Story


I first came across the Wildlife Orphanage and Hedgehog Hospital via Twitter @Wildlifeorphan1. The Rescue is located near Selby in North Yorkshire.

In January 2018 they had three admissions which especially touched my heart. First there was a hedgehog known as Ice Cold Alex who was found frozen to the ground. His paws had frostbite and were red raw and very sore. He also had an eye infection and was in a critical condition. Another hedgehog was Arctic Archie who was also found frozen and starving to death on a main road in sub zero temperatures.

Both hedgehogs went straight into intensive care at the wildlife hospital where they received urgent life saving treatment. The third admission was a little female, Dora. She was also found in freezing cold weather. Dora was starving to death and was severely underweight. She also had pneumonia and internal parasites.

At one point I really feared the worst for these very poorly hedgehogs. They were terribly ill and it seemed impossible they would survive. However, and against all odds, they recovered and were nursed back to full health. Thankfully, they will soon be released back into the wild.

As hedgehog numbers are rapidly declining, the work undertaken by the Wildlife Orphanage is crucial. They move heaven and earth to help not only hedgehogs but other wild creatures, many of which would have suffered and died if it wasn't for their help and dedication.

The Rescue desperately need our support to help cover their daily running costs such as food, bedding, medications like antibiotics and parasite control for the hedgehogs, heating bills, fuel, cleaning materials etc.

However they cannot survive without the kindness and generosity of people's donations. Please help the Wildlife Orphanage to help these little orphans and especially that most endearing but endangered creature, the hedgehog. Thank you so much.

    Staff said I could earn some money to help Annette with caring for all the new admissions. I've been very busy 'helping' with the housework today. I am one exhausted cat tonight. Lots of love, Milly.
