DONATIONS - HOW YOU CAN HELP
UNWANTED BIRTHDAY OR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS:
If you have received gifts which aren't exactly your cup of tea, please don't push them to the back of the cupboard. What could be better than helping little hedgehogs and other wildlife orphans?
We are always in need of good quality items to raise funds for our Wildlife Orphanage and Hedgehog Hospital.
Perfumes, aftershave, slippers, gloves, scarves, toiletries, gift sets, books and CD's
(diamond rings and Rolex's also very welcome haha)
ADDRESS: The Wildlife Orphanage, Low Mill, York Road, Barlby. YO8 5JP
The most direct way of supporting our work is by making a donation.
Caring for wild animals and birds is expensive, moreso the orphans, who need specialist foods and lots of warmth. Equipment, incubators, heatpads, syringes, needles, fluids and medication is also very expensive and hedgehogs need quite a lot of medication to make them well again.
There are trips back and forth to the vets and also to pick animals up. Also there are journeys, many of them lengthy to release animals where they were found. We get calls from far and wide and can spend hundreds of £££'s just in fuel alone.
There are NO paid positions at the Wildlife Orphanage and every penny donated is spent on the wildlife in our care.
Please read on to see how you can help.
Choose any item from our Amazon Wishlist - it will then be sent directly to us and will help the animals in our care immediately.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE AREA....
Perhaps you could arrange to drop any of the following off to help us:-
Logs, coal, and fire lighters are needed in the colder months as the Wildlife cabin is heated by a multi fuel stove which is burning 24/7 in Winter.
Furry hats are very comforting to some baby animals and birds. Ducklings also find comfort in feather dusters
We now have a good stock of towels and fleeces.
We are not able to use things like pillows or duvets as wild animals have a habit of tearing things apart !
On the 1st April, a female hedgehog was admitted with lacerations and a broken leg. These were caused by a dog attack. The leg had to be amputated
Hedgehogs are starting to emerge in the Yorkshire area. Many are very poorly and need help immediately. Please ring 07711883072 if you spot a hedgehog looking weak and wobbly.
Have you lost this beautiful bunny?
Found on the main road at Eggborough and handed in to the police station. Please ring 07711883072 if this rabbit is yours.
Happy New Year everyone!
2017 looks like it's going to be a very busy year for the Wildlife Orphanage. Please ring us immediately you spot a wild animal or bird in distress. Time is always of the essence when dealing with wildlife.
WITH VERY BEST WISHES, AND HERE'S TO A GOOD ONE
The weather has finally turned with freezing temperatures and hard ground frosts. Yet the rescue is still admitting little hedgehogs and receiving calls about hedgehogs out in the day. With food sources gone, these hedgehogs will struggle to lay down the fat reserves needed to survive hibernation and need help immediately.
The Wildlife Orphanage has had an influx of small hedgehogs over the last few weeks. These are the Autumn Juveniles, born late in the year. They are often seen out in daytime and looking a bit wobbly. Please act quickly if you see one as they go downhill rapidly.
With winter just around the corner, these little hogs will be just too light for hibernation. They need to put on lots of weight to see them through the winter.
If you see a tiny hedgehog roaming about, often in daylight,
Please ring 0771 1883072 for advice.
