Unhappy Rehoming Young Male Hedgie in Colorado

We've had this little boy for almost eight months (he'll be one year old in March), but due to family health reasons and no fault of his own, we're looking into finding a new permanent home for him.

He is healthy, loves eating crickets (he does not like mealworms of any sort and has completely ignored them each time we've tried offering them to him), running on his bucket wheel, and hiding in the fleece "blanket" he has in his house. He's not the fondest of his weekly baths at first, but after holding him and calming him down he'll relax in your hand and let you brush his quills until they're clean.

He has never bitten anyone, but is more of an "explorer" type of hedgie than one that's comfortable sitting in a blanket on your lap watching evening television. His favorite thing to do is root around his fresh bedding, hunting for crickets. He has not been around anyone under the age of 16, and the only other animal he has interacted with is a small breed dog, which he ignores completely. We do not know his temperament around small children, large dogs, cats, or other hedgehogs.

We are heartbroken at the idea of rehoming him and would love to keep him, but we are unable to. Due to our current situation, we would appreciate a rehoming fee of $200 (negotiable), but if it means our hedgehog finds a home with a loving family, we'd be willing to part with him for free. He would go with his enclosure, food and water bowls, house, bedding, fleece scraps, shampoo, soft toothbrush (for bathing) and food (he eats Rachel Ray Nutrish cat food). The kids would like to keep his wheel and snuggle sack as mementos, since they were his main caretakers.

I have tried accessing the HWS website multiple times, but the page never loads no matter what browser or computer I use. We live in southern Colorado, so it's very hard to find anyone here that could responsibly take him. It's both difficult and dangerous to travel now that it's winter and the mountain roads get icy.

Please contact us here or at [email protected] if you or someone you know can help us find him a home. He is a very good hedgehog and would make an excellent family member.
