Snuffles Appeal 2019

Running Costs Appeal - Target £5,000

Snuffles needs your help with the day to day running costs of the centre.

The rescue is a “not for profit organisation” and relies on money raised from fundraising events and public donations. Each year we need your help to raise enough money to cover the day to day running costs (medication, heating/lighting, food, vet bills) and to purchase additional equipment such as incubators, bespoke hutches for the sick hedgehogs, heat pads and other items as required.
On average it costs approximately £50.00 per hedgehog from admission to release
Since the rescue opened in 2013 Claire Hunt has admitted over 700 hedgehogs. She has a maximum capacity of 30 hedgehogs at any one time in the critical care shed and has to keep the numbers low to ensure that she can offer each hedgehog the attention that it needs.
Thankfully we have a number of dedicated foster carers who look after the hogs once they are medically stable in outdoor hutches until they are ready for release.

Thank you to everyone who helped us to reach our 2018 target. The rescue could not continue to operate without public support.
