    The night I rescued Calvin, I rang the hospital first (where Calvin is now, and answerphone said that they are temporarily closed) so I rang another one just as far away as the one I like – but, thankfully, they didn’t get back to me – instead I got a call back from the first one, and she took Calvin in and then Sweetpea a week later (after a poo sample).

    Just reading up about the one who never got back to me, they might have closed last year as no updates on their facebook since aug 18, and anyway, people who bring hedgehogs in, they ring them up, text and email them to find out how things are going, and they rarely get back to them, even after 2 years later, people still want to know how the hedgehogs are, – and they don’t release back to the areas they came from. They’ve got a place there own place they use – and also they kept some of their hedgehogs outside in hutches due to be released (which is ok), but then someone stole all of them – and perhaps after that they might have closed as there was no more updates after that incident.

    Thank God they didn’t get back to me, if they are still open.

    There facebook page is full of different people asking about the hedgehogs they bought in, and they don’t even respond back to them, not even to say ‘it’s ok’ or ‘it’s pts’

    On one reply, they just replied back ‘it’s not your hedgehog it’s wild, if you haven’t heard from us it probably didn’t make it.’

    The response was just so lacking of empathy.

    They might be wild, but it doesn’t stop us from loving them and wanting to know about their welfare.
