    Hi, is there any need for a hog rescue and sanctuary around whalley, nr Clitheroe? I have had a lovely little hog visiting since spring and it seems to have stopped coming. I think maybe somethings happened to it. This got me thinking I could provide a safe haven and rehab centre for rescued hedgehogs. I am retired and have enough room to do this in my garden and sheds etc.
    How would I go about this if it was something that is needed in the area? Alternatively, I am also willing to provide a foster home for hogs that need feeding during winter etc.
    I’d be very grateful for any advice on this please.

    Hi Donsue45

    Your best bet would be to contact your nearest carer/s and have a chat with them about it. It would be a good idea to do some voluntary work with an existing carer/rehabilitator to start with anyway. You can get contact details by ringing BHPS on 01584 890801

    I found this a while back (things to think about before setting up as a hedgehog rescue) which you might find useful:

    Good luck. Let us know how you get on.
