Important Don’ts if you find a sick  hedgehog

If you’ve found a hedgehog you feel needs attention please ring Joanne on 07880637618

We can’t always answer the phone but please leave a message and someone will get back to you. Until we do, please follow the steps outlined below

We operate in and around the South Tyneside, Sunderland, Washington, Chester le Street, Gateshead areas but if you’re not sure if we cover your area, please contact us and we’ll pass you on to someone who can help.


We are always looking for new volunteers. Does fostering an injured hedgehog, prior to release sound interesting?
