Reservation I cannot guarantee color of any hedgehog neither a hedgehog from a specific litter. There is a non-refundable deposit of $50 required to be put in our waiting list. Deposits may be made via Paypal, email money transfer or cash. The deposit goes towards the overall cost of the hedgehog. We will email you when it is time to choose your new baby. We will give you 24hrs to choose your new baby.
Sale Policies We do not sell to pet stores or wholesalers.
We will not sell opposite sex pairs to the same person, or to people within the same household, or to anyone that we believe might allow such a pair to interact (accidentally or otherwise). We recommend two females as the best choice in these cases, because they are more likely to get along and females from the same litter can be housed together.
We will only sell hedgehogs for breeding to established breeders that we have working relationships with.
Health* To the best of our knowledge, we guarantee your hedgehog to be healthy and exempt of any hereditary diseases. All buyers are expected to have their new hedgehog (regardless of age) examined by a licensed veterinarian who is experienced with hedgehogs, within 5 calendar days of the date of purchase. Failing to do so could nullify our guarantee.
If your hedgehog dies in the three (3) months following the adoption day, we will gladly give you a new baby, after reception of the analysis of a veterinarian pathologist. The analysis should prove the cause of death for the baby hedgehog was predisposed when the baby was under our care (disorder inherited disease, illness, birth malformation, etc.). We do not include accident, carelessness, malnutrition, any manageable or transmissible disease, etc.
Mites* We attest you that your hedgehog is exempt from mites. If he get a diagnosis of mites within the twenty-one (21) days following the adoption date (duration of the entire reproduction cycle of this parasite), we will offer you the prescribed treatment payment, given that you provide a written proof from a licensed veterinarian indicating that your hedgehog has mites.
In the event that your hedgehog has gotten mites, do NOT let the vet use IVERMECTIN. Tell them you want to use Revolution for Puppies instead. If Ivermectin has been used, the health guarantee will be void.
Wobbly (WHS)* The breeder gives a lifetime warranty against Wobbly syndrome, a progressive degeneration of the neurotic central system that appears between eighteen and twenty-four months old. If your hedgehog is diagnosed with this disease, we will give you a new baby at no charge (except shipping/delivery cost). We will need the necropsy report of a veterinary pathologist proving that your hedgehog was suffering from WHS. If no babies are available at this time, you will be place on the reservation list for the adoption of a new hedgehog.
Return of a hedgehog We will willingly reaccept any hedgehog from an adoptee, without fees, given the adoptee no longer feels capable of caring for the hedgehog.
The adoptee must tell the breeder if they intend to resell the hedgehog, before resale, even if they have already found a new family. Hedgehog’s Island can help you to find a new family for the hedgehog, or, at the very least, take it back. The welfare of the animal is our utmost priority and we care to know where the critter is going to.
*Those guarantees are valid only to the initial adoptee. They are not transferable to a new adoptee if you decide to sell the hedgehog before the end of those guarantees.
