Story

Tracey Stevenson runs Hedgelina's Home for Hogs which is a hedgehog rescue near Heckington, Lincolnshire. She does an amazing job, helping out lots of hedgehogs every year who people find in need. Many are critical and require around the clock care to give them the best chance of life. In the peak of the summer this year she had 113 hedgehogs - all of whom are kept in her house. Since February this year 247 hedgehogs have been through her house. To say space was tight was an under statement!

Tracey would love to have a formal hoggery - an insulated out building with electricity - so that she can have her house (and bedroom!) back for her family including her Husband and 2 daughters. The more money that can be raised to go towards the hoggery, the more hogs she can help and potentially she'll be able to seek volunteers to help her manage the huge number of hogs in need.

I want to help Tracey to seek the largest hoggery that she can fit in her garden as she is a wonderful, caring person who needs help but is too humble to ask too much of her supporters. Tracey always puts others and hedgehogs before herself - meaning she is often in demand and her health has paid the price. It would be wonderful for her to have some formal facilities to enhance what she does, help more hogs and have suitable premises to work from where volunteers can help ease the workload that comes with caring for the UK's only spiny mammal.

    Thank you to everyone so far who has donated or shared. Hedgehogs are vulnerable to extinction so rescues like Tracey are doing an important job to help hogs. At the moment, Tracey has had to close her doors. She is having to turn away hogs daily. This is why a hoggery is desperately needed. Space is needed to give each hog a chance. Here is a photo of my 4 current foster hoglets from Tracey. They were waiting for their home to be cleaned out and somehow one ended up on top of the others! They are siblings so share their nest for now.
