Hoosier Hedgehogs is located in Vincennes, IN. We have been breeding hedgehogs since 2012 and have been licensed since 2013. Our goals are to produce friendly healthy hedgehogs, good markings, and color. We try to breed known lines that produce healthy hedgehogs. We only have hedgehogs and that allows us to devote pretty much all of our time to them. We take pride in producing family companions, because this is what we do.
All babies are raised in home among family pets, children, and the hustle of everyday life. We put a lot of time into our babies to help socialize them. Our goal is not to add to animals needing homes, but to provide families with a new family member and companion.
As of April 19th, 2016.. Hoosier Hedgehogs is owned and operated by, Hilary, a single parent of two young Children. Derek, my spouse, died suddenly in a wreck, coming home from work one morning.
I am a USDA licensed Class A breeder (32-A-), meaning all I do is breed hedgehogs, raise hedgehogs, and sell hedgehogs to be well socialized healthy pets that hopefully become members of your family. The Class A License means I must breed more than I buy and resell. A (class B) USDA Licensed facility can be very different. Some may breed small scale, but the B License allows them to "deal" in hedgehogs and other animals. Which means it is okay for them to legally purchase animals at a lower cost and sell them for more. Class B allows them to buy and resell more often then they breed. Here at Hoosier Hedgehogs I concentrate only on hedgehogs. That's handling and caring for hedgehogs each and every day.
Please do you research on the different groups and forums about hedgehogs before getting one. Hedgehogs are not like a cat or dog, but can still make awesome companions as long as expectations are realistic. Hedgehogs do have quills and can be prickly. There is a lot more to these guys than just cuteness.
We do have some retired hedgehogs available to pet only homes on the available adults page.
