Nelson and Mrs X

Although HQ has been closed since the end of June our work looking after hedgehogs has continued. We received a phone call from the fab Roebucks vets in Stevenage. They had two hedgehogs who had unfortunately lost an eye each. As this left them very open to attack on their blind side they needed to go into a secure garden.

Thankfully we have a good network of volunteers and two of our fosterers have taken on the challenge of looking after Nelson and Mrs X (she has still to be named).

Nelson is the smaller hog (300 grams) and Mrs X is the larger (600 grams)

Nelson is now settled into his new home and as you can see has a lovely new hutch with a run all to himself. Once the garden is fully escape proof he'll have the run of the garden, which is full of lovely thick bushes and great places to forage.

Mrs X has gone to a garden and joins Vince who is partially paralysed. However this doesn't stop him getting into the house and hiding behind the washing machine!

In readiness for their new tenant new houses were created for Vince and his new lady Mrs X.

Homes being covered so they are snug, dry and warm ready for winter

As you can see we rely heavily on the support of vets such as Roebucks and our volunteer carers and fosterers. All of whom support us by giving their time for free and often support our work financially.

So I'd like to take this opportunity like to thank Elaine for taking Mrs X, Wayne for making two fab homes and John for taking Nelson. 

Lastly if you'd like to support our work you can do so by purchasing your office supplies using this link. Each time you make a purchase we are given a commission on the sale and it doesn't cost you a penny!
