June 2012 up-date

It's been a busy month so I wanted to up-date you on a few things that have happened.

Cyclops was given the all clear last week by our vets (A120 Medivet) and last night (14th June) he went to stay with one of our carers for assessment. As long as he shows signs of being a hedgehog again he will be going to a new enclosed garden. We don't encourage people to keep hedgehogs in enclosed gardens (as it can cause stress). However because Cyclops only has vision on one side he is very open to predators and unseen dangers, so he has to go into a closed environment. I'll let you know how he gets on.

On the 10th of this month we attended the A120 Medivet open day. The event was to raise money for Mutts In Distress. This is a charity that is dear to my heart because it is where our dog Tasha came from. They rescue dogs and care for them until they find a new home. They have also started to support our work by donating cat food.

Now you may be wondering why I've included a shot of a row of shiny bikes. Well Mutts In Distress recently gained some new supporters in the form of a bikers group. This group have not only donated food but also money to help cover vet bills. And on the day around a dozen bikers turned up to show their support.

Last but not least I'd like to introduce you to Millie, out latest hog. An adult female she was taken into the A120 Medivets and was found to be very under weight and suffering from a very upset stomach. Although this didn't stop her escaping from her box and making a run for it. Once caught she didn't appear to be too upset because she soon tucked into some tasty biscuits. We'd like to thank Elizabeth Happer for adopting Millie and donating towards the cost of her care.
