Unhappy I need help finding a good breeder

Hello everyone!
I'm looking forward to owning a hedgie, but I'm having alot of trouble finding a breeder. I live in Kingston, however I'm willing to travel to the Toronto area to pick one up because I already travel there often. I've emailed several people, but haven't heard back from anyone in almost three weeks. I would really prefer getting a hedgie from a breeder versus a pet store, and I have alot of time to find one, so please help me out! I'm not planning on getting a hedgehog until next fall, but I would like to be able to talk to a breeder and ask any questions that are not answered on their websites. I also need time to save up for the hedgie, since I am a student and have a small budget. (I am slowly accumulating all the supplies I need ) Thanks so much for any help!

Most breeders for some reason are slow to answer their emails I would just keep trying lol.
There's a few breeders from Canada listed here www.hedgehogbreeders.org
Carolina Storm Wheels, est. February 2010, over 10,000 sales to date, thanks for your support!

IMO, a breeder should be responding back within a couple of days at the most. If they can't/don't reply back promptly when someone is initially interested, then what good are they going to be for after sale support. I'd rule those breeders out.

When I was breeding I always got back to people quickly even if it was just to say, I got their email and will reply later.

Email can be unreliable at times, so if you have only written once, perhaps send another in case the first wasn't received.

There are no breeders in Kingston now that I have retired. On occasion I have rescues.

Retired from breeding

Rescue contact for both the Hedgehog Welfare Society and the IHA
Rescued over 70 (and counting) hedgehogs needing a new home

In Toronto there's Hedgehog Grove. The breeder was mentored by Nancy (the retired breeder above) and she's also active on this forum ^_^
