We are in Southern New England, conveniently located 30 minutes from Hartford, CT, 1 hour from New Haven, CT, Springfield, MA and the New York State border, 2 hours from Boston, MA, Albany, NY, Providence, RI, Northern NJ and Southern VT


Our small size ensures that your hedgehog will get the individualized attention that your pet deserves. We breed primarily for health, longevity and temperament but also have hedgehogs in the major color groups and patterns. We are USDA licensed, which means we meet or exceed standards on facilities, operating conditions, animal health and husbandry and recordkeeping


We offer pre and post sales support to answer any questions you may have both before and after you bring your hedgehog home. There is also a lot of information in the articles and information section of our website.


We do have hedgehog babies available for sale throughout the year. Pictures are posted on our available hedgehog page, however babies often get put under deposit before we get a chance to take pictures so if you are interested in one of our hedgehogs, please fill out our questionnaire. The questionnaire helps us know what we need to tell you about hedgehog care before you bring a hedgehog home.


Even if you are not sure that you want a hedgehog as a pet, feel free to fill out our questionnaire and contact us to schedule an appointment. You can come and see the hedgehogs and decide if it is the right pet for you. We do not charge a fee for this service but it is subject to our time availability. Since owning a pet is a big commitment, we do not require that you put down a deposit until you are comfortable doing so. We do need a completed questionnaire on file before we will schedule an appointment.
