Hedgehog Helpline

Rescue – Rehabilitate – Release


Rescuing Hedgehogs Since 1988

Hedgehog Helpline rescue sick injured and orphaned wild hedgehogs from accross South Wales with the aim of releasing them back into the wild.

Hedgehog Helpline was founded in 1988 and registered as a charity in 1995. We are run and lead entirely by volunteers who donate their time to assist in protecting this wonderful species who in 2020 were placed on the red list for Britain’s mammals as vulnerable to extinction. We have seen their numbers plummet by millions over the past 40 years.

Each field hospital is overseen by our vet and equipped to deal with all admissions professionally and with the hedgehogs interest and welfare at the heart of everything we do.


Helpline is Always Open

Our field hospitals and telephone helpline are open 365 days per year, including Christmas day.  (Telephone helpline 10 am to 7 pm daily)

We rescue an average of 1200 hedgehogs per year.

We do not receive funding; we are reliant on donations from the public and the occasional corporate donation.

We are unique in we are run and lead by volunteers, no one receives expenses or payment for their services.
