Rescues and Retirees

If you need to find your hedgie a new home, please go here.

FireQuills doesn’t just offer baby hedgehogs. We also have hedgehogs who are ready to retire in style. Occasionally, there are hedgehogs we are fortunate enough to rescue. Sometimes they are owner-surrendered, and sometimes they were lost and picked up by an animal control center.

All of them need a home.

With that in mind, please look over our list of rescues and retirees and see if you are a good match for a family:

Surrendered and rescued hedgehogs needing a forever family:

HHT Spitfire:

Sold in conjunction with Happy Hogs (Lubbock, TX) about two years ago, this feisty boy is available again. His previous owners took very good care of him, but found a hedgehog did not fit well into their family dynamic. Unlike most surrenders and rescues, this boy comes with a health guarantee provided by Happy Hogs!


Skittles is an owner surrender. This two year old hedgie developed a benign cyst on her back that may need to be drained two times a year.  The placement of the cyst is above the spine and can cause discomfort when it is at it’s largest size.  Because of this, she may nip from pain.  Skittles needs a loving, understanding home that can help her live comfortably the rest of her life.

Adult hedgehogs ready to retire in style: $150 each or sold in pairs for $250

Firefoot- DOB: 9/18/15, Color: Standard grey, Personality: Sweetly feisty

PENDING- Soul Surfer- DOB: 2/21/16, Color: Black-eyed cinnacot, Personality: Sweet but shy. Born with an “extra elbow” on her front arm, she is unable to run on a wheel but manages to walk fine otherwise.

SOLD- Echo- DOB: 9/7/14, Color: Dark Grey, Personality: Lovable chubs!  Echo does love to run on her wheel but she also loves to eat.  Diet management will be required to keep her from gaining too much weight.

PENDING- Mettle- DOB: 11-1-13, Color: Fancy-face dark grey pinto, Personality: BEYOND SWEET. This older gal produced her last litter with us an I hate to see her go. I call her my Picaso girl because she has eyeliner around one eye, making it look bigger than the other.  My husband calls her Vangogh because she had to have an ear amputated after a 6 month battle with a massive keliod on the ear.  If you want a girl with a quirky personality, look no farther.

  1. What is the process that one has to go through to be able to rescue one of these hedgehogs that is available for rescue?

    • I prefer a phone conversation to discuss the specific needs of the hedgehog, if any. Our number one priority is to pair the right hedgie with the right human! You can also email us using the form on the home page to request more information. And, finally, you can schedule an appointment to meet the hedgehog via the home page.

  2. Hi there!

    I stumbled across your page in hopes of adopting an adult rescue hedgehog, and Katniss really caught my eyes!

    What is the process I should go to if I have the chance of adopting her?

    • Oops! Katniss went pretty quick and I need to take her down, but Solara and Darcy are both still available.

  3. I wanted to know if Kaylee Jewel is still available. I’m really interested in her and would very much like to adopt her.

    • I’m so sorry, Angel! Kaylee Jewel is no longer available, she has found her forever family. We still have Cheyenne and Panda, and stay tuned while we finish some updates to our site!

  4. I was wondering if you have any pictures of available rescue or retirees?

    • If we have any rescues or retirees available, we’ll post pics and info. If there isn’t anything posted, then happily, we don’t have any rescues that need homes!
