Warwickshire Hedgehog Rescue

Helping injured, abandoned and orphaned hedgehogs.

Feeding Station



A) Paving slab on bricks (Pic.1)

Leave a ½ brick gap to give access. Place the food & water bowls around the corner.


B) Plastic Boxes (Pic.2)


  1. Get a plastic box, about 12” wide, 18” long and 6” deep.

  2. Cut a hole 4” x 5” in one of the short ends. Use with a lid or turn upside down.

  3. Put the food at the opposite end so that a fox or cat cannot put their long arms in and pull out the food. Place a saucer on top as extra precaution, the Hedgehog will knock it off to get at the food.

  4. Put a brick or heavy weight on top of the box, to stop it being knocked over.

  5. Place the box with the entrance facing a wall, fence or place a brick 4” to 5” in front of the entrance to stop cats etc. from getting at the food.

  6. Hedgehogs love to go down alleyways so will get into the feeding station without any problems.
