APH UK Rescue was founded with two goals in mind, educating existing owners and potential owners of an African Pygmy Hedgehog’s needs and requirements and re-homing.  As with lots of things life happens, which sometimes interferers with the extra time these beautiful exotic mammals need, this is where re-homing is required.  We are here to help making sure that these precious creatures are placed in an educated forever home so they can live out their life with proper care and attention. We are people too and we understand that this can be a delicate process.

Please contact us if you have a hedgehog to rehome or room in your life to welcome a new addition to your family, or if you would just like to foster. We help humans to help hedgehogs.

Our Aim

Unlike most hedgehog rescues, our aim is not to purchase any and all hedgehogs that possibly come into the realms of being a rescue, instead we intend to tackle the true root cause of the problem, in a lot of the cases this root cause is "Money" when a rescue purchase a hedgehog from a pet shop or from Pets4Homes, Gumtree, preloved, we are uncountably funding the recurring supply and demand of of such shops and more importantly unscrupulous breeders.
