Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are hedgehogs difficult to care for?
Hedgehogs make great pets if you are willing to care for them properly. The key to hedgehog care is to socialize them daily. Also, occasional baths and nail clippings are necessary. For more information, please see our Hedgehog Care page and Hedgehog Resources for additional resources.
Q: How do I get a hedgehog?
After reading Get a Hedgehog, fill out the short questionnaire to be added to the waiting list. We will notify you as soon as we have a hedgehog available. We do not accept deposits until we have a hedgehog available.
Q: When will the next litter be born?
For currently available litters, please see our Available Hoglets page. Please see our Breeding Schedule for other upcoming litters. If you are on the waiting list, we will start notifying you once the hoglets are around 4 weeks of age regarding your status.
Q: How long is the waiting list?
Due to the size of our herd and our desire to ensure quality pets, we do not breed for quantity. The average wait time for a hoglet after joining the waiting list is between 1-3 months, depending on the location.
Q: I do not live near North Carolina or Virginia, do you ship your hedgehogs?
We do not ship our hedgehogs. Pick-up is available where indicated on the Breeding Schedule. Possible locations are Charlottesville, VA with delivery to Durham, NC and our partner breeder in Asheville, NC.
