Not all hedgehogs will hibernate, as our winters become milder the hedgehogs will continue to stay awake. They will only hibernate if the night temperatures are regularly below freezing and stay that way, but as they don't hedgehogs either don't hibernate at all or if they do they will sleep and the wake, sleep and wake. Hedgehogs can successfully hibernate from 450g.  

So we no longer take hedgehogs in during the winter months based only on their weight. While its mild its best to keep them in the wild. So if a hedgehog is out at night and not injured it can remain in the wild. 

When A Hedgehog Needs Help

Hedgehogs will come out in the day at this time of the year if unwell or injured, so they would need to come into the rescue, for more information please see our Found A Hedgehog Page 

Can we come and see the hedgehogs

Please note that we are unable to offer visits to the hospital or show hedgehogs to visitors. Open days are the only times we allow the public into the hospital area of the building.  Our next open day will be on 5th May 2024 - 11am - 4pm
