re-home a hog scheme 

Type your paragraph here.

Part of Meltham Wildlife Rescues aims highlight that where possible we like rehabilitated wildlife to be released in to the wild. 

Here at the rescue we run a hedgehog rehoming scheme where you can apply to foster a hog. We will contact you within 72 hours (please allow for longer during summer months) and we will then have an informal chat to see your garden suitability. If we think you're garden is good to go, we will come have a look. 

After all the checks are complete, you'll be matched up with a hedgehog that came to us once it is fit and healthy. You'll also receive a hedgehog rewilding fact sheet to help you look after the hedgehog during its first few months in your garden. 

Unfortunately we do not rehome in gardens that are near a main road, where there are uncovered ponds or where slug pellets are used as these pose a serious risk to hedgehogs. If you'd like a chat with us about the scheme please contact us.
