The Scottsdale Hedgehog society est. 2015


Contrary to what some may say, Hedgehogs make great pets, however; not everyone may make a great hedgehog owner. Hedgehogs are very friendly and lovable, they love to socialize and play.  Because of the fact that hedgehogs are prickly little pets they can be intimidating, and are better for a mature owner and not suggested for small children. You may get poked a few times by your pet hedgehog, but usually never is this a sign of aggression. Hedgehogs are nocturnal so they are great pets for someone who isn’t always home during the day. Hedgehogs are very active and playful during their waking hours and need at least 30 minutes of 1 on 1 time a day; but the more the better. When properly cared for hedgehogs make excellent pets, especially for those who don’t have the time or space for a dog or larger animal. Hedgehogs take patience, you will have to spend time playing with your pet to form a strong bond between you. I am sure you will be satisfied with your choice to own a hedgehog, and S.H.S. is here for you every step of the way! Happy Hedgehog *
