Interested in adopting an older hedgehog?

Riddle’s Hedgehogs regularly adopts out rescues. Adoption fees are based on the age and temperament of the hedgehog and range between $20-$200. If you are interested, please submit a questionnaire.

Now is a great time to come and visit my available rescue and/or retired hedgehogs. I am taking an indefinite break from breeding to focus on my rescue work. Our family also operates a nonprofit animal sanctuary, and we are very passionate about our mission. Check us out!

Prior to visiting, you must submit a questionnaire to be pre-approved to take one home. Please be sure to do this prior to scheduling an appointment. It is quite a drive for some people, and we want to make sure you only need to make one trip. Want to make it an extra fun experience? Sign up for our sanctuary tour for 2 pm on Sundays and visit with my hedgehogs after the tour is complete.

You can schedule your visit online. You will get a confirmation with the address emailed and texted to you. Our physical address is 936 Reynolds Rd, Cross Junction, VA 22625

I look forward to meeting with you!



I’m excited to be meeting with new hedgehog owners soon.

Before coming to pick up your pet hedgehog, please take some time to watch my care video: 

Also, please be sure to look over my care sheet (Please note I recently switched to a new cat food brand – Chicken Soup for the Soul Indoor Cat Food ) : Getting Started Hedgehog Care Sheet

I have an online scheduler to help make things run more smoothly at pick up time. All of my available times are listed here:

I will be providing a travel carrier for the hedgehog’s ride home. The carrier contains bedding and a fleece blanket. These items are familiar to your hedgehog and will reduce stress for the ride home. I also provide 2+weeks of food.

Final hedgehog payments can be made at the time of pick up by cash or credit card. If you prefer to prepay, you can do that through the web site: PAY NOW You are also welcome to purchase a cage and other accessories for your hedgehog from that link. Cages must be pre-purchased through my web site in order to guarantee a cage will be ready for you at pick up.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
