Adding happiness one hedgehog at a time!

Hedgehog Valley offers 25+ years of experience in raising well socialized, healthy hedgehog babies. Our babies are home raised so they are used to children, dogs, cats, and other normal, busy household sounds. We provide support before, during, and after your purchase, to make sure that you and your hedgehog are happy.

Quality, variety, affordability.

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. All private deliveries must be paid in full at least 2 days prior to shipping date.

We work with transporters who provide ground shipping within the US. Click here for more information about  ground transportation.

We participate in The Hedgie List pedigree registry and the Transnational Hedgehog Coalition. We register our babies sold as PET (not for breeding) unless you discuss this with us prior to sale. We do not sell to breeders unless we are are mentoring or have a long established relationship.

*Line under development: That means that one or both parents have little to no relatedness to other hedgehogs currently in the US. Working with these lines internally for 3 to 4 generations allows me diversity of bloodline, so that when I need to bring in new animals to increase diversity again, my animals will be largely unrelated to other US hedgies. This benefits both my herd and other breeders who are seeking diverse lines at that time. If I released these lines at the same time that I am working them in to my original lines, then I would still have hedgies that share a lot of relatedness with everyone else's and the imported lines would only benefit 3 or 4 generations instead of the 6 to 8 that benefit from waiting.

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

All of our babies come with a starter pack including a hedgebag, a sample of our food mix, follow-up support, a travel cage, and our warranty. Our males are $150 to $300 and our females are $175 to $300, tax included.

Thank you for choosing Hedgehog Valley!

We are USDA licensed (48-A-1561).
