Milwaukee Hedgehog Rendezvous 2008 Fundraising Opportunities


An auction to raise funds for Hedgehog charities is a tradition at Hedgehog Shows.  The 2006 Milwaukee Hedgehog Rendezvous raised over $800.00 for Hedgehog Rescue. The beneficiaries of our 2006 auction were:


This year’s auction contains plenty of nifty merchandise, so bid high as all of the money raised will benefit Hedgehog Rescue and Hedgehog Health Research. 


Fifty percent of the money raised will be used to fund Uterine Cancer Research.  The other fifty percent will go to the Flash and Thelma Memorial Hedgehog Rescue.


A North American Nonprofit Charitable Corporation helping hedgehogs in need

The Flash and Thelma Memorial Hedgehog Rescue, Inc., provides rescue services for abused, neglected, abandoned, and no longer wanted hedgehogs throughout North America.  The Rescue also has agreements with animal control agencies in states where hedgehogs are illegal to possess (primarily California) to fly the hedgehogs out of the illegal state to our Rescue.  A Colorado nonprofit corporation, Flash and Thelma is federally licensed by the USDA (Class C - 84-C-0075) and by the State of Colorado as an animal shelter and rescue (#3190).  We have an active foster care program but do not adopt out or sell hedgehogs.  We are a "no kill" shelter and provide whatever it takes in veterinary care to restore our rescue hedgehogs to health, and to maintain health care.  For more information contact
