Please note, as I am from Quebec, English is not my first language. Hedgehog's Island Breeder of African Pygmy Hedgehog
31st of May 2018 Our breeding program is now discontinued. Thank you for your kind interest.
If you are looking to adopt a hedgehog, please be careful in your search and find a good and ethical breeder who loves and respects her/his animals. Avoid pet store where they are not proprely handled and where you can't be sure of the lineages.
We have a good working relationship with our friend in British Columbia SV Hedgehogs where most of our breeders went, as well as Hedgehog's Island's mentor Élevage Hérissopy established in Quebec. Both of those reputable breeders can ship by airplane hedgehogs during the opening season (from May to September/October) and we recommend you to contact them if you are looking to add a member to your family.
Please note: If you live on Prince Edward Island or New Foundland and Labrador, you need an exotic pet permit. It is mandatory that you contact your Wildlife Department to get yours prior to adopt your hedgehog. It's an easy procedure to do.
I may be done breeding but I am not done sharing the passion :) Thanks for your trust and your support! -Annie
24th of January 2018 It is with a heart filled with love and achievement that I write this;
These past years, I have developed this breeding program with the hope to bring to you those fantastic creatures that are hedgehogs, and each one of those little hedgies which I have shared with you all have been greatly cared for and loved. I am really proud of myself and the babies I have delivered to each one of you, and I hope you have enjoyed watching them grow with me. However, it has been an increasingly difficult task to raise and tend to all of these little friends, and I am afraid that it has grown to be a task which is beyond the scope of one person. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that for my own benefit, as well as that of the hedgehogs, I will be ending the breeding program at Hedgehog’s Island. Once all of those on the reservation list have received their new baby, the program will be discontinued.
I am really sorry for any inconvenience, and I thank you for all of the love and support you have shown me over the past few years. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you so much for your trust and your support! Annie
