Were you interested in a baby I currently have available, or wanting to be placed on the waiting list for a future baby? Please specify.
Have you done any research before inquiring about a hedgehog? If yes, please explain specific info that you have learned while doing your research that is important to know for hedgehog ownership .
Why are you interested in owning a hedgehog?
Have you owned or handled a hedgehog before?
Do you currently own a hedgehog? (if yes please list age, gender and how many)
How did you hear about us (facebook, online, word of mouth)?
Do you have other pets? Please list all pets living in your home.
Please provide the name and contact information to the vet you intend to use for your hedgehog. Not all veterinarians will see hedgehogs, and most hedgehogs will need to be seen by an exotic veterinarian who has more knowledge about hedgehog care. If you do not have a vet in mind I am more than happy to recommend one for you. Your hedgehog should be taken in yearly for a wellness check.
Do you understand that breeding any hedgehogs acquired from Fairhaven Hedgehogs is a violation of my policy if you do not discuss it first with me and receive a pedigree? I will only support responsible, ethical breeding. I am open to discussing breeding rights with you if you are truly interested in breeding, just please be honest with me about your intentions. Please specify if your hedgehog will be a pet only.
Will you trim your hedgehogs nails as needed? (I am also available to trim nails by appointment for $10)
How do you intend to house your hedgehog? Full description of cage set up please! Please list ALL items that will go into the cage!
What heating system will you use to keep your hedgehog warm? Hedgehogs must be kept between 75-80 degrees at all times! Hibernation attempts can KILL your hedgehog!
What type of bedding will you be using? I recommend aspen or pine shavings, pine pellets, or fleece. NEVER use cedar (it is toxic to hedgehogs).
What will you feed your hedgehog? Please list specific brands if you have some in mind! I use a mix of a few different high quality cat kibble. NEVER feed food made for hedgehogs, most of it is full of fillers and is complete garbage for them (although vets may try to tell you differently, don't listen to them about hedgehog diet).
Do you understand that if you cannot keep this hedgehog for whatever reason you will return it to the breeder (AKA Fairhaven Hedgehogs)?
Will this hedgehog be a pet for you, or a child? If this hedgehog will be for a child in the family, how old is the child?
Who will be the primary care giver to the hedgehog?
How many children live in the household and what are their ages?
Do you have any other specific questions or comments for us? Please list any questions you might have! We are more than happy to answer you questions!
