Next Litters are ready in Time for Christmas.
Please read the Christmas Waiting List rules on the Application Site BEFORE you fill out one.
Please think hard before purchasing ANY Animal as a Gift for Christmas. Consider the time and effort it take to take care of an Animal. Especially an Exotic Animal.
- Will you have the Time to take care of one for the next 5 Years?
- Do you have someone to take care of it when going on Vacation?
- What if your Pet gets sick? Are you willing to take it to the Vet immediately? (Vet Visits start at $80.- plus Treatment, and Medication Costs!)

Welcome to BumbleBeeHedgies!
The home of African Pygmy Hedgehogs
I am a USDA licensed hobby breeder of the White Bellied African Pygmy Hedgehog, located in Bremerton, Washington.
My goal is to breed healthy hedgehogs with great personality. Hedgehogs should be friendly and easy to handle. To achieve this, I handle my hedgehog babies as early as Mom allows me to.
As a hobby breeder, I enjoy raising exotic pets for the fun they bring into my home, not just for the additional income they make me. (It is not as lucrative as one may think!)
I offer support to all new (and not so new) hedgie owners throughout the hedgies lifetime.
Many future hedgehog owners ask how they get long with other pets. In most cases, honestly, the hedgehog does not really care. It is your other pets you should think about. How do they do around other, smaller animals? I have 2 cats and 2 dogs, and they get along fine. Be advised though, that even the friendliest dog or cat, can turn angry in a split second. Never leave your Hedgie unattended when both are running freely in the house!
***Bumble Bee Hedgies reserves the right to refuse a sale to anyone, and for any reason, if it is believed that the potential buyer is not a good fit for a hedgehog available for sale!
Thanks for visiting!
In Memory of Xavier. A Special Needs Hedgie who fought his odds...

Not all Breeders will allow you to see their herd and allow you to handle their animals before you paid a deposit. The following breeders will.
I support and recommend the Breeders listed below:
A big THANK YOU to Edith from Victorino's Hedgehog Garden for being such a great mentor. As the largest breeder in WA State, Edith amazes me with her dedication to her herd and all the work she does. Her herd has grown so large mostly, because she does not re-home her retired hedgies, but cares and nurtures them until the end.
