We are currently on hiatus until late July while we focus on preparing for our wedding! Emails and reservation forms will be responded to as soon as possible, but it may be several weeks.
We will have several rehomes and retirees available at the end of July, and our next babies will be ready in August.
Our top priority is breeding for health, temperament, and conformation, and our breeding animals are chosen from among the best lines from breeders in the US and Canada. All babies are handled 2-3 times daily, starting from as early as the mother will allow (usually around 7 days old). They are well socialized and given individual attention to prepare them for their new homes.
Babies come with a health guarantee, lifetime warranty against WHS, starter bag of food, birth certificate, weight chart, care booklet, and post-sale support for the entirety of the hedgehog's life.
We are actively involved in online hedgehog communities and are a member of the Hedgehog Welfare Society (HWS). We are also involved in local rehome and rescue efforts - we will take in any hedgehog in need of a home.
We are proud to have the most genetically and colorfully diverse hedgehog herd in the northwest! It comprises a multitude of carefully chosen bloodlines from many different breeders. We currently work closely with Storybook Hedgehogs, an excellent breeder in Utah, and Bloomin Hedgehogs, a recently retired breeder with over 10 years experience. We feel that collaboration and ongoing discussion with breeders that share our ethics and goals helps us to continuously improve our methods and the hedgehogs that we produce.
We also have a large variety of colors and patterns in our herd, including a handful of new and unusual colors not yet officially recognized. The majority of the babies that we have available are dark range pintos, snowflakes, or solids. We also regularly produce browns, cinnicots, and apricots, as well as occasional albinos and some new colors .
We're happy to point new owners toward the best resources for research, as well as answer any questions you may have as you prepare for your new hedgehog. For anyone interested, we also allow visits (by appointment only, with a reservation form on file) so you can see our hedgehog room, meet and handle some of our hedgehogs, and have your questions answered.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, or to schedule a visit! We look forward to hearing from you.
We now have tenrecs!
One of our tenrec mothers, Mia, gave birth to four babies on May 16th!
Tenrecs superficially resemble hedgehogs but are unrelated. They are very tame, less defensive than hedgehogs, and live much longer. Tenrecs are very uncommon in the US, and we are currently the only breeder on the west coast.
Tenrecs are seasonal breeders, so once these babies are spoken for, we will not have any more available until next year! Please contact us if you're interested in bringing home one of these unique, amazing little pets!
