hi Godiva57

I am guessing you are in England. Would the RSPCA be able to help – their website does give some advice about wildlife and a contact number if you are unable to reach a local rehabilitator

Up here where I live in North of Scotland, the nearest specialist hedgehog rescue centre is around 50 miles away, but the Scottish SPCA will come – if their local centre cannot treat a wild animal, they will take it to the national wildlife rescue centre. Last November, before I knew there was a local hog rescue in the Highlands, I called out the SSPCA when I found an underweight hog ‘sunbathing’ in my garden in the middle of the day.
