Welcome to Valley Oasis Hedgehogs!
We have downsized for the year of 2016. We are not currently accepting any applications, and will only have about 2 litters this year. Keep an eye on our breeding schedule to know when we have babies available.
Valley Oasis Hedgehogs is a small hobby breeder. We are located in Salem, OR and we serve the Salem and Portland Metro Areas, as well as the greater Willamette Valley area. We are a quality breeder of African Pygmy Hedgehogs, and our priority is the health and longevity of our hedgehogs and their potential offspring. Our hedgehogs are from breeders in North Carolina, Washington, Florida and Utah; we searched long and hard for quality bloodlines, not just the ones that would be the easiest to obtain. We care for each of our animals as if they were our only.
Being a small hobby breeder means that we don't have babies available as often as larger breeders do, but since we only have a few litters at a time, we are confident that our babies are the happiest, friendliest, and healthiest babies in Oregon! Our babies come with a lifetime Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome (WHS) guarantee, and a two year genetic disease guarantee. In order to adopt a bub, we have a thorough application process, or reservation form, to ensure our hogs will receive the quality of care they are used to and deserve.
We are also involved in rescue and rehoming operations, so we are experienced with a number of different situations, and we pride ourselves on being an information resource for our community. We also never turn down a hedgehog in need. We are proud members of the Hedgehog Welfare Society, and the International Hedgehog Association; We are a rescue station for the IHA.
Why adopt from Valley Oasis Hedgehogs?
Because we are a small operation, we are able to devote one on one time with all of our hedgehogs and that our attention is divided among fewer animals. We started as a small rescue, and as such, the health and longevity of our animals are our top priority. We also have temperament as a top priority, and we believe early and frequent handling is a powerful tool to having a happy and outgoing baby hedgie.
We're very open with how we run our program. We gladly let people come into our hedgehog room and meet our hedgehogs, unless we have nesting or nursing mothers.
We have learned from our competitors mistakes and successes and strive to have the best customer relationships we possibly can. We are firm believers that having a healthy working relationship with adopters can make the whole adoption process smoother. We want nothing more than for our babies to go to the perfect homes, and we love seeing the excitement from expecting-hedgie parents. Whether it's their first or fifteenth hedgehog, the anticipation for a new addition is an exciting thing to see.
We not only have babies up for adoption, but we may also have adult hedgehogs available for adoption as well. We focus on making all of our hedgehogs and adopters happy; each hedgehog that leaves our home are healthy and well adjusted to noise, handling, baths, nail trimming, etc. Our application ensures that our hogs to go amazing homes, and not just anyone who can afford one.
We may also be a bit biased and think our hedgehogs are the cutest, so we have the cute-factor on our side as well.
