A Little About Us
Over the last 20+ years, we have lived with many species of birds, reptiles and small mammals. In late 2005, our experience with African hedgehogs began, and in 2006 our first litter of hedgehog babies was born. It was love at first sight and we have been producing healthy, gorgeous baby hedgehogs ever since. We offer a health guarantee on every baby that leaves us.
Our GoalWe strive to produce healthy, friendly, and beautiful baby hedgehogs and miniature goat kids. We have selected breeding animals that, in our opinion, are of the best quality of health and have wonderful temperaments. We try to ensure that every animal that leaves us is matched with a suitable, knowledgeable owner.
What Our Animals Mean To UsOur animals are living, breathing, flesh and blood creatures, not products or items. We invest a lot of our hearts and our time into our animals, and their well-being and safety is priority. We make every effort to ask questions, answer questions, and assist potential buyers before selling our animals. It is of the utmost importance to us that they find loving homes with new owners that are educated and prepared to take on the responsibility of having a pet as a new member of the family.
Our MissionWe take every opportunity to educate ourselves and share our knowledge with others. Education about the species should be top priority among all breeders. If a breeder is not knowledgeable about the animals that they are offering, they cannot assist you with any issues that may arise and you aren't likely get a healthy, top-quality animal.
NOTE:It has been brought to our attention, by many unfortunate buyers, that pet shops will not offer or honor any kind of guarantee on the hedgehogs that they sell. They often do not have detailed information on the hedgehogs; such as DOB, gender, health issues in the lineage, etc. Some shops do not know how to properly care for the hedgehogs. Proper temperatures and diet are essential to the health of hedgehogs. Pet shops often do not separate hedgehogs which leads to hedgehogs that are bred at a very young age (which can lead to the death of the female and the litter), inbred litters, and injuries from fighting with one another. The hedgehogs are also exposed to all other animals in the store as well as ever customer that walks by, which can cause health problems and significant behavioral/temperament issues.
It is an important part of our mission to encourage everyone to consider the above issues before buying ANY animal.
