About Hedgehog Welfare Society


The Hedgehog Welfare Society (HWS) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charity dedicated to the health and well-being of hedgehogs through rescue, education and research.  Through our group's approved rescue stations, we take in hedgehogs in need, nurse them back to good health if necessary, and place them in approved homes. 

Through our educational programs, we help guardians provide a happy, safe environment for their hedgehogs.

We also help fund several research projects dedicated to the health issues affecting pet hedgehogs.
