Transport payments are due when you reserve your hedgehog! This is to avoid any delays in us booking transport for your hedgehog. We will notify about options available. We will only use USDA certified Ground transporters that we trust.
All balances need to be paid in full before your hedgehog leaves on transport.

We do have available spots on our waiting list. In order to be placed on our waiting list we need 2 things. An application on file and a deposit holding your spot. Once these requirements are met, we will contact you to let you know who's available once babies reach 4 weeks of age and are priced and sexed.

Health Guarantee and Warranty
Your hedgehog is guaranteed to be in good health, free of disease, and parasites at the time of purchase to the best of our knowledge. In the event your baby is discovered to have an illness, we will do everything in our power to remedy the issue as outlined in your signed adoption contract.
Because baby hedgehogs go through many changes during their early life, we can not guarantee color and temperament.
We will occasionally have surrendered or retired hedgehogs up for adoption. Older Hedgehogs and surrendered hedgehogs do not come with health guarantees.
We have a Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome lifetime warranty for babies born at Coastal Quills. Our WHS warranty is a guarantee that we will replace your hedgehog if your hedgehog does develop this disease. We understand we could never replace a family member, but we will try to ease your loss with a new baby to love (free of charge and when you are ready) Please note Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome cannot be confirmed (only suspected) while the hedgehog is alive it requires a confirmed animal autopsy by a licensed professional. Photos of the deceased hedgehog are requested, along with full colors and markings in the necropsy report.
If your hedgehog dies of any other genetic problem within 6 months of purchase, we will replace your hedgehog at equal value (with a necropsy performed to provide proof of no neglect). Photos of the deceased hedgehog are requested, along with full colors and markings in the necropsy report.
This guarantee does NOT apply to accidental death or injury; any treatable or communicable diseases; illness or injury due to improper care or diet; or anything caused by negligence or abuse. This guarantee also does not apply to any faults or defects that were disclosed at the time of purchase. Coastal Quills is not responsible for any veterinary costs.
After picking up your hedgehog, you have a 7-day period to take your hedgehog to a veterinarian. If the vet confirms an illness or parasites during the 7 day time period we will cover the cost of the generic medication used to treat as outlined in our contracts. If the vet confirms that your hedgehog is ill and the illness is clearly from Coastal Quills, we will pay the cost of generic medication to treat the illness.
Please don't hesitate to return a hedgehog to us if you can not provide care for it during any stage of its life. You are required to reach out prior to re-homing your baby adopted from us. We would prefer you to do so in order for us to transfer our lifetime WHS guarantee and lifelong support to the new owner. Due to the expenses associated with housing, treating, and re-homing any hedgehog surrendered we do not do "buybacks". Please know we will take them no questions asked and will travel to go get a hog in need or refer you to a local rescue that we know will help you!
We would never intentionally sell a sick hedgehog. If you find something, please contact us. In the event of an emergency please take your pet to the nearest emergency veterinarian!
* If your hedgehog starts to wobble or lose the use of a leg that does not mean it is WHS. WHS does NOT happen overnight or "suddenly". It progresses over many months. Consult a licensed veterinarian immediately if you notice anything concerning. Signs of wobbliness are usually signs of your hedgehog getting a cold or a possible ear infection. Sudden loss of movement of limbs can be from a stroke. Brain tumors can also cause symptoms similar to WHS.
NO refunds will be given NO exceptions.
We will not replace a hedgehog at any time if something happens to it due to negligence, injury, or improper diet.
We will ALWAYS take back one of our babies no matter what, at no cost to surrender.
We reserve the right to refuse sale to any individual or entity.
