To raise funds to buy food for the hedgehogs in or care at Cuan Wildlife Rescue. We admit over 500 a year and some are overwintered with us.

Each year we admit over 2340 wild animals and birds, this includes over 500 hedgehogs. Many are young and too small to survive the winter months ahead.

We only release them when they reach a certain weight as if they are to small they will die during hiberanation. This means we will overwinter many with us, before releasing them in the spring.

We feed them on cat food and can get through over 25 tins each day! They are also fed some dried food as this is important for their dental care!

We are trying to raise money for us to stock up on this food for the winter months  so we can feed the many hedgehogs which will be in our care.

We currently have 52 Hedgehogs overwintering with us at the centre and week by week this is increasing.

    Mite Hog

    Well he is now mite free and feeling more like a normal hog again, he is eating very well and gaining weight so a happy ending! as soon as things warm up he can be released to carry on his life back in the wild as he should be!

    Overwintering Hogs!

    I will try and keep you updated as much as I can about our hogs, we currently have just under 50 with us at the moment each of which needs care on a daily basis.

    This includes cleaning out of the pens, feeding, treating any wonds & administering medication.

    Over the corse of the winter each of these spiky little creatures costs between £300 - £400 and more often than not it is because of us humans that thay are admitted.

Cuan Wildlife Rescue

Charity Reg No: 1096812

Cuan Wildlife is a wildlife rescue centre where we take in sick, injured or orphaned wild animals and birds, with the ultimate aim of nursing them back to health. Once fully recovered, great emphasis is placed on returning them to the wild. Founded in 1990, Cuan Wildlife has grown in both size and number of admissions. Last year we admitted 2340 wild animals and birds. We have to raise over £110,000 each year to continue our work with the injured and sick wildlife.
