During the Winter season 95% of the patients that arive at Brent Lodge are hedgehogs, many are either too small (under 600g) or too sick to survive the cold months ahead.
By the end of the season we could have cared for up to 350 hedgehogs, as you can imagine they eat us out of house and home.
There are many ways you can help us get through the Winter months just by kindly donating some basic necessities.
On average at the peak we get through up to 100 tins of cat/dog food a day……yes a day, so by kindly donating tins of pet food (meat based preferably not fish) you can help the hedgehogs build up their strength.
We also get through 1000’s of newspaper pages during Winter, not only do the hedgehogs need a bit of bed time reading but we use strips of newspaper to line the cages. This helps to keep the hoglets warm, safe and cosy, which will aid their recovery.
Alternatively you can kindly make a donation online by clicking on the ‘Donate’ button for us to purchase some items on your behalf.
If you think you can help us by providing simple necessities such as food and newspapers, your generosity will be much appreciated!!
Thank you in advance.
(This supply of newspapers will only last 3-5 weeks) (We can get through 100 tins a day)
