Default Hedgehog owners in Maine?

My family and I are considering applying for permits to own a hedgehog. There isn't much information (that I can find) as to what the requirements are in order to be approved. Most out-of-state breeders whose websites I've seen seem to be unwilling to ship to Maine even if you have the permits to own and import them.
Anyone who owns or has owned hedgehogs in Maine -
What requirements did you have to meet in order to be approved for the permits?
How long was the application process?
Do you have to pay for the permits themselves in addition to paying to apply for them?
Do you have to pay to renew the permits annually?
Which breeder(s) did you get your hedgie from? Websites would be appreciated. We were told there was a breeder in Boothbay, ME but it seems to have stopped breeding or been closed down. We would greatly prefer a breeder we could visit as opposed to ordering a hedgie and not knowing for sure its personality, health, or the conditions in which the facility breeds and keeps their hedgies.
We haven't made a solid decision yet on whether or not we'll get one. The answers to these questions will be a contributing factor, as will be the availability of hedgie food and products at our local stores, and whether or not our area has a hedgie experienced vet. We're just beginning looking into the care of these guys and as I said before, we're not close to making a solid decision yet.
Thanks in advance for any help!
