Default Help to Identify a possible Breeder or Farm in Montreal Can.

Hey everyone,
As some of you might know, I'm currently looking for a breeder or trusted source to find a hedgehog in the province of Newfoundland. At this point I'm not having much luck other than Pets Unlimited who told me they can order one in for me. While I have read a lot of bad things about the treatment of animals when it comes to Pets Unlimited I'm also a person that likes to check things out for myself. So, today I gave the 2 pets unlimited stores in St. John’s a call to ask them were they order the hedgehogs from. One of the stores gave me the name Merdo and the location was Montreal. Now this is where my problem starts I'm not sure if that's the way they spell it but if it is, I can't find any group with that name working out of Montreal. Also I asked if the animal would come with all its information, or if it was possible to get the information such as birth/health/parental. But I was told that I would not I would just get the animal.

Of course, I called back once I found no information but it seems that both the Pets Unlimited locations have become quite tight lipped about who they get the animals from, I was told the second time when I called, that they did not give out information on the companies that they get there animals from.

So, this is my call for help. I'm hoping that someone might know of this company (Merdo) and maybe be able to point in a direction to look, with such a dramatic change in willingness to give information, I'm more curious as to why at this point, and all but disgusted with the idea of getting a hedgehog from these people.

Thanks,
TheWhite

Yep, I know about Merdo. You won't get any information about the hedgehog and won't even necessarily get a baby. If an animal that is sent to a petstore is sick, it gets sent back to Merdo, nursed back to health and then sent out again.

Thanks Nancy, you don't happen to have (or know of) any public information about the company do you, I'm more curious then anything about them now as I can't see to locate any information myself.

I'm still trying to find a breeder to get a hedgehog from, I contact someone that was suggested to me on this site, but I'm still waiting for a response from them....

thanks again,
TheWhite

There pretty much no good breeders IN Montreal, but there are several around the surrounding areas
Have you tried contacting Josee LaPierre or Melanie (She comes on here under Soraya).

Thank you Nancy and shaelikestaquitos, I guess I did have the name wrong lol I wish they had more information about themselves on the site but I'm still looking.

Thanks for the tip shaelikestaquitos, I was trying to stay within NS,NB, I'm still not 100% on shipping one of these guys as it seems most breeders discourage it. What do you people think about shipping Hedgehogs?

I actually don't know if any breeders ship in Quebec :/
But I don't think anything is wrong with it as long as they take the proper precautions and don't ship out too far

I never saw a breeder that said they would ship and I do know there's not a lot (or no at al) breeder in the Maritimes

There's 2 in the Maritimes- one from NB and one from NS. I've only heard things about the breeder from NB, who is supposed to be very good.
https://hedgehogcentral.com/breedercanada.shtml There you go I'm sure there's more than are on that list, but it's a good start.

Thanks, I contacted the breeder in NB, but I received no response from my email. And the one in NS doesn't ship according to the info provided on the website.

Although, some good news. I got a call from the NFLD Gov. today saying that I got my permit and that it is being sent to be today! Yaaaaaa
