One of our young cubs enjoying the sunshine.

This year we have cared for over 25 fox cubs who were orphaned, abandoned or whose home was destroyed. They require specialist care and stay with us until they are fully grown and ready to be released.

''Hello, where is my dinner?!''

We often have sick, injured or underweight hedgehogs in our care, especially over the winter when they should be hibernating.

The best food to leave out for hedgehogs in your garden is cat or dog food, meal worms or specially formulated hedgehog food. Remember do not feed them bread, milk or fishy food as this will upset their stomachs.

Many of our littlest babies need a very gentle, patient hand to take over from mum.

Feeding, cleaning and keeping them warm is not as easy as it looks but always worth the effort.

''Whoooo's that coming in my cage?''

Owls and birds of prey do not welcome close contact so we always try to be as hands off as possible whilst giving them a safe environment to recover in.
