Tucson Hedgehogs

Habitat Route 
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 that the key to a happy hedgehog is their home! 
So first and foremost You must have an appropriate sized habitat!
 We know finding the right habitat that is Hedgie Approved can be time consuming and can be so challenging! 
Most pet stores sell hamster cages that are way too small, Or Chinchilla and Ferret cages that have wire flooring and just not enough floor space - these cages are not appropriate for hedgehogs.
But Don't Worry We are here to help!


You do not need to purchase a habitat from us, but you do need to provide adequate housing prior to bringing your new baby home! 

If you have an existing habitat or plan to purchase a habitat on your own... 

We respectfully request that you text or email pictures with dimensions for Habitat approval. 

If for any reason, your cage is not Hedgie friendly, we will work with you until it is hedgie stamped approved   :)

       Finding the perfect home for your new pet!  

We as pet owners want happy, healthy pets .....  as they bring happiness into our lives.  One huge key to a hedgehog's happiness is finding the right habitat.  Hedgehog's, while small in size, require a lot of space as they can run 3 - 5 miles a day!   A minimum 8 square feet is recommended.  There needs to be room in his / her new home for a 12" wheel,  a food and water bowl,  a sleepy home or igloo along with some space to do laps and go thru some tunnels and tubes.   

Pet stores typically carry small cages for guinea pigs, chinchilla's, and hamster's and  unfortunately those cages are approximately 3' x 18" so about 1/2 the recommended size.  Hedgehogs that live in a cage too small can often suffer from anxiety, depression and fear.  They primarily stay in their igloo and become afraid of people.  Often times it leads to obesity and even hibernation out of boredom.  The pet is soon forgotten about and then possibly re-homed.  I strive to find forever homes for my babies and I believe the right home makes a happy pet.


There are other options to consider as well.   Over the years,  I have either made or seen many habitats that I love.  Re-purposing furniture can be a fun project and allows for the new pet to join the family in an inconspicuous habitat.

A message regarding plastic bins:

I see buckets like this posted on the internet and I think about the poor quality of life a hedgehog would have living in this.  I want good homes for my pets.
