Pricing/Payment

We require a $75 deposit to reserve a hedgehog baby with the balance due in CASH ONLY at pick-up. We do not accept any personal checks. PLEASE NOTE: We must charge 6% Michigan Sales Tax on all supplies and hedgehogs picked up at our home or anywhere within Michigan. We operate a licensed business and therefore are required to charge sales tax to residents of the state.

Hedgehog Health Guarantee

All hedgehog babies born at Blizzard Baby Hedgehogs will come with a 6 month congenital health guarantee. Our guarantee covers medical and physical defects, unless the illness is caused by neglect. All of our babies also come with a lifetime guarantee against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS). If your baby should develop WHS, they will be replaced at no charge with a new baby (except shipping charges). I will require a copy of a necropsy report showing positive WHS from a licensed veterinarian of my choice prior to replacing the baby.

Shipping Policy

We do ship our hedgehogs to legal states. We ship through Delta or United Airlines. Costs for shipping is approximately $175. This fee includes the cost of the flight, crate, supplies for the animal to fly, and also includes the cost of transportation to the airport. If you wish to purchase insurance for your new pet through the airlines a health certificate is required. There will be an additional charge for this service. In order to provide insurance through the airline, a vet visit is required so that he may issue a health certificate. The expense of the insurance purchased through the airlines is also an additional charge. If you do wish to purchase insurance please inform us at least 2 weeks in advance of shipping.

Deposit Policy

Please be certain that you want to purchase a hedgehog prior to sending us a deposit. Once we receive a deposit we do reserve the animal for you. If you should change your mind the deposit is non-refundable as we will have to now find a new home for the baby that was reserved for you. Deposits for hedgehogs are $75.
