We offer lifelong support/ education to all of our clients, a 30-day health guarantee, and a lifetime WHS guarantee with our contracts.
As Hobby Breeders we are proud participants in a few select organizations and registries. We are very active within the community and work with with other ethical breeders to ensure the overall genetic quality of African Pygmy hedgehogs throughout the United States. As ethical breeders, we understand that very few four-toed hedgehogs were originally imported to the United States in the late 80's through the early 90's. Due to this North American hedgehog breeders have been working hard tracking lineage to ensure the hedgehogs we breed are less likely to have genetic defects such as cancers and Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome. Over time it has been determined that certain families produced ill hedgehogs they have since been identified and taken out of breeding programs throughout the United States. We work hard to educate the general public and advocate the necessity of selective breeding.
