Frequently Asked Questions
Can I adopt / rehome a hedgehog from you? No.
We always aim to release a hedgehog back to where it was found. If this is not possible, we will only release
a hedgehog back to an area where we have records of a known existing population. We follow the latest BHPS advice for releasing hedgehogs.
Can I visit Wild Hogs Hedgehog Rescue? Yes, we open the rescue to
tours at our open days. Please follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with
our events. We are not able to accept visitors at other times.
Can I volunteer at Wild Hogs Hedgehog Rescue? When opportunities arise, we welcome volunteers
who can commit to helping us on a regular basis. Information and an application form can be
sent to you on request.
Can I do Work Experience at Wild Hogs Hedgehog Rescue? With prior arrangement, we welcome students
over 16 years old studying in a relevant subject to apply for a work experience
placement with us. We are unable to accept students under 16 years old. Information
and an application form can be sent to you on request.
Can my child volunteer with Wild Hogs as part of their Duke of
