November 2019 

Very Sorry to say that Pricklepad is closed to any more admissions until further notice. We are full and have no more room but also Moira, the Hedgehog Lady is recuperating from recent major surgery.

If you find a sick or injured hedgehog please ring the 

'British Hedgehog Preservation Society' on their 24 hour helpline for first aid advice and your nearest carer.

The number is 01584 890801.

Please don't delay, many hogs look ok but are very ill and need urgent attention.
