PLEASE READ IF INTERESTED IN PURCHASING A HEDGEHOG!
*The waitlist will have priority to choose babies first. The waitlist is free to join. When babies are old enough, I will send pics to the waitlist, and whoever places their deposit on the baby of their choice first is who will get that baby. Any remaining available babies will be posted on this website and our facebook page.
If you would like to be on our waiting list, please send a text or email--
With your name, age, and the email address and/or phone number you would like to be contacted at. Please make sure this is an email address you check frequently and/or check your spam mail periodically.
*Once your baby is chosen, a $50 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is required to hold that baby. The remaining balance of the baby's price will be due either at pickup or before transport is arranged. Transport will not be arranged without payment. Payment methods currently accepted are cash, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo, and CashApp.
*Pricing on babies will be determined primarily by color/markings. Prices vary so please contact me for details. Typical hedgehog pricing ranges from $200 and up. Rare colors/patterns/markings will be higher. Prices will be determined around 3-4 weeks of age. I cannot guarantee colors. I can guess, but cannot guarantee, because once a hedgie starts quilling, it can change.
*Along with your hoglet, I will send home a snuggle sack and a week's worth of food. In the future, if there is enough interest, I would like to offer full set ups for sale as well.
*I will not sell opposite sex pairs. Hedgehogs are generally solitary creatures and are perfectly fine living alone. Males will fight, even brothers, so they should not be housed together if you do choose to get 2 boys. If you would like a pair, 2 females from the same litter is optimal for harmonious living. Females can live peacefully together, but any animals can fight or not get along, so regardless, they always need to be carefully observed to make sure all is well. There is no personality difference between males and females, they are both wonderful.
*Until further notice, all of the babies sold by the Hedgehaus are sold as *PETS ONLY*. All babies ARE pedigreed. I will be registering the litters as whether I sell them as pets or breeders with The Hedgie List registry.
*I offer a lifetime warranty against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS), and also a 6-month warranty against congenital problems. Any health problems you find will have to be confirmed by a veterinarian, who will then send the test results directly to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember that at this time WHS can only be confirmed by a necropsy, including sectioning of the brain, which is performed after death.
**If you do not notify me of any health issues with your hedgehog, it does not leave me the opportunity to make it right by offering you a replacement hedgehog, nor will I know if that issue could be a problem with other related hedgies. Communication with your breeder, especially with health issues, is extremely important for both parties.**
A warranty against WHS does not guarantee your hedgehog will not get WHS, although it is extremely unlikely that it will. There is no actual scientific evidence that it is genetic. Although many people believe that is the case, others are inclined to believe other diseases or environmental factors or diet may also play a role. The issue is, we do not definitively KNOW. Many other issues can also cause wobbliness in a hedgehog, such as hibernation attempt, stroke, ear infection, etc. This is why if the animal passes, a necropsy MUST be done for the WHS guarantee to be honored.
(for more WHS info, see:
I do guarantee that if your hedgehog has WHS in its lifetime (or any congenital issue before 6 months) and passes from it, I will replace your hedgehog with another as soon as one is available. Unfortunately I do not offer refunds as *all sales are final*.
**Replacements are ONLY for the above circumstances. Treatable issues such as mites, accidental death, or improper care by you are not included.
*I will provide after sale support 100% for the lifetime of your hedgehog. If you need my assistance, send me a message any time and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
*You are more than welcome to pick up your hedgehog locally. Due to COVID-19, all meetups must be curbside and masks are mandatory. I work with the public, and this is for both of our safety. I will be happy to explain everything and answer any questions when you pick up your baby.
*We generally do not ship via air. (If you are willing to pay for it, we can discuss it.) We will offer ground transport, via myself (Tiggywinkle Transport) or other transporters.
Tiggywinkle Transport is based in Dallas, TX and we only cover an approximate 300 mile radius for the time being. Prices for transport begin at $200 per hedgehog, which includes the travel cage. You can visit our Facebook page here:
If you are out of our 300 mile range, please let us know and we can either find a work around, or find transport for your hedgehog from another transporter. There may be a wait while an available route develops. Other transporters charge in the same range as us, maybe a little more/less, depending.
*I will not sell to states where hedgehogs are illegal to have as pets. Those states/areas are: California, Georgia, Hawaii, all 5 boroughs of New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.
*You must be 18 years of age to purchase a hedgehog. If you are under the age of 18, please have your parent contact me to verify that they agree to be ultimately responsible for the care of the animal.
*If you can no longer take care of your hedgehog, please contact me first before rehoming it. I will happily take any babies back if you can no longer care for them, but no compensation will be provided for this service.
