HuckStar Hedgehogs Policies
MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER!! We will never sell to minors and we will ask for ID upon pickup. If you are not 18
please have a parent or guardian fill out the application!
WE WILL NOT SELL TO RESIDENTS OF THE FOLLOWING STATES AS HEDGEHOGS ARE ILLEGAL THERE:
HuckStar Hedgehogs offers shipping for a minimum of 3 hedgehogs. We do require a minimum as we are not geographically close to any airport. We would be required to travel a minimum of 1.5 hours. If interested, we will offer a quote. Shipping costs will be flight, cost of crate, veterinary check, and fuel.
We do not sell opposite sex pairs or breeder hoglets. Our hoglets are companion only. HuckStar Hedgehogs retains partial ownership of all hoglets bought and sold. Breeding any pet hedgehog purchased from HuckStar Hedgehogs may result in legal action. We appreciate your understanding regarding our no breeder policy. BUYER AND PARTY SIGNING NON BREEDING CONTRACT, IS LIABLE FOR UPHOLDING ALL POLICIES.
Pedigrees will not be available to pet only homes. We enforce this rule to avoid back yard & unlicensed breeding, and falsification of our breeding records.
We do not sell animals for 4H projects. We have found that the animals that go to the fair are often highly stressed and need to have vet care afterwards. They are nocturnal animals that are prone to stress related health issues and respiratory distress. The accommodations at the fair are not ideal for hedgehogs since there is no way to control the heat in the barns. Thank you for understanding.
We will never trade or swap out one hedgehog for another after you have taken the animal home. Our litters are too infrequent to accommodate such requests. You are expected to commit to the life of the animal you choose. These are living creatures, and we will not accept returns for cash refunds. Be sure you are making the proper decision when taking on the responsibility of another life. However, if, when you arrive to pick up the hedgehog that you reserved, you decide that this particular animal is not the one that you want, you may choose from any weaned, available hedgehog. Please note that this may not always be possible.
If for any reason you can no longer care for your hedgehog you are required to contact us immediately, and surrender your hedgehog to HuckStar. We will rescue with no questions asked. We take any surrender's of unwanted hedgehogs, regardless of where they were purchased. Surrenders are just that, and we will not buy back. Because we then take on the financial burden and rehabilitation of that hog, we may re-home for a small re-homing fee. Keep watching our un-pedigreed and rescue page for potential adoptables.
Huckstar Hedgehogs reserves the right to refuse sale to anyone, for any reason.
Huckstar Hedgehogs offers a Life Time Guarantee against WHS, and one year guarantee against genetic disorders. Diagnosis must be confirmed via necropsy by a qualified Veterinary. We will refund purchase price in full, or offer one hedgehog. Purchaser is responsible for general health, safety, and veterinary costs of hoglet once he/she is no long in possession of HuckStar Hedgehogs.
We are available for support 24/7 via email or phone. Our goal is that you have the best knowledge and positive experience with your hedgehog.
Any photos sent to, or shared with, HuckStar Hedgehogs, of any of our hedgies can be used by HuckStar on our Facebook page, website, Instagram, etc. When filling out the application please use the code 320 in the area that it asks if you read this policy page.
Once babies are old enough to be photographed we will post them to this website and our Facebook page. Anyone that has filled out an application and has been approved through email can then contact us regarding an individual animal. Occasionally babies will reach weaning age without having been reserved. At that time anyone that has an approved application can make an appointment and can choose their baby from available animals.
We then require a non-refundable deposit of $50, that can be paid with PayPal. We will invoice you and allow you 24 hours from the time sent to pay the $50 reservation fee. If you wish to send a check or money order, we will allow 72 hours to receive. Those who do not respond/pay will forfeit their temporary hold to the next person and so on. Your $50 will apply to the final cost of the hoglet. Specials markings and colors may cost slightly more due to rarity.
If you are local, we encourage you to schedule visits with your hedgehog so they may be accustomed to your smell and touch. Hoglets wean from mama between 6-8 weeks. We do ask that you make arrangements to take your new hoglet home within 10-14 days of weaning date, and if needed please ask for alternate plan. Failing to do so may result in loss of deposit and purchase of your chosen baby. Also, if you miss your appointment and do not contact us through our email or by phone within 24 hours of the appointment we will assume that you are no longer interested. The hedgehog will be offered to the next person on the list, and your deposit will not be refunded. We do this from our homes, we are not a pet store that has set hours. If you are not responsible enough to call when you miss your appointment then you are not responsible enough to own a hedgehog.
WE DO NOT SELL LIVE ANIMALS AS SURPRISE GIFTS FOR OTHERS!! If you are purchasing for someone as a gift you will need to bring that person with you at the time of pickup. We go over all of the care information and answer any questions at that time. We need to speak with the person that will be the primary caregiver of the animal. We need to be sure that everyone is comfortable and ALL questions have been answered before the hoglet/hedgehog goes to his or her new home. If you feel you need to surprise someone then you could do it with the trip to us.
Hoglet deposit $50.00
Columbiana County Sales Tax does apply and will be calculated on total price at time of pickup.
