Our mission - Rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured or orphaned hedgehogs in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

URGENT APPEAL

The UK has seen a rapid decline in hedgehogs with numbers falling by about half since the turn of the century which means hedgehog numbers are likely to stand at under a million.

In 2020 Hedgehogs were included on the Red List for British Mammals which means they are now classified as vulnerable to extinction.

Holderness Hedgehog Hospital (HHH) was set up in 2016 to help address a shortage of local specialist rescues in the area, as well as to help educate people on the species.

Our aims are to educate the public and to rescue, rehabilitate and release as many hedgehogs as possible.

Since 2016 we have grown and grown and after a lot of hard work we became a charity in the summer of 2018.

We now have a number of satellite rescues within the East Riding including: Keyingham, Burton Pidsea and Skeffling.

Everyone involved with HHH is a volunteer, without their continued support and commitment we would not be able to continue.

 

 

We have 3 assessors who triage and administer lifesaving first aid to hedgehogs that come into the rescue, plus a large group of amazing volunteers.

Our educational talks are very important to us. We have spoken to groups such as schools, scouts, WI and wildlife groups.

These allow us to engage with the public and get them involved in trying to save our prickly friends.

If you would like us to visit your organisation, then please contact us.

Consistent fundraising is important to ensure every hedgehog which comes through the rescue has the best opportunity in life.

HHH is self-funded and we usually host events such as craft fairs, take part in car boots, have regular raffles, have food donation bins in supermarkets  and ask local business for support.

 

It's not too late to purchase one of our 2023 calendars, we have about 10 calendars left.
