An unusual visitor – a Kingsnake

Kingsnake for websiteNot one of our usual visitors … this Kingsnake was a rescue from a vets after it had been found in Wigston and captured by the Police. It had no injuries and once put in a vivarium with the required conditions, it warmed up and fed without hesitation. These snakes are native to North America and are regularly domesticated in ranches as they feed on pests like rodents and species that may pose a threat, such as rattlesnakes.

Hedgehogs going hungry

It’s an incredibly busy time for us at the hospital.  This long, hot, dry summer has resulted in us becoming inundated with starving hedgehogs and young birds who have struggled to find food – such as earthworms, beetles, slugs and snails - due to the lack of rain.

Donate a can of dog food and help feed our hungry hedgehogs…
Our hedgehogs get through an enormous amount of dog food every week.  If you would like to help us with a donation of dog food, we’d greatly appreciate it.  Visit our ‘Items needed’ page to see how you can help.
