Easy To Follow Step-By-Step Instructions 

Thank you for your interest in our baby hedgehogs.   Adopting from us is very easy and in under 5 minutes you can be guaranteed a baby hedgehog!


Step 1:                   HABITAT

We are unlike most breeders.  We have habitat expectations. Our goal is to find forever homes for these fun little hedgehog babies and we believe the key to a happy hedgehog is their home!  So first and foremost the habitat must be a minimum 8 square feet.   We know finding the right habitat is time consuming and can be challenging as most pet stores sell hamster cages and habitats too small for hedgehogs.  We have available a Habitat Starter Kit that includes everything a hedgehog needs for life!

Step 2:                   DEPOSIT 

Otsego Hedgehogs requires a $50 deposit.  The deposit instantly reserves and guarantees you a baby hedgehog. The $50 is deducted off the total price and the balance is due at your adoption appointment. If you are purchasing the Habitat Starter Kit from us, and you are ready to place your deposit to reserve a baby from the next upcoming litters, than you can use this quick form to request an invoice

What are your habitat plans?

If you have an existing habitat  then you would need to text pictures with dimensions for approval to Kristal @ 952-261-8829.  All habitats must meet our size requirements  and expectations. All habitats must be approved prior to us sending a deposit invoice. 

Step 3: 


You pick the date and time that works for you and your family. 

I will do my best to accommodate YOUR schedule.

Step 4:                  ADOPTION DAY!!!!!

Due to the threat of coronavirus our adoption room is closed until futher notice. There is a SAFETY FIRST video in the middle of our home page that shows how we plan to keep adoptions safe!  Please see the video on Step 5 below.

We welcome families into our private adoption room and fully stocked hedgehog store! Adoption appointments can last up to an hour and my dedicated time to you is to answer any questions, educate you and allow time for you to hold a variety of babies until you have chosen the right pet for you and your family. Please be on time for your adoption appointment as there may be an appointment following yours.   I do supply a travel box with bedding for your new little baby to transport him/her home in safely or we have adorable little travel bags for purchase as well.

Step 5:                               PICK UP DAY 

Here is a video that discribes your habitat options and a form to submit for your habitat choices.

If you want both an Igloo and a Fleece Bed add $10

Mealworms are an important element of a hedgehogs diet, 8-10 per day are recommended. As an Insectivore, mealworms help a hedgehogs digestive system with processed cat food.  We have a large container of freeze dried mealworms available for $10. Do you want it included in your habitat kit? (If not I strongly recommend purchasing either mealworms, crickets, grubs, slugs, earthworms, superworms, waxworms, etc.) A hedgehog can become constipated and live in pain without insects in their daily diet.  

If you are trying to submit a form and it does not appear to be sending, make sure you did not forget to check a box

SIDE NOTES:   We offer anyone who purchases from Otsego Hedgehogs a LIFETIME SUPPORT GUARANTEE!   We have stayed in touch with lots and lots of families over the years.  We gladly answer any questions you have and will assist  you in any way possible.
