Urgent Need for Foster Carers for Underweight Hedgehogs
During the last few weeks admissions to Snuffles Hedgehog Rescue has increased dramatically and space is now very limited for the very sick hedgehogs that need round the clock care.
Once a hedgehog is medically stable but underweight it needs to go into a hutch in a quiet shed or garage where there is a power supply to run a small heater.
At this time of year when the outside temperature is falling rapidly we need the indoor temperature to be kept above 5 degrees Celsius otherwise the hedgehog will go into hibernation. If it hibernates below the recommended weight it is likely to die.
If you live in the Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands area and you have a suitable quiet and secure heated area and you would be prepared to have a hutch and provide food, water and clean the hedgehog out every day until it reaches a healthy weight and ready to be moved to an outdoor hutch to hibernate we would love to hear from you.
