We reserve the right to
refuse to place a

we feel is not ideal for this
type of pet.
RESERVING A BABY
HEALTH GUARANTEE
SHIPPING / DELIVERY
PRICES
To reserve a baby, please complete our adoption  application (see link at left)
and return to us via email.
Please wait to send your deposit until after we
have contacted you AND HAVE APPROVED YOUR APPLICATION.
After we
receive your application and you are approved you can pay your deposit and we will
add you to the wait list. You do not have to pay a deposit to be added to the wait list
but those who have paid the
non-refundable hedgehog or Sugar Glider deposit
will be contacted first when a baby becomes available. After you are contacted and
have picked your baby we will then ask for your deposit to hold the baby for you if
your deposit has not already been paid.  Please keep in mind that, with live animals,
breeding success is never guaranteed, and as such, estimated wait time is never
guaranteed.  We do our best to keep our wait list moving along, but are not willing to
compromise the health and welfare of our animals in any way to do so. Please be
sure a hedgehog is for you and you are 100% committed in getting one from us
before paying your
non-refundable deposit.

Please note that our hedgehogs and Sugar Gliders are sold as pets only.  We do
not sell opposite sex hedgehogs or Gliders without an agreement to
neuter to buyers, only to established, properly-licensed breeders.
 

We require a $50 non-refundable hedgehog deposit and a $100 Sugar Glider
deposit by the age of two weeks or if we have contacted you after your baby has
turned 2 weeks of age the deposit will be expected within a few days. This deposit
will hold your baby until the age of six weeks for a hedgehog and 8 weeks for a
sugar glider.  After the age of six or 8 weeks, payment in full is required to hold a
baby.  If there have been no arrangements made to pick-up the baby and/or pay in
full by six weeks of age, you forfeit the $50 or $100 deposit and the baby goes back
on the available list.

We accept cash, money order (made out to Erica Nelsen) or Paypal payment (There
is a 4% surcharge for using this method- see link at left).
 NO PERSONAL CHECKS,
PLEASE.  
Lilac City Hedgehogs guarantees that, to the best of their knowledge, all
hedgehogs sold by us, whether from our breeding herd or not, are free from any
health problem or apparent diseases at the time of purchase. We guarantee that
all hedgehogs we sell are healthy for up to 30 days from date of pick-up,
delivery, or shipment against all pre-existing health problems that were present
before the hedgehog left our facility. (This guarantee does not apply to any
hedgehogs that are not bred from our breeding herd if the health problem is
found to be a congenital defect.) We recommend that all new owners take their
new hedgehog to a licensed veterinarian who regularly treats hedgehogs for a
full health evaluation within 7 days of purchase. Should your hedgehog develop
an illness or other health problem within the first 30 days of purchase, Lilac City
Hedgehogs will replace the hedgehog with another hedgehog that is available
now or in the near future. The unhealthy hedgehog must be returned within one
week of the illness becoming apparent and also must be seen by a licensed
veterinarian who regularly treats hedgehogs within that time or the health
guarantee is null and void. A written report from the veterinarian who first treats
the hedgehog, must accompany any returned hedgehog. The written report must
state the nature of the illness/disease/or other health problem and that it was
pre-existing at the time of purchase. This health guarantee is NOT transferable
from owner to owner, it only applies to the original owner that we sold the
hedgehog to.
Lilac City Hedgehogs, also, guarantees that all hedgehogs bred from our
breeding herd are free of any congenital defects for up to one year of age
(regardless of the purchase date). If a hedgehog that came from our breeding
herd dies from a congenital defect within one year of birth, we will replace the
hedgehog with another hedgehog that is available now or in the near future.
Proof of the congenital defect is required in a written document from a licensed
veterinarian who regularly treats hedgehogs. (This guarantee is transferable
from owner to owner, as long as the new owner contacts Lilac City Hedgehogs
within 1 week of purchase/transfer from the original owner that we sold the
hedgehog to. We will contact the original owner for verification of the sale/
transfer. Should we determine at that time that the hedgehog is not the original
hedgehog that we sold to them, the health guarantee will be null and void.) Lilac

other animal contracted from the hedgehog listed in this guarentee.

In addition, Lilac City Hedgehogs gives a lifetime guarantee for all hedgehogs
bred from our breeding herd against Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome or WHS that

responsibly, but the occasional defect may occur despite our best efforts. To
receive the replacement for a hedgehog that dies of WHS, a necropsy must be
performed by a licensed veterinarian of our choice at the expense of the buyer.  
If the test results confirm that the cause of death was Wobbly Hedgehog
Syndrome, then a replacement hedgehog will be provided.
The price for all Lilac City babies, regardless of color, temperment/personality,
or gender is$190. (includes 8.7% sales tax) . The $50 or $100 reservation
deposit goes towards the overall price of the hedgehog/Glider. Ask for Sugar
Glider Prices.

areas, delivery by car may be available.  Delivery fee is $0.50 per mile round
trip.

that it be returned to Lilac City Hedgehogs.  We will always accept a
hedgehog/Glider back and ensure that it has a loving home.  However, there is
no refund of purchase price given, except as specified in the health guarantee.

him/her please contact us with your new information so we can update our

established "visiting hours." Additionally, we wish to reduce unnecessary stress
on our animals by having too many visitors.  However, we welcome and
