We need your help
1. To let us know if: there are potential hog hazards in your area.
2. Do you know of sites with a noticeable hog community so we could arrange health Checks for them.
3. Do you know of sites that may be lost through development, we could arrange to rescue these hogs before the site is destroyed.
4. Each Basic Hog Health Check which includes, worming removing tics (top right picture)and fleas, Mange check (Harry before treatment middle left picture after treatment lower left picture) tagging (lower Right picture) and colour coding with a specially made non toxic coloured paint, which we hope will help motorists see and avoid running these hogs over. Costs approximately £3.00.
Veterinary visits & Xrays cost between £55.00 & £65.00. Some sick hogs found on community checks benefit from 'puppy milk' (top left picture also shows coloured paint) when they at first struggle to eat tinned or dried food this cost for a small tin of dried product £48.00. We rely on donations, all is appreciated large or small. We are fortunate to be given shredded paper for bedding and there is always a ready supply of newspapers, but when the new waste charges are implemented this will be a significant financial burden on the charity.
