Currently we are located in Virginia. We will be offering shipping within the continental United States in 2013 to those not within driving distance! [The exact shipping date will depend on the weather.] If you would like to be placed on our shipping waiting list, please contact us! We only suggest shipping for those who are not within driving distance.
For those we are shipping to, our hedgies will have a shipping fee to be determined by shipping costs at the time. [Please expect between $200-300.] Shipping IS expensive, unfortunately. The safe and legal way to ship is via air cargo through an approved airline or an approved pet transport company. [Shipping cost includes the flight, transport, the health certificate/vet visit, and the kennel cab. We provide food, a snuggle sack, and a birth certificate pedigree.]
To those close enough to us not to warrant shipping, we will travel within reason. We can either meet you somewhere in between or come directly to your location. Our travel fee is $0.25 per mile, round trip.
The shipping fee includes: air fair, an IATA approved kennel, travel supplies [food, bedding, etc], any required papers [health guarantee, health certificate, care sheet, etc], and transport of your hedgehog to the shipping facility. Prior to shipping your hedgehog must be paid IN FULL [and have cleared] via paypal, money order, or personal check.
For each additional same-sex hedgehog that is being shipped [up to three] the rate will be discounted.
Payments, Deposits, & Pricing:
Hedgehogs will be ‘pending adoption’ until a deposit has been placed. We ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold an animal for up to two weeks after their listed “adoption date” [unless we arrange an alternative pick-up date in special circumstances].
We accept money orders, cash, and paypal [an additional 2.7% will be added for all paypal transaction to cover the fee.]. Any questions about pricing or payment plans, please contact us.
Adolescent hedgehogs will typically be $200 (occasionally we’ll have standard greys for $180). All hoglets come with a sample of food, one generation pedigree/birth certificate, IHA/IHR number, and a complimentary snuggle sack.
[We sometimes have older hedgies up for adoption. Adult hedgehogs will typically be $150 or lower.] Pricing depends on numerous factors including age, pedigree, color, etc. Prices are subject to change at our discretion.
Animals sold as PET ONLY are NOT TO BE BRED!
STANDARD HEALTH GUARANTEE
Our health guarantee is one year for anything congenital. We guarantee that our animals are in good health at the time of purchase. Our goal is to produce healthy animals, but occasionally an undetected birth defect may become life threatening.
Should a pet hedgehog die from a congenital defect prior to the one-year purchase date we will replace the hedgehog at zero cost to the original buyer.
A veterinary statement confirming congenital defects is required. All veterinary expenses are the responsibility of the hedgehog owner. Irregardless, if something happens to your hedgie, for any reason, please contact us!
INTERESTED IN ADOPTION?
Please fill out the appropriate adoption form below. Once you submit an adoption form, we will put you down on our waiting list for the next available hedgehog with your preferences (unless you specified an available hedgehog). We do first come, first serve, and we go in order down our waiting list with each new litter born. Once we receive your adoption form, you will be sent an email confirming that we have received it. :)
ATTENTION: Please always ask for our ID to ensure that we are who we say we are! Whether you plan to adopt from us or not, please feel free to ask us any questions. We would be glad to share any knowledge from our personal experience so that you can make an informed decision about whether an exotic pet is right for you.
