Ways to help us:

Many casualties we receive often require weeks of treatment which can be very costly and extremely time consuming.   The costs of medical care, veterinary bills and food are always a major item for us.  We are rescuing, treating and returning to the wild countless hedgehogs that would die without help, and we do all this with no financial help from anywhere.

By supporting our work you will be making a direct contribution to the survival of our local wildlife.  We are always very grateful to receive a donation no matter how small and every little really does help.

‘Prickly Personalities’ – Tales from a Hedgehog Hospital

Since 1993, Lancashire Hedgehog Care has cared for thousands of sick and injured hedgehogs that needed help, and each one has its own story to tell.  Some can be hilarious – some can break your heart. 

‘Prickly Personalities’ is our first 32 page book of humorous poems that tell of some of the more light-hearted and memorable hedgehogs that have passed through our doors.

The poems have been written by the talented Sandra Duckworth and brilliantly illustrated by Richard Deverell.  All proceeds from the sale of this book will help provide care and treatment for future sick or injured hedgehogs that need our help.

Price £3.50p inc UK postage.  Can be purchased easily using Paypal to info.hedgehogcare@gmail.com or please send a cheque made payable to Lancs Hedgehog Care to the address opposite.
