Hedgehog Policy & VIP Waiting List
Hedgehogs Terms of Service
Hoglets are for pet homes only. (Unless sold to a USDA licensed breeder or well known hobby breeder in the hedgehog community; our hedgehogs are sold as pets only and breeding is prohibited. Pedigrees will be provided to approved breeders but will not be released to pet only adoptions. )
A $50 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is required to reserve one of our hoglets or to get on our VIP waiting list. The deposit goes towards the price of the hedgehog and the remainder is due at pickup. Payment must be paid in full before buyer takes possession of hoglet or hoglet is transported.
Wean dates of hoglets are approximations and I can not guarantee a hoglet will be ready at any set time. A hoglet must meet a weight requirement of 180g and be eating and drinking on its own before they can leave our homestead. Pick up must be scheduled within one week (7 days) of the "ready to go home" date, unless we are working with transport then it will be depending on route schedule. If hoglet is not picked up within time frame and not paid in full the hoglet will be considered abandoned and relisted for another home. We understand that in some cases you may be unable to pick up your hedgehog within the required time frame. If the hedgehog has been fully paid for in advance, we are willing to extend the date for your scheduled pick up one more week, any longer a boarding fee of $5 a day will be charged.
*****Please understand that in addition to breeding hedgehogs, we have many other animals on the homestead. Cats in particular. If there is an allergy issue please let us know prior to scheduling your pick up so we can make other arrangements for pickup*****
Hoglet prices are based on color, pattern, temperament and sex. Price ranges from $150-$250. Hoglet colors and patterns are not guaranteed as this can change after their first quilling and has they grow.
Other than Pick ups scheduled; visits to our homestead are not allowed while babies are in the nest all hoglet's must be weaned from mom before we allow visits. This is to ensure we do not stress moms and ensure their safety and health from any outside pathogens.
We accept cash payments, debit or credit cards, and payments through PayPal, Venmo, and Facebook Pay. No checks/money orders accepted.
If Buyer has changed their mind or has found they are unable to care for hoglet, then the hoglet is to be returned to McIntire's Mini Mansion. Hedgehog is not to go to any other person/institution/shelter or rescue. I will take the hoglet back and find a suitable home unless otherwise agreed upon in writing/messaging.
Pickup is available at our home in Canyon Texas or shipped using USDA Ground Transport; this can be arranged if needed. Transport usually runs from $150-$200 depending on transport company and destination. Please note transport routes are planned and scheduled by transporters, but I will contact you as soon as I have route information. Please do not message transporters as this can prolong them planning routes.
We do not sale hoglet's to people who live in Georgia, California, Pennsylvania, the 5 burrows of New York City or Hawaii as hedgehogs are illegal in these states. Also you must be 18 years or older to purchase.
I guarantee hoglet is free from any communicable diseases and is of sound body, stable temperament and is in good general health. I provide lifetime health guarantee against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome. Buyer must supply copies of all medical findings/Necropsy to me. I then reserves the right to have said hedgehog checked and condition verified by my local vet. If WHS is found a replacement hedgehog will be offered. No money will be refunded. The breeder will give a replacement hedgehog when the next available hedgehog, of equal value becomes available. All medical and shipping costs are the sole responsibility of the Buyer. Necropsy by a licensed veterinarian must be performed and paid for by the buyer before any replacements are provided. Necropsy's can be obtained through Oregon State University or Colorado State University.
VIP wait list gets first choice of litters in order deposits are received only remaining hoglet's will be available to the general public.
*****The VIP list is for people who are absolutely set on getting one of our babies. A nonrefundable $50 deposit is required to reserve a baby. I call VIP list in order when babies are approximately 3-4 weeks old. VIP's can move their deposit on next litter (up to 3 times) if they do not like a baby or if there are not enough babies born or by chance babies didn't survive*****
