With hundreds of hedgehogs rescued every year it is always lovely to wave them off when they are fully recovered back to the wild.

On the 23rd July a very little hedgehog was found in St Martins thin and a number of health concerns.

After 6 weeks of care and TLC GSPCA Shelter staff contacted the finders who helped rescue and name 'Percy Pricklesworth' to collect him and return him to the wild.

Before he was collected he has been microchipped and a small dash of purple paint placed on his spines.  This is done so that he can be recognised and identified with the paint for the next few weeks and with the microchip so if ever he returns to the GSPCA we will know who he is.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We see around 300 to 400 hedgehogs a year come through our Hedgehog Department at the GSPCA."

"Percy Pricklesworth was very lucky to be rescued and it is always great to get them back to the wild."

"It was lovely to meet the couple who collected him this evening who I gave a little advice before waving them all off."

"We have a page full of advice on our website if you find a sick or ill hedgehog or you can always call us on 257261."

"We are always looking for Angel Pen Pal sponsors to help support our work and also food and honey for the hedgehogs."
