I've been following this ad and I got a response from him saying that he is asking for $225 for the "rehoming" of these babies. He said he's already "adopted" one out and I'd just hate to see someone else duped into buying one for that much $ not knowing anything about the health issues that could come with buying a baby with unknown lineage~ nevermind the fact that you are not permitted to sell on Craigslist!
This is not the kind of $ you pay for a rescue/adoption/rehome. Regarding the permit part~ I may be wrong but this is what I believed after speaking with the Dept of Wildlife etc myself when getting my own permit as well as checking their website.
Thanks for reading~ sorry, it just frustrates me.
His ad-People keep flagging him!
GREAT LOOKING.....ONE MALE AND 1 FEMALE.....GREAT COLORS.....EATING AND DRINKING GREAT AND SUPER FRIENDLY.....THEY COME WITH THEIR TRANSFERABLE PERMIT
UPDATE....1 MALE LEFT....FEMALE HAS ADOPTED OUT
...HE'S THE ONE WITH THE WHITE PATCHES...
Regarding the baby hedgehogs: If you are still asking $225 then it would constitute as selling. You can get a baby hedgehog from a licensed & established breeder for the same price or less. Do you know the babies' lineage/bloodline, can you guarantee against WHS (Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome), how are you transferring the permits? It is my understanding (I also speak from experience) that if you are selling these, the person that you are selling them to needs to acquire their own permit using the temporary receipt that you provide. You cannot transfer your own permit to someone else-your permit is for you only. You only need one permit for yourself and can have multiple hedgehogs with that permit-no need to get another for each hedgehog. Please do not take advantage of people who may not be aware of all laws~ as I'd hate to see someone in a sticky situation because of misinformation.
