The IHA is a registered charitable
non-profit organization established with the purpose of educating the public in the care and betterment of hedgehogs and to facilitate the rescue, welfare, promotion and care of hedgehogs everywhere.
We have a membership representing 3 continents and encourage our members to be active participants in the IHA. Members can become actively involved with the IHA through committees. Contact us for information on how you can become involved.
We encourage and support rescue through our rescue licensing program, ensuring quality care and placement of rescues throughout North America and Europe. As well, IHA sponsored funding campaigns help to keep hedgehog rescues running.
The IHA's research activities have included studies on diet, nutrition and appropriate medication.
