it's always a nervous moment when a patient is released after a period in care, particularly birds. the red kite that we have been nursing for a some weeks who had a minor keel fracture and tricomoniosis has now got a second chance in the wild. ... See MoreSee Less

perhaps too late for this year but who might be interested in a "sponsor an overwintering hedgehog" as a Christmas gift for a hog lover next year? as each one will eat it's way through at least £50 in food whilst with us ( as they are too small to hibernate they have to be looked after until the spring) not to mention veterinary treatment, bedding and heating we were thinking of a £25 card, which of course will have a hedgehog picture or illustration that you could purchase which confirms the gift has been donated. anyone got any ideas or suggestions ? 🤔😀 ...

Good idea I would buy one

Sounds like a fab idea . . Sue Schwar Ros Brown i have a box of plastic keyrings you could have ( think at least 50 ) maybe add photo and like a little certificate could be in the key ring. .

I would support this. Brilliant !

Brilliant idea. I brought one to the hospital today who sadly didn’t survive 😢 I’d be happy to get involved and help promote

Great idea. What about a little hoglet soft toy / keyring to go with the card for the gift receiver?

Lovely idea! Xx♥️

I will

Fab idea!❤️

Brilliant!! Shall we ask the Echo??🤣

Think this is a brilliant idea!

Great idea :D xx

👍

Great idea 👍🏻

Good idea !

Alexandra Collins is this where to have received your hegehogs to rehome in your garden?

the fox with it's head almost severed by a snare is making a good recovery , there is just one small area , which was the most damaged, still slightly oozing but we have been able to remove most of the stitches which extend right around the neck. we hope to be able to return the fox soon. ...

And these snares are legal! Its a disgrace that any animal is allowed to suffer like this! So glad this beautiful fox has made a good recovery, let's hope luck is on his side when he is returned to the wild again.

So very glad this was found in time.. thank you

Well done guys

That's an amazing recovery, well done for your care and love

Poor little baby, makes me so mad 😡 can’t thankyou enough for all your hard work x

Poor fox- awful that this happens in this day & age!!

Poor thing. Hope it makes a full recovery. 🦊😢

Omg are snares still legal!!???

Well done. Thank you for all the caring and skill and love ghats you give to every one of your beautiful patients. 💖💖

Joedy Mcnair😍

Where was he found? x

Great news ! Hope he's better soon

Poor little mite. Get well soon foxy. Xx

Oh bless hope makes a full recovery 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Poor love 😟

Hope he's better soon

Thank you for the update xx i wish him well xx

Tom has done an amazing job with this fox .. ❤️

That's amazing, and what amazing people you are

grrrr makes me so bloody angry, the money and time that has been put into helping this beautiful animal because of some twisted person or people setting a snare,

Glad this poor fox was saved just wish these inbreds would disappear from earth

I hope the scum that set this snare get caught theirselves and die's slowly

We would like to say a massive thank you to our wonderful supporters. We don't have the final figure yet and probably won't until after Christmas, but it looks like you have managed to raise around £4,000 for the hospital from the giving Tuesday campaign. Thank you very much indeed. ... See MoreSee Less

Thankyou for all your help xx

Great job. Thank you for everything you do for the animals. 💖💖
