Buying Hedgehogs at an Expo
Rose City Hedgehogs has just started showing at the Portland and Seattle Reptile expos! Many times new hedgehog enthusiasts' first time seeing or even touching a hedgehog is when they pick up their new baby after having reserved it online. This can be very overwhelming for the new hedgehog owner. Having done our first Expo, I was thrilled with the many of you who got to hold and touch a hedgehog for the first time and honored that you returned to Rose City Hedgehogs to buy a new baby from us!
Are all hedgehogs from other vendors created equal? Unfortunately, they are not. Sometimes you will find pet stores or brokers who did not hand raise their hedgehogs selling at expos. Do your homework! There are many GOOD, USDA licensed breeders who are eager to educate and give you the experience of holding your first hedgehog!
At Rose city Hedgehogs we still have the application process at the expo. Our hedgehogs come with all of the same health guarantees and written contract. We also will not sell our hedgehogs without their complete cage set up. It is a package deal because I need to be sure my hedgies arrive at their new home with all of their needs met.
At the Expos you will find me benched next to Victorino's Hedgehog Garden, Bumble Bee Hedgies and Briar Patch Hedgehogs. All of these sweet ladies work very hard to raise and love their Babies! They have the CLEANEST hedgie rooms I have ever seen! I am so impressed with all of them and consider myself lucky to have them as friends! Don't forget to stop by their tables when you come to the shows!
