Default Hello from Northern VA :)

Greetings from Northern VA!
I am picking up my first hedgehog this weekend! Rather than going the breeder route, I decided to adopt from the Hedgehog Welfare Society. I have only ever adopted animals, so I figured there shouldn't be anything different with a Hedgie

I don't know WHO is going to be my new hedgie, but I know someone will be coming home with me on Saturday.
I can barely wait!

I bought my cage - Super Pet Extra-Large My First Home (which is 40" L X 18" W X 20" H), as well as the Clamp light and Ceramic Heat Light.
Tonight, I will be going shopping for anti-pill fleece for the cage liner

I am so excited, I can barely wait!
I look forward to reading these forums- I have already learned a lot!

Welcome to the forum!

Thank you for adopting and not buying!

I am sure whoever you end up with will make you happy. I am also sure that they will be thankful to you for choosing adoption.

Can't wait for pictures!

Welcome! Thank you for giving a hedgie a second chance! There is a facebook page with a bunch of members here and there is actually a raffle going on now (just for two more days). Tickets are $1 to win a Carolina Storm Wheel or a hedgie bag. Proceeds are going to the Hedgehog Welfare Society. Here's the link:

http://www.facebook.com/groups/hedge...enings/events/ The group is called Hedgehog Happenings in case the link doesn't work for some reason.

Thanks so much for thinking about adoptions. Can't wait to see your little one!

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!! Today was the big day. I came home with not one, but TWO hedgies.

First is Ollie- he's a year old, was surrendered to the shelter. He's shy (and a big boy- 500 g) but comes out quickly to explore.
Next is Treasure- another year old girl, and she's sweet as pie. She's a pinto- and her prior owners used to handle her w/ garden gloves.

I got both their cages all set up and they are sleeping comfortably! I can't wait for tonight when they wake up!
