Wetnose Animal Aid visit Oggles Hedgehog Rescue – Hedgehog Hospital – Dewsbury in Need o

On Sunday – I visited Vicky and Steve at Oggles Hedgehog Rescue based in Dewsbury on behalf of Wetnose Animal Aid.

I was overwhelmed by my findings. Vicky is working around the clock nursing fully grown hedgehogs and hoglets (babies) preparing them to return to the wild.

Her entire home has become a safe haven for sick and injured hedgehogs plus abandoned litters of hoglets.

Vicky is disabled, relying on crutches to walk, yet despite this her commitment to wildlife, remains her entire focus. Vicky has saved thousands of hogs that now live freely in the wild – having been raised or rescued by Vicky. Often people bring hogs to Vicky, as a result of finding them in their garden, needing medical attention.

It is Vicky’s dream to teach and mentor others to take care of sick hedgehogs and understand how a little effort such a long way in maintaining a better lifestyle for them. Hedgehogs ‘currently’ are not a protected species. They often die as a result of nesting under bonfires. They feel the cold and seek out warm places, for instance beneath sheds and log piles.
