Brockworth Hedgehog Rescue is a home based rescue, if you have found a hedgehog that needs help please call on 07789 268296, please call to arrange a convenient time to bring the hedgehog to us and please never leave a hedgehog at the gate or front door of the rescue address, Vicki works as well as runs the rescue so there will be times when the rescue is not manned.
COVID -19 - Admissions process - Once a time has been agreed, the admission will be dealt with at the rescue gate, there will be no access into the garden or hospital building, social distancing measures and hand sanitiser are in place at the gate.
Please note that we are unable to offer visits to the hospital or show hedgehogs to children, once safe to do so we will organise an open day as both were cancelled this year due to covid regulations, Open days are the only times we allow the public into the hospital building.

CURRENT HEDGEHOG WINTER WEIGHT ADVICE
HIBERNATION - Hedgehogs will hibernate once the night temperatures are consistently below 5 degrees and we are getting regular frosts. The minimum weight for hibernation is 450g which would be at the stated weather conditions, as rescue we do prefer them to be heavier (at least 500g-600g).
At the moment - (October 2020) we are taking in small hedgehogs that are out at night only if they are smaller than 350g. this weight will increase as the night temperatures fall.
