There are no wild hedgehogs in Texas, but little Ajax was found roaming wild and free…that is, until a dog found him and thought him to be an interesting-but-prickly ball. Luckily, the dog’s owner intervened and, after rescuing poor Ajax, called us for help. FireQuills to the rescue!
So far, poor Ajax was VERY dirty, has a sizable mite infestation, and a CAT’S CLAW buried in his side. He’s on his way to recovery and (hopefully) to a ‘forever home’ safe from dogs and cats.
We believe he either escaped from a poorly constructed cage, or an irresponsible (the nicest word I can think of right now) owner let him go ‘free’ outside. The twat. You can help Ajax by donating to his vet bills and care here!
