Thank you for considering sharing your home with a hedgehog!
Please keep in mind that we will not always have hedgehogs available for adoption in your area. If this is the case, we will keep your adoption application on file for future reference and notify you should a hedgehog need a new home in your area.
Please keep in mind that it is the policy of The Hedgehog Welfare Society NOT to adopt
to anyone under the age of 21 (no exceptions).
NOTE: The HWS does this as a service and does not charge for adoptions or relinquishments (although we always accept donations). The only exception to this would be if the hedgehog is in the care of one of the HWS Rescue Facilities. We do allow them to charge up to a $50 rehoming fee to cover some of their expenses while the hedgehog was in their care (vet bills, travel to pick up or deliver, etc.). An individual giving up their hedgehog cannot charge you for it. We can't assume that cages, wheels or any other equipment comes with the hedgehog, so you can negotiate that, but it is not part of the adoption.
Please fill out the application below. We strongly suggest you join the Hedgehog Welfare online discussion group to find out about available rescues and to keep updated on hedgehog care.
