Rescuing Hedgehogs, Healing Hearts, and Helping Wildlife Thrive!
Welcome to The Hogsprickle, a dedicated hedgehog hospital and wildlife rescue nestled in the heart of Co. Clare, Ireland. Our mission is simple yet vital – To provide a lifeline for hedgehogs and other wildlife in distress. If you encounter a hedgehog in need, don't hesitate to reach out to us at 086 8624511 for immediate assistance and valuable information.
At The Hogsprickle, we recognize that wildlife lacks the luxury of owners to cater to their needs. There's no one to provide vet care, nourishing meals, or a secure environment. Therefore, it falls upon all of us to become stewards of our precious flora and fauna. Our sanctuary is a haven for hedgehogs, offering a safe space for rehabilitation and care. Beyond hedgehogs, we extend our helping hand to various wildlife in distress, such as badgers, bats and owls to name a few.
In a world where future generations may only dream of a vibrant, thriving ecosystem, The Hogsprickle stands as a beacon of hope. Join us in our journey to safeguard the beauty of nature, ensuring that life and colour endure for generations to come.
Our Hedgehog B&B
At The Hogsprickle, we believe in swift and compassionate action to give every sick or injured hedgehog, affectionately known as our "Spiky Butts," the best chance at recovery. Providing a warm and secure place for our wildlife guests can be financially challenging, especially during busy periods when "no room at this inn" is not an option. It's important to note that Spiky Butts and other wild species are protected in Ireland, requiring us to have a license from the National Parks and Wildlife Service. We diligently adhere to these regulations, and to the responsible and ethical care of our wildlife residents.
While our buildings are cosy, our work is far from over. Ongoing maintenance and continuous upgrades to accommodation are essential components of our mission. We are constantly building garden pens, applying wood preservatives, and renewing cages to provide species-specific care. This ongoing effort ensures that The Hogsprickle remains a haven where wildlife can receive the attention and support they need for a thriving future. Your support contributes directly to the well-being of these protected creatures and aids us in sustaining our vital work.
