Q: Are hedgehogs difficult to care for?

Q: How do I get a hedgehog?
After you've researched hedgehogs and have determined they're a good fit for you, fill out the short adoption application 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. For more information on the waiting list process, visit here.

Q: I do not live near North Carolina, do you ship your hedgehogs?
Pick-up is available where indicated on the Breeding Schedule. Additionally, we have partnered with a reputable USDA transport company to allow for safe, nationwide shipping of our hedgehogs for an additional fee.
