Top Quality Hedgehogs

Click here to edit subtitle

Before you get a hedgehog, it is important that you be sure they are legal in your city and state. Since laws are continually changing, it is best that you contact your state Fish and Game Commission and check your county regulations. We'll do our best to keep a running list of the restrictions placed on hedgehogs, however, please realize that our information may go out of date from time to time.

Note that this list only pertains to the African Pygmy hedgehog and NOT to any other species of hedgehogs.
 
If you are buying from outside the state of Ky you may have to obtain a permit/s from your state before purchasing a Top Quality Hedgehog.
 
Maine - Maine requires both an importation and a possession permit. Contact the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife listed below for more information.

Wyoming: Permit needed (must call F&G to check if this is still true)
