Snuffles Charity Partnership with Ark Wildlife
Ark Wildlife are experts in the field of wildlife care. They have been in business for over 25 years and provide a range of items to support all wildlife.
Visit their website to see the range of products and advice on how to protect and preserve our wildlife population.
We particularly recommend their dry "Ark hedgehog food original" food as it contains all the nutrients needed to maintain the health and wellbeing of this iconic and much loved creature. It also comes in a range of sizes from 1kg to 40kg. If you put food out regularly for your local hedgehogs, bulk buying might be a more cost effective way of doing it.
If you purchase anything from Ark Wildlife and mention Snuffles Hedgehog Rescue we will receive a 5% donation of the cost of your purchase.
Every little helps!
Me and my fellow sniffer dogs are really good at finding all sorts of things. We’ve already helped find ivory, leopard skins, shark fins, and pangolin scales in the fight against wildlife crime and smuggling. So why not help hedgehogs?
Hedgehogs are under threat when land is cleared for development. Although developers should look for animals at risk and move them, it’s easier said than done. Hedgehogs spend most of the day curled up in nests and the long grass, shrubs and hedgerows they prefer to nest in make them really hard to see. Hedgehogs are often killed or injured by machinery when land is cleared or ‘tidied up’.
I’m helping PTES prove that detection dogs like me could be a better way to find nesting hedgehogs, so they can be moved out of harm’s way. My sense of smell is incredible, but I do need training to pick up the scent of hedgehogs correctly.
