I have opened the Sanctuary again and have been taking in hedgehogs, but due to the Covid restrictions I cannot have volunteers enter my house, so have had to reduce capacity to a size I can manage alone. 

This means the Sanctuary is full (mostly with underweight juveniles). 

I am available on my Facebook page to give advice, but if you find a hedgehog in need of help please contact a rescue in your area or take it to Wildlife Aid Hospital, Randalls Farm Road, nr Leatherhead KT22 0AL

Shepperton Hedgehog Sanctuary is a small self-funded hedgehog rescue on the Surrey/Middlesex borders.


With your support we hope to care for and rehabilitate hedgehogs and educate people on their importance.


As we are self-funded we rely on donations from the public and sponsors so we can provide the food and medicines needed to care for our hedgehogs.


If you are able to make a donation of any size to help support us please click on the Donate button.


Thank you.


We have set up an Amazon wish list to allow our supporters to help us acquire the supplies, including medical equipment and blankets, that we need to ensure the hedgehogs that visit us receive the best possible treatment and care.

If you would like to help us by purchasing something from our wish list, please click the link below. Thank you for your generosity.



With help from the Charities Aid Foundation, Shepperton Hedgehog Sanctuary was included in the 2019 Co-op Local Community Fund. The money raised by customers in the Shepperton Co-op will go a long way to helping us get through next year. Thank you CAF and Co-op
