Spikes Hedgehog Sanctuary has been rescuing and rehabilitating hedgehogs in need for over 17 years.

Originally founded in London, Spikes then moved to Wales where the hedgehogs were housed in a converted garage. But in 2012 we moved to our current location in Yorkletts, near Whitstable in Kent. In 2013 we were generously awarded a grant from LUSH (Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Charity Pot) that enabled us to create purpose-built accommodation for our hedgehogs that has electricity and can house around 20 animals at a time.

We take in hedgehogs of all shapes and sizes, from tiny orphaned babies right, up to fully grown adults. You can read more about some of the hedgehogs we have rescued here.
