Toby is released
Toby rescue hedgehog has been released back to the wild. He was found as a baby hoglet with an injured leg and missing claw, which had caused his toe to get infected and swollen. It has mended well and it certainly hasn’t stopped him digging - he is a real little digger! After spending a week getting used to the outdoors in an outdoor run, he was fully released back to the wild to a lovely big York garden. Good luck out there Toby! x

Oliver hedgehog is doing well
Oliver rescue  hoglet wasn’t putting on weight as he should (around 10g a day) and so I sent off a poo sample to a larger wildlife rescue for testing. He has lungworm and ringworm. He started his treatments a few days ago and has been feeling much better. He has put 20g on each day for the past few days. He will have weekly injections for 3 weeks and has finished his first course of lungworm treatment. Another in 10 days time. He is too small to be released before Winter now the weather has turned colder so Oliver will now stay with me and be released in the Spring.

New arrival Toby
This is Toby, the latest arrival at my York hedgehog rescue. Toby has been cared for by the York RSPCA since he was found as a tiny baby hoglet and has come to me for the last stage of his rehabilitation. He has a leg injury and had lost a claw and his toe had become infected (see front left paw). It is healed over and I am going to see how he manages in the outdoor run. Hopefully it will be healed enough not to need amputation and for him to survive okay in the wild. Signs are good as he was trying to dig his way out of the run last night. He is really feisty and a good weight so fingers crossed he can be fully released to the wild soon. www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com

Roly gets a taste of the outdoors!
Roly hedgehog has now been released into an outdoor run. Roly was found as a baby hoglet at 200g and then developed a terrible case of ringworm. He is now fully back to health and has been released into the outdoor run to get used to the outdoors prior to his full return to the wild, hopefully at the weekend :-)

Spike has been ‘born free’
Spike hedgehog has been released back to the wild. She was found as a tiny hoglet in daylight on a doorstep. She has been with me for a couple of months getting up to the required release weight. She has now been released to a lovely garden in York who will be providing food and water for at least the first few weeks whilst she gets used to her new environment. Good luck out there Spike! www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com

Four new hedgehogs have arrived!
Four new hedgehogs have arrived with me for the final stage of their rehabilitation back to the wild. This hedgehog was found as an orphaned hoglet absolutely covered in fleas (hedgehogs rarely carry fleas and when they do it is a sign of illness). She is now over 600g and will spend some time with me in an outdoor run getting used to the wild. She will then be fully released back to the wild.
I make silver jewellery to help with the costs of running my rescue centre and paying for the food, medications and equipment they need - www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com

Little silver hedgehog back open
Just got back from a lovely week in Mallorca and my jewellery shop helping to rescue poorly hedgehogs is back open. How about these earrings as a Christmas present for a wildlife lover? I did keep an eye out in Mallorca for hedgehogs but sadly only saw a squished one. They have a different species of hedgehog in Mallorca so I was very keen to see a live one. I imagine that the shop will get busy now in the run up to Christmas - all proceeds help my work rescuing poorly and injured wild hedgehogs www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com
