Food donation feeds hungry sick hedgehogs
Feeding hungry hedgehogs is not an easy task and we are always in need of food donations at any time throughout the year. To run the rescue Claire uses the equivalent of up to 12 tins of dog or cat food a day, 84 tins a week and over 4368 tins a year. We rely on public generosity as well as buying food from our cash donations.
Thanks to Butchers Pet Care we now have enough food to last us for 6 months over the winter and into spring. When they kindly offered to donate a large quantity of dog food to us we were delighted but had no idea how we would store such a large amount.
Once again a couple of local businesses came to the rescue. Wheelers Timber and Builders Merchants in Erdington kindly agreed for the food to be delivered to them and they helped us transport it to the storage facility.
Cookes Storage Service based in Sutton Coldfield then came to the rescue with a kind offer of free storage.
Everyone has been so kind and generous and as a small hedgehog rescue we are so appreciative of all the help and support we receive.
This donation is a huge help but we get through so much food each year that food donations are always gratefully received. We feed the hedgehogs meat based cat or dog food in jelly, dry hedgehog food or meat based cat biscuits. We have a food collecting bin at Pool house Vets in Mere Green and Vets4Pets in New Oscott for anyone interested in making a donation.
