkle the tinned cat food the hogs enjoy with tasty, crunchy cat biscuits for months.

So I would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to Mutts in Distress for supporting our work in this way. Without the help and generosity of people such as this we would never be able to care for the hedgehogs we rescue.

I'd also like to add that if you are ever looking for a new K9 friend please visit the gallery of Mutts looking for new homes by clicking on this link.

P.S. To show you just how much hogs love their cat biscuits here is Millie (kindly sponsored by Elizabeth Happer) enjoying her tea a week of so ago.


  1. Love that video! Very satisfied sounding munching and lip smacking!
    Lovely that a dog charity was able to help hoglets - but while hogs might love dogs, sadly the reverse doesn't always apply. My two are on leads on leads while out in the garden doing their late night patrol as we've been having regular visits from a hog.

  2. Great to read you are keeping them on leads. I get calls from people telling me their dog has caught another hedgehog and ask if I can help the hog. If the dog attacks hogs then they need to do exactly what you are doing or find another solution. Prevention is the key word here...
