Veolia supports the Hogsprickle Wildlife Rescue

Funded by the Veolia Connect community programme

The Hogsprickle Wildlife Rescue, based in Ennis, Co. Clare, rehabilitates orphaned and injured hedgehogs and other wildlife with the aim of successfully releasing them back to the wild.

Helping hedgehogs and other wildlife in distress in Ireland can be very time consuming and potentially expensive. The Hogsprickle (hospital for hedgehogs - Hogsprickle, get it?) is a small, self-funded hedgehog and wildlife rescue where volunteers give their time and transport with a willing, loving heart.

Led by Bev Truss, a Registered Vet Nurse, the Hogsprickle provides veterinary treatment and care to injured animals and helps to educate and advise the public on how to rescue and support wildlife in the environment.

Leo Beretta, who works in our Hazardous Waste Facility in Fermoy, Co. Cork, successfully applied to Veolia Connect for funding to upgrade and repair existing equipment and buildings such as the Critical Care Unit and the Recovery Unit.
