Hello, I was hurt in the middle of a field, with a big gash in my back. I was very lucky, Hoggies Respite found me. They took me in and helped me, my wound started to heal. I was very worried I knew I was about to have babies and I did not know what would happen now.
Hoggies Respite recognised that I was pregnant, they gave me a nice hutch with lots of hay and an area where I could exercise or hide in the back if I wanted to.
They left me quietly and I had three babies. They left me to care for them, they made sure there was water and food all the time. I looked after my babies and now they are grown.
Its too cold for us to go back home at the moment, my babies and I are loose in a big garden, till the spring. We have lots of nest boxes to choose from, and they all contain hay. There is food and water out every day for us. We are very happy and looking forward to going back home in the Spring.
This is what Hoggies Respite is all about. Rescue, rehabilitate and release. It takes a lot of money to provide food, medication and care for these creatures. Please help us by donating via our link on the ‘About’ page of this web site.
