Easy To Follow Step-By-Step Instructions
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!
Our habitat kit includes:
a 2 foot x 4 foot habitat with modified food tray that includes stainless steel food and water bowls, a 12 inch solid wheel, a large igloo (or cuddle sack), a bag of bedding, a custom cut litter box, a bag of litter, a litter scoop, and a bag of food.
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, OR if babies are available for picking NOW than you can use this quick form to request an invoice
Once your deposit is received Kristal send a confirmation text and if there are babies posted on the available babies page you can proceed to Step 4. If babies are not readily available at the moment your name will be added to our waitlist. Once the next litter of babies are ready Kristal starts at the top of the waitlist and will text families in order the deposits were recieved that they can choose a baby. If a family does not respond timely then we will move to the next family on the list.
Step 4: PICKING YOUR BABY!!!!
To choose a baby, visit our available baby page where we post videos and picking pictures of babies that have been weaned and ready for their new homes. When you have identified a baby you would like to adopt please text Kristal the name of the mama and description of the baby. It will be marked SOLD within minutes and you can proceed to Step 5. If do NOT see a baby your heart desires, you can easily pass the picking to the next family and you will have first choice of the next litter! We want you to have the perfect baby so you do NOT loose your place in line.)
