Hey! What's involved?

Hedgehog Adoption

Baby hedgehogs are available for adoption, as soon as they are 7 weeks old, but in some cases we may wait until they are older for any number of reasons. Baby hedgehogs will NOT be shipped untill they are at least 8 weeks old, and weigh 160 grams or more. We require an application to be submitted and approved BEFORE you are able to choose from the list of available hedgehogs. There is a $5.00 "fee" to submit the application, this helps us to maintain our website. The $5.00 is non-refundable, but is applied to the adoption cost. You will receive an active application number via email.

As the litters are made available for deposits. This usually happens some time around the seventh week. Anyone with an active application on file, may select from any of the available hedgehogs listed. A non-refundable $50.00 deposit is required to "hold" the hedgehog selected. If you DO NOT have an application on file, you will not be able to place a deposit on any of the available hedgehogs.

The breeding schedule is listed on the available hedgehogs page.

All Hedgehog adoptions range in price from $200.00 - $275.00 (unless otherwise noted). Adoption includes one pound of food. Please note: Be prepared to show that you have a complete habitat ready for your hedgie, or plan on getting one from us, if available. Your non-refundable deposit IS applied to the cost of the adoption.

We have basic habitat "set-ups" for sale starting at $125.00, and meets all of the minimum standards listed below. If you are planning to get your habitat from us, please ask about availability. Most of the habitats we offer are complete, but must be purchased, and placed on order at least 1 week prior to your hedgehog pick up date.   If you do have your own habitat, it must meet minimum standards; Have at least 3-1/2 sq.ft. of "floor" space ( a solid floor is a must), and be well ventilated (Aquariums are NOT recommened). It must have a hedgehog safe exercise wheel, a "hiding" place, like an igloo, or some other type of safe "hide", and a safe food and water dish (we prefer a water dish or bowl over a water bottle for added safety, as some water bottles have been known to cause injury to hedgehogs).

Having the right habitat is essential for a hedgehog to leave our care. In the winter months, you will be required to show that you have a heating system, or you may purchase one from us, also in advance of the pick up date. Knowing that your hedgie will be equipped with a more than adequate, safe, healthy environment in which to live is very important to us.
