Horis and Harold's Hedgehog diary

Goodbye Horis and Harold!

After a long winter being cared for by the children and Mrs. Ballard, the time has come to say goodbye to Horis and Harold. Since coming to stay with us both hedgehogs have doubled their start weight and are more than ready to be released back into the wild.  We had hoped that one of our fur-babies could be released locally, but unfortunately, both have to be returned together. Taking care of our little friends has been a pleasure and we are excited for Horis and Harold to find their friends!
