Prickles and Paws Hedgehog Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of native British hedgehogs. We admit hedgehogs from all over Cornwall and into Devon, working closely with vets and the RSPCA. A helpline is provided for both the public and vets. We attend events and offer educational talks, workshops and run a research program to improve hedgehog care and conservation.

Prickles and Paws is a small but rapidly growing registered charity which last year admitted over 1,300 hedgehogs, rehabilitating them through to release into wild. 

Hedgehogs are declining rapidly across the UK and have recently been classified as ‘Vulnerable to Extinction’ by the IUCN Red List, so every life saved is of the utmost importance. We are the main hedgehog rescue centre for Cornwall accepting hedgehogs from the RSPCA, vets and members of the public from as far as Plymouth and Lands End. Our charity is very much at the heart of the local community with nearly 200 volunteers supporting our work through volunteer driving, helping care for hedgehogs at the rescue to fundraising and education.  

Our little charity run from a family home is rapidly growing and is expanding to a new site in 2022 to ensure we can continue to provide care for the ever growing number of hedgehogs in need of help. Our new purpose built premises will increase our capacity, expand our education offer and volunteering opportunities as well as allow the continuation of research with the aim of improving welfare, husbandry practices, survival and contribution of rescues to species conservation.

Good luck with the fund raising. Shame the council couldn’t support a homegrown wildlife initiative in Cornwall.

Thanks for all you do to help our prickly friends. I hope you find suitable land soon. If you had wanted to build 100s of houses planning would've been granted I'm sure. Good luck
