Already the GSPCA has rescued, rehabilitated and cared for over 100 hedgehogs this year.

Last night Charlie a very poorly hedgehog arrived covered in mange and extremely thin.

We often see mange in hedgehogs in Guernsey but if rescued and brought into the Shelter can easily be treated.  Thankfully Charlie is one of the lucky ones and he is now in the Intensive Care Unit of the Hedgehog Block at the GSPCA where he will undergo a series of treatments to free him from this mite.
