Sleeping After Sunshine
— diane (@baggott19) 9 March 2017
There’s always one who gets a little bit too excited at the first sign of sunshine. Looks like this little doggo is one of them…
The Wild Hog
The Wildlife Unit are busy caring for a large number of hedgehogs, including many juvenile hogs. One little guy is only 64g, so has a lot of growing to do to survive the winter. Our hogs are munching us out of house and home at the moment, and we are in desperate need of bags of dried mealworm. If anyone would like to help our new additons, we would be very grateful. The easiest way is to order from our Amazon Wish List at the link below. Thank You! https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/1WHLGU9AYXKM7/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_v #hedgehog #hedgehogsofinstagram #babyhog #hedgehogrescue #wildliferehab #wildliferescue #nonprofit #animalcharity #support #goodcause #freshfields #animalrescue #liverpool #wales
All together now, aaaaaawh.
Who doesn’t love a snuggly little hedgehog all wrapped up and ready for World Sleep Day?
Take a look at Freshfields Animal Rescue for more cuddly cuties that you can help!
The Cuddliest Kitten
Taking a little time for some slumbersome snacks, this little rescue kitten is all wrapped and ready.
Warm milk has always been the best catnap companion, even if you need a little helping hand!
Meet Mellow Muffin
If you read our snazzy infographic, you’ll know that horses don’t sleep very much at all! On World Sleep Day however, it would be rude not to have a little lie down now wouldn’t it?
Muffin’s got the right idea, she’s found her spot on the field and is all curled up and ready for an afternoon slumber!
The Spread Out Sleeper

And why shouldn’t you enjoy World Sleep Day to the fullest? Follow Big Jamie’s lead and spread out those limbs like there’s nobody else who needs the bed.
The Lethargic Labrador
A lethargic little Labrador is exactly what we need on World Sleep Day! That look in his eyes tells me its time for lullabies...
The Huggable Husky
Not so little Maya may be a hike ready husky but she loves nothing more than a sleepy snuggle on World Sleep Day! You can practically hear the zzzzz’s from here!
The Comfortable Koala

Who’d have thought that sleeping on a branch could look so darn comfortable?
Laid Back Lilly
Derek may not be curled up in bed just yet, but his snazzy pyjamas tell me he’s well on his way! It’s not World Sleep Day if you don’t have the pj’s to prove it.
The Happy Hamster

They may do nothing but at least this little guy knows how to celebrate World Sleep Day in style.
Violet, Figgy, Gimble and Dolly
Meet Violet the Westie, Figgy the Lhasa, Gimble the Yorkie and Dolly the Westie! All waiting for their forever homes in a kennel at the rescue centre. Could you give any of them a forever home full of love? #adoptdontshop #adoptadog #rescuedogs #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedogsrock #manytearsrescue #manytearsanimalrescue #fosterdogs #dogsofinstagram #dogsforlife #dogs_of_instagram #dogstagram #dogslife
These little cuties are all ready for their midday naptime!
I don’t know about you, but all those eyes sure look sleepy.
The Fatigued Ferret
This fluffy little ferret loves nothing more than a warm blanket wrapped around him for World Sleep Day!
