Pedigrees are not provided for pets, and all information collected is solely for record-keeping to ensure responsible placement.

Privacy Assurance:

This application is for internal record-keeping purposes only, and none of your information will be shared with any external parties.

Health and Welfare Commitments:

  • All babies are pedigreed and, to the best of our knowledge, free from Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS) lineage.

  • In the unfortunate event of your hedgehog being diagnosed with WHS, we commit to replacing your baby with veterinary proof.

  • If circumstances arise where you are no longer able to care for your hedgehog, we will take them back at no cost.

  • If you decide to rehome, please inform us, as we want to stay in contact with the new owners.

Adoption Policies:

  • We no longer hold babies for more than 3 days past their weaning date.

  • A holding fee applies for anything past 4 days, with exceptions.

  • Out-of-state adoptions require full payment before pick-up, and transportation costs are covered by the adopter.

  • Socializing videos will be provided once the majority of babies have reserved homes.

  • Please request videos and appointments to be actively involved in the experience.

Application Guidelines:

  • Please provide detailed information in the application.

  • All deposits are non-refundable.

  • Submitting the application does not guarantee a baby.

  • Upon application approval, a deposit is required to hold your baby until pick-up day.

Zoom Call and Support:

  • After placing your deposit, schedule an optional 15-30 minute Zoom call for a Q&A about the care of your future hedgehog.

  • During this call, you can showcase your setup and discuss any questions or concerns.

  • You will also have the opportunity to see your hedgehog during this call.

Rescue Policies:

  • We do not offer replacements for rescues if WHS occurs.

  • Rescues must be paid in full before pick-up.

  • Lifetime support is provided; reach out with any questions or concerns about your hedgehog.
