Adding happiness one hedgehog at a time!

At Hedgehog Valley, we have more than 24 years of experience in raising well socialized, healthy hedgehog babies! We put our experience to work for you by providing support before, during, and after your purchase, to make sure that you and your hedgehog are happy.

We take reservations on a first come, first serve basis in the order in which we receive requests. Babies must be picked up or paid for in full within 7 days of your reservation or your reservation will be cancelled. If you are interested in any of these babies, please  contact us for more information or to put a hedgehog on hold.

We raise our hedgehogs in our home and you are welcome to come pick up your baby by appointment. NOTICE: Due to pandemic, we are only doing ground transport or curbside pick up. Please read our guarantee policy so that we can answer any questions you might have before you purchase your hedgehog.

We can provide limited regional transport. If you meet up with us when we are traveling (pinned post of travel dates is in our Hedgehog Valley FaceBook feed) there is no charge. Private delivery within 120 miles of Iola KS is $75.

We are able to do  ground shipping (via Paws N Claws, Holm, or KD Small Animal Transport) within the US, when available. Shipping adds $85 to $230 to the cost, depending on which transporter is used and how many hedgehogs are in the shipment. This includes carrying cage, health certificate (when required or requested), and transport. It does not include the cost of the hedgehog. Some shippers are able to ship up to 4 hedgehogs together at no added transport cost. Each additional hedgehog needing an exam for a health certificate will require a $36 exam fee to be added to the health certificate.

All deliveries must be paid in full at least 7 days prior to shipping date.

We are happy to help you with any questions that you have.

All of our babies come with a hedgebag, a sample of our food mix, follow-up support, travel cage, and our guarantee. Our males are $150 to $300 and our females are $175 to $300, tax included. For a discussion of male/female differences, click here.

Thank you for choosing Hedgehog Valley!
