Every year, Folly Wildlife Rescue admit hundreds of injured, orphaned and sick hedgehogs from across Kent and Sussex.Many of these have been injured in netting, while others have fallen down holes or drains, or been hit by cars; attack by dogs is also on the increase. Additionally, illnesses such as lungworm, mange and ringworm are common, and every year we admit large numbers of underweight ‘autumn juvenile’ hedgehogs that are too small to hibernate; these remain in care until the spring.
Many of these injuries and illnesses are life-threatening, and it can take weeks, and sometimes months, to bring them back to full health, so they can be returned to the wild.
To help pay for their veterinary treatment and care, Folly Wildlife Rescue operate a hedgehog adoption programme, whereby members of the public can sponsor one of the resident disabled animals at the centre, and in doing so, help pay not only for the adopted animal’s care, but for the care and treatment of the many other poorly hedgehogs here too.
You can adopt your chosen hedgehog by either, visiting our Online Shop in the Main Menu, or by clicking on the image below to download the printable form in .PDF format (best viewed/downloaded on a personal computer).
An adoption pack makes a great gift for a birthday or Christmas (or you can always treat yourself!) and is a very practical way to help hedgehogs in distress. As well as the illnesses and injuries already mentioned, the species is now seriously threatened by loss of habitat and housing developments, increased road traffic and unsympathet farming practices; in fact, hedgehog numbers have crashed from an estimated 30 million in the 1960s to just a million today.

All adoptions are for a period of one year, after which you’ll be sent a renewal reminder. If you wish to do so, you’ll then receive an update and new photograph of your adopted animal!
