Sam is awesome! Super friendly, professional and incredibly knowledgeable. He made the process for us adopting Pixie easy and answered all of our questions big and small. It is very easy to use the Granite State Hedgehog website. We were able to order our hedgehog quickly and we are so happy to have her. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy a hedgehog. Sam was very easygoing and made us feel incredibly at ease as first time hedgehog owners.

Made a visit less than an hour before closing time. Sam answered all of our questions and was patient with letting us make the decision to add to our family. He was very thorough with information and what to expect. Our son named him Peanut. Only regret we have is not making the trip sooner. Highly recommend.

My wife and I have always wanted to take care of some sort of small animal, and on a whim after a bit of research decided to make the drive from Williston, VT to Granite State Hedgehogs.We were utterly blown away by the owner's knowledge, approachability, and help in answering any questions we could think of. We adopted a baby and all the supplies we needed to take care of them.When a heat bulb blew late our first night, the owner was very helpful in providing advice to deal with the situation, alleviating a lot of panic. I don't think I can recommend Granite State Hedgehogs enough overall.
15:37 30 Mar 23
What an incredible store and experience! Sam is friendly, informative and passionate. He set us up with everything we needed as first time hedgehog parents. He gave exemplary customer service. I'm so grateful that I chose Granite State Hedgehogs!
02:34 28 Mar 23
Sam was awesome, small sanfu from Google giving the wrong hours(check their website first), he very awesomely came a took are of me even though the shop was "open". Which I appreciated greatly, I can say enough about how awesome this shop is and how much they truely care about the well being of the animals they sell. I look forward to my journey with my new pet !

We brought our girl Sunshine (now named Paris Quillton) home this past Saturday. We travelled to Franklin from Essex, Vermont and it was WELL worth the drive. When we walked in, we were so happy to see the owner, Sam. Sam is so knowledgeable and so passionate about the hedgies! He made sure to take the time to educate us on our new baby, even with people pouring in the door behind us. You can clearly tell that these little guys mean a lot to him and that he spends a good amount of time learning each hedgehog.As for the hedgehog, she is wonderful! She doesn’t mind being held, her ears touched, her face and belly touched…. As a matter of fact she seems to love it! She’s as sweet as can be and adapting nicely to her new home!I would 1000% recommend this place to not only anyone that may be interested in bringing home a baby themselves, but to others that want to expand their knowledge about such cute little creatures. I own many exotic pets and have never had such a wonderful experience bringing any of them home. Thank you Sam and Blue for our awesome girl and the experience!

I picked up my first hedgie last week from Granite State Hedgehogs and could not be more impressed! She came with a month supply of food, and the owner gave such a helpful explanation on her care, and also gave me a packet to take home which has been super helpful. It’s clear that he’s not only knowledgeable, but incredibly passionate about his hedgies, and I would absolutely make the trip from Maine again! She’s been the perfect addition to our little family, and I was given all the confidence I needed to care for her properly ☺️
00:29 15 Mar 23
Very knowledgeable, patient and responsive. The shop is clean and well stocked. Securing a hedgehog was a seamless process and they truly care about their animals. The owner took the time to go over all paperwork, and intro to the hedgehog’s needs and answered all questions. Their hedgehogs are well cared for and friendly. Thank you so much for all of your help!
00:56 14 Mar 23
We absolutely LOVE our hedgie. Sam was very helpful and answered all questions we had. He has a wonderful store with everything you need to care for you hedgehog.
13:30 03 Mar 23
This is my first time owning a hedgehog and I got a lovely, friendly and adorable little girl hedgehog from Sam! He was nothing but helpful and nice! I feel so comfortable reaching out for questions and his informational pamphlet has all the info i need!
01:43 03 Mar 23
Granite State Hedgehogs is a great place to purchase a hedgehog from. I would definitely get another hedgehog from here in the future. The store has everything you need to raise a healthy friend.
17:50 20 Feb 23
I picked up a hedgehog from Sam for my daughter's birthday and could not have asked for a better experience. Sam was very knowledgeable and gave me great tips and teaching so that I can properly care for our hedgehog. The store was clean and I was provided with plenty of resources as well as a way to contact Sam with any further questions that should arise. I 100% recommend Granite State Hedgehogs!
16:51 17 Feb 23
I’m a first time hedgehog owner. I placed a deposit on my hedgie Arctic online, and went to go pick him up a week later. Sam the owner is so knowledgeable about these animals and are absolutely a passion of his. He is super nice and he went through all the things I need to know about them. Sam is also SUPER quick to respond to chats on the website. It was about 9pm one night and I thought there might have been something wrong with my sweet hedgie, and Sam responded almost immediately (there was nothing wrong with him). To me, that shows how much he truly cares for these animals and his business. My hedgie is super social and friendly because Sam takes the time to make them used to being handled. Thank you Sam, you’re awesome!!!

We just adopted our second hedgehog from Sam and the Granite State Hedgehog team. They raise happy, healthy, well-socialized hedgehogs, as well as provide tips and tricks for care and play before you take your new hedgehog home. They are always available via chat if you have any questions about your hedgehog after you take him/her home, and they sell all the toys/cages/extras you need at their store. They're extremely knowledgeable and I cannot recommend them enough to those who ask me "where do you even get a hedgehog from?!". Whether you're sure you want to bring a new hedgehog home or you want to learn more about if a hedgehog is the right fit for you, Sam and the Granite State Hedgehogs team are the place to go!
01:05 03 Feb 23
Update: Our New girl Rayne is a little rockstar !I love hedgehogs 🦔 & if you do too or your looking for a pet adult or kids this really is the place. They deliver if you can't make it to the store, Sam is very knowledgeable & the hoglets are amazing!! I just got my 3rd baby & the delivery again was rite before Christmas 🤶.

We got a hedgehog from Sam at Granite State Hedgehogs as a Christmas gift for my adult daughter. They are every bit as adorable in person as they are in pictures. We housed the baby for about a week so it could be a surprise on Christmas Day, and we fell in love. So we'll be seeing Sam for one of our own soon. I absolutely recommend Granite State Hedgehogs to anyone considering one of these wonderful little creatures. Sam is very, very knowledgeable about them, and a real pleasure to deal with as well. Thanks Sam!
21:35 18 Jan 23
I just brought home the most adorable hedgehog that I got from Granite State Hedgehogs. The owner Sam made sure I got the perfect Hedgehog for me! He also made sure I was comfortable with all of the care little Harry Pawter would need! I highly recommend Granite State Hedgehogs!!
17:15 02 Jan 23
Sam was great to work with! Super easy and smooth process to adopt. I ordered Scarlet online and drove down to pick her up. Sam let me hold her whole he put together the paperwork and then gave me all of the info needed to care for her! I was blown away by how friendly she was with me. You can tell Sam gives his hedgies lots of attention! When we got home, she instantly began eating and settled right in.
13:26 23 Dec 22
Got my baby hedgehog in September 2021. Made my deposit online and went to pick her up two weeks later. No hassle at all. The staff love the animals and know everything about their care and health. You can purchase a cage and travel case among other accessories in the store. You’ll be given a guarantee for accommodation in the case your hedgehog has a degenerative neurological disease.
01:35 23 Dec 22
We just bought Coconut today. Sam was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about hedgehogs and how to care for them. We had a question so my daughter sent him a chat through their website. He responded to her in seconds. I would highly recommend Granite State hedgehogs!
23:49 17 Dec 22
We picked up Frank last week (formerly Hokey Pokey). Excellent, streamlined, professional experience. We left informed and ready to care for the little guy. It's clear that Frank was very well cared for. Thank you!
00:33 08 Dec 22
We just got our new hedgehog baby from this store and had a wonderful experience! Sam, the owner and breeder was great to work with- very helpful and informative. Our hedgehog is so sweet and friendly, and that shows just how much Sam loves and cares for them from the day they’re born. We are now hedgehog obsessed and when we get another one someday it will definitely be from Granite State Hedgehogs!
23:08 13 Nov 22
I bought my little guy almost 5 years ago and they were the best 5 years of my life. Axel was my little buddy through college and he was a brave curious little spikey nugget until the very end. The owner is very kind and knowledgeable. And when I'm ready to welcome another hedgehog into my life I am definitely returning to Granite.
02:29 11 Nov 22
Wait what! Only 5 stars... I'd give 10 if I was able. Highly recommended. Well worth the 2 hour trip from Maine. I was super impressed with the process from start to finish.So for the short version.*Ample Parking*Clean, Well Organized, Shop*Knowledgeable & Friendly Owner*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! WOULDN'T BUY ANYWHERE ELSENow continue reading for the complete review.The website was easy to follow, the chat feature was extremely helpful and Sam the owner, was super quick to reply. He answered all of our questions and concerns and with that, we placed our deposit. Also impressive is that after we placed our deposit, our chosen hedgie baby was removed from available babies.We arrived the next day. The drive to Franklin was great and Franklin itself was a cute little town worth exploring.The shop itself was easy to find and had ample parking along Franklin Street. We were able to park in front of the shop.The shop was amazing, it was very clean and well organized. You can find anything you need here for your hedges, they even have gifts and t-shirts for us heggie lovers. There are two open cages, one for the hedgies that have progressed past infancy and one where you are able to hold and start the bonding process with your new little love.Sam himself is welcoming, funny, and very very knowledgeable. You could immediately tell that he is proud of his shop and emanates love for all his animals.The process at the store was so carefree and enjoyable. We highly recommend that you pick up "The Ultimate Cage Setup". This has everything from A to Z to give your little love everything they need. It's a no brainer. ;). We were able to pick out every individual thing that came with the kit so it could be color coordinated if you want. There are also some upgrades that you can purchase for the Ultimate Ultimate package.So out comes are little Brooklyn, aka Miss Brooke. What a bundle of love. Sam explained everything in detail and even gave us some tips to help her get bonded to us. A little gentle rubbing on the top of their heads goes a long way.Once we spent about 1/2 hour bonding with her, we placed her in her carrier for the journey home. Sam started in with the adoption process. He was very easy going, knowledgeable, and gave plenty of opportunities for questions.We signed the paperwork and went over "The Book". lol. It was a document on an iPad that goes everything you need to know as a first time hedgie parent, full of tips and tricks, and important information. After this is completed, an exact copy of everything you signed and "The Book" are delivered to your email box.So I wouldn't miss anything in all my excitement I asked Sam if I may record the lesson and he welcomed it. Wanted to make sure that we were completely comfortable.So in closing. If you are thinking about becoming a hedgie parent, give Sam a call, better yet, visit his shop. Even if you're not ready to enter parenthood, you will meet a wonderful person, visit an amazing shop, find some great gifts for yourself, friends or family, and even get to see these wonderful little exotic loves in person.Here I am bonding with Miss Brooke.

Sam was funny and friendly. He was great with my kids too. He helped us pick out the best hedge hog for our family. We named our hedgehog Tonka, she’s extremely sweet and is a perfect fit for my 14 year old daughter. I would recommend granite state hedgehog to anyone looking for a friendly confident hedgehog. Thank you Sam and blue!
11:28 23 Oct 22
We got our sweet baby girl from Granite State Hedgehogs. Sam is very knowledgeable and gave us many tips on caring for her. Would recommend to anyone interested in hedgehogs.
15:59 17 Oct 22
Thank you Sam for being flexible in letting me pick up Cookie in person instead of delivery. Cookie is still getting used to my husband and I, but she is incredibly cute! I’m excited to have her as a new addition to our family! I highly recommend coming here!
01:57 06 Oct 22
Awesome place, got a hedgehog the day I went in
22:23 20 Sep 22
Wonderful experience with Sam. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered my chats very quickly before my purchase. My hedgehog was handled from birth and very social already when I picked her up. She came home and settled in quickly. This store also has all the supplies you would need for your hedgehog. Worth the over 3 1/2 hour drive for sure. Wish this store was closer!
23:51 15 Sep 22
The owner is very kind, knowledgable, and funny. He helped me connect with my new little baby, Cupcake, and helped me get everything I need for her. I appreciate everything he did to help me get her all set up and make sure I had the knowledge I needed to make sure she lives her best life.Edit:She's bringing me so much joy. You wouldn't think such a little animal would have such a big personality. She loves to nestle into everything and cuddle but isn't afraid to yell at you if you try to interrupt her play time. <3
19:04 13 Sep 22
As a first time hedgehog owner I am so glad I went to Granite State Hedgehogs! Sam the owner is extremely friendly and ensured that I felt ready to take care of my little Skittles. He made sure I had everything I needed for supplies and knew how to properly take care of her. She’s absolutely wonderful and now that’s she’s gotten used to the new space she’s opened up so much! The store is very well kept and clean and I couldn’t be happier that I found it!
14:03 22 Aug 22
Sam was very kind, informative, and supportive. He answered all my questions over their online chat and was very flexible with the time I was available. Even going out of his way to respond while he was at the movies! He made time for me to pickup my new friend on his day off and walked me through care. The hedgehog is very friendly already, which shows his level of attention and love to these animals. If you're thinking about adopting a hedgehog, Granite state hedgehogs is the right place to get one! Sam will help you make sure you are comfortable and confident to take your new hedgehog home.
23:10 16 Aug 22
The very best place to get your new hedgehog! Sam is the kindest breeder you could ask for and extremely helpful and really loves every one of these cute spikey fellas. We are so excited to bring home Kiwi today :) Thanks Sam you da best!
22:23 16 Aug 22
I am over the moon! I picked up my baby (after the very flexible Mr. Sam worked with my schedule) and I am in love with her. After being given a through orientation, I took home my sweet girl Patsy confident and ready to take good care of her. This place is phenomenal!
01:47 07 Aug 22
Sam was very helpful and friendly, gave us all the helpful reminders we might need. Our hedgehog baby is incredibly well socialized and curious about her surroundings.
00:44 07 Aug 22
Our beautiful baby Matilda is super social and has been from the first time we picked her up. We had an easy and informative buying experience and the transition home was simple, having bought the home and supply kit fromSam also. Everyone that has met Tilly can not believe how social she is, never balling up and always exploring. We are so happy to have her in our family and highly recommend Sam and Granite State Hedgehogs. Also- the best part is once we got Tilly home and settled, Sam is still always available via chat to answer any questions that arise and he always answers quickly and knowledgeably. Thank you Sam and Granite State Hedgehogs.

We had a great experience buying our first Hedgehog at Granite State Hedgehogs.The owner Sam is very knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful lesson in Hedgehog care. Sam’s passion for these sweet animals, and his sense of humor made this a fun, learning experience. It’s also comforting to know that Sam is available for any questions we may have in the future.We highly recommend and will definitely go back.
00:07 27 Jul 22
We couldn’t be happier with our experience at Granite State Hedgehogs. There isn’t one thing that could have been done better. Sam was so friendly, informative and knowledgeable. He answered every question thoroughly and in a way that was easily understood. He was so accommodating to our needs and was happy to go out of his way to help us. You could see the love that he has for every single hedgehog by seeing him interact with them and also by the way that he talks about them. You can tell that hedgehogs are truly his passion and we would totally recommend visiting Sam if you’re interested in making a hedgehog a member of your family. Thanks so much Sam and we’ll be sure to visit next time we’re in the area!

Sam provided top notch service, professionalism and education on the care of Toffee . Thank you so much !!
19:08 09 Jul 22

He was very knowledgeable and made sure we had everything that we needed. I definitely recommend Granite State Hedgehog if you are looking for a sweet and spikey companion!
12:51 10 Jun 22
I got my first hedgehog today. After years of wanting one I was finally able to get one and I am just in love! I wanted to stay local when looking for a place that sells hedgehogs and was really excited when I found Granite State Hedgehogs. The reviews are amazing and I just knew it would be the perfect place. From the website to the actual building everything was easy, friendly, and clean. Sam was very welcoming (and Blue), polite, and helpful. He allowed me to bond with the hedgehog I chose and see if he was a good fit, he is. When it came to the end of the transacting Sam gave me very helpful information on my new friend to keep him healthy and safe. He even has the resource of the online live chat for whenever anyone has questions and let me just say I am super thankful for it. As a new owner I’m gonna have a few questions at some point and it’s nice to have a trustworthy source like Sam. I will forever be thankful for the care and support I was provided and if anyone is looking for a hedgehog I would 100% recommend Granite State Hedgehogs!!!!! Thank you Sam!
22:08 02 Jun 22
Picked up our little hedgehog a couple weeks ago and Sam was there to help us. He was great and very knowledgeable. The shop was also very cute. Definitely recommend them!

Purchase it from Granite State Hedgehogs! They hook you up with all the things a hedgehog needs in its new home!The best part, Sam was so patient in explaining ALL.THE.DETAILS in what it takes to make your hedgehog happy and healthy! Bonus, we had the best time patting Blue, the hedgehog protecting pup!As a first time hedgehog owning home, Granite State Hedgehogs has definitely set us up for success! Strongly and highly recommend!!!
01:27 27 May 22
The team at Granite State Hedgehogs went above and beyond to make sure that I and, more importantly, my daughter had a first-class experience receiving the newest addition to our family: a perfect baby hedgehog. I would recommend them to anybody. THANK YOU!
19:48 24 May 22
What an amazing experience!! Sam was extremely nice, answered all of my questions, and carried my cage out to my car on a rainy day!! Plus Blue was an adorable shop pup! We adopted our first hedgehog from them and will ONLY be going to them regarding any questions or advice relating to our sweet Moonpie. Thank you guys so much for making this an amazing experience I've wanted a hedgehog since I was about 9 and as of today I have one!!
19:31 19 May 22
Went here to get a hedgehog for my sons birthday. It’s a 2 n 1/2 hour drive and worth every minute. Sam was super helpful and informative. The facility is super clean and cute. Super cute retail items like t-shirts and jewelry. We left with a quilly little buddy and set up for everything we needed to get started! Thank you so much for making this such a great experience!
16:18 05 May 22
We stopped by on our way through this area wondering what it was all about. The man who owns it was so nice and knowledgeable. He allowed my kids and I to hold a hedgehog and even brought out a baby hedgehog to show us. I don't think we will be getting a hedge hog but if we ever did this would be the place to get one! The owner is obviously passionate and very kind to his customers, even the ones like us who are just curious and stopped by.
12:09 04 May 22
They were very informative and delivered our little hedgie in perfect condition. Super nice and thorough, making sure we understood everything, reaching out for support is quick and easy.
22:17 01 May 22
Granite State is very knowledgeable. I reserved one hedgie, but they shared a variety of sweet hedgies at my request so I could feel confident I took home the right pet for my family. Their site has a chat they respond to at anytime. I highly recommend them (and hedgehogs as pets!)
19:57 28 Apr 22
Ended up unexpetedly going home with a pocket pet.. Helpful staff and a good selection of supplies. Definitely recommend!
14:37 28 Apr 22
I got my hedgie here, love him! Good service, cute store set up and hedgies... 🦔🦔🦔

The owner was so incredibly kind and helpful. Our little hedgehog is very sweet. They were patient and took a lot of time to help answer our questions and ensure we had everything we needed to be a successful. Our little guy is settling in and making himself at home.
19:56 27 Apr 22
I've had a wonderful experience at Granite State Hedgehogs! They are always there to answer questions and are very nice and friendly! I dealt with Sam at the store and he was very nice and informative. And Blue was too funny!
02:09 20 Apr 22
I received my beautiful baby Marlow from here just a week ago and I'm beyond happy with him. This place supplied me with everything I didn't yet have and gave me a detailed file of any care information I could possibly need. One of the owners also gave me his own tips and tricks on how to make care and bonding a lot easier. If I ever decide to adopt again it will absolutely be from here.
15:20 18 Apr 22
Very nice owners and the hogs are the best!!
20:09 19 Mar 22
i adopted a babygirl a week or 2 ago and she’s the sweetest. if you’re looking to adopt a baby hedgehog this is the best place to go! they are very easy to talk to and were a lot of help when it came to setting up a day and figuring out when to bring her to me. i’m very satisfied!! couldn’t have had a better experience.
20:43 17 Mar 22
As a first time hedgehog owner this place made me feel ready! Their shop was super cute and clean. Everything was very professional! The workers were also supper nice! Sam helped us pick out our stuff and get our baby. We also were emailed a form of his birthday etc and a booklet with hedgehog tips and trick that Sam went over with us in the store. Sam even carried the cage setup out to our car for us! I’m so impressed and happy with granite state. I loved it there and I’m sure you would too! Not to mention all the hedgehogs were in great shape, heathy, and super sweet! Definetly recommend!
00:30 16 Mar 22
So extremely happy with my purchase! Daisy is so sweet and such a friendly baby. I highly recommend Granite State Hedgehogs!
14:27 07 Mar 22
We picked up ‘Harley’ on New Year’s Day and we could not have kicked off the new year any better. ‘Harley’ is now ‘Ollie’ and we are just head over heels in love with the little guy. He is sweet, fun, and has a wonderful personality. As new hedgie parents we weren’t sure what to expect but ‘Ollie’ has made us hedgehog crazy (in a good way). I would definitely recommend Granite State Hedgehog if you are considering a hedgie. They were knowledgeable and answered all of our questions to ensure we were confident taking our lil’ guy home.
00:14 07 Mar 22
I absolutely loved this place and highly recommend it! We had the pleasure of having Sam help my daughter pick out her first hedgehog, Daisy. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. Sam also went out of his way to help me pull off a little Christmas surprise for my daughter. Daisy's doing amazingly well and is a welcomed addition to our family! :)
06:44 06 Mar 22
Picked up our baby this a.m from these guys! Super helpful Sam is super cool ! Highly recommended anyone looming into getting a hedgehog to get ahold of them!
20:28 03 Mar 22
Great breeders! Just got my hedgehog yesterday and is is very cuddly. Very informative and made sure I had lots of information and supplies.

I can’t say enough good things about Granite State Hedgehog!!! So helpful and friendly, and they really do hand deliver your hedgehog! The hedgehog we got is beautiful and so friendly! They deserve 10 stars I can’t thank you enough!
02:22 23 Feb 22
A great experience for my first time purchasing a hedgehog. I really appreciate the delivery service. My hedgehog Jade is very social and friendly! Thank you to Granite State Hedgehogs.

We love our new hedgehog. The shop was very clean. Sam was very friendly and helpful and answered all of our questions. Although it was a drive, I highly recommend them! We are first time hedgehog owners and feel educated and prepared with everything that we got from them.
01:35 07 Feb 22
clean, friendly & experienced. i have adopted two hedgies from them and would not hesitate to go back!
18:33 01 Feb 22
I got my little guy Boomer this week and he is the friendliest little guy! I would highly recommend Granite State Hedgehogs!
07:58 29 Jan 22
I walked in today and got my first ever hedgehog and was greeted by Sam he was very knowledgeable about everything and gave me a lot of tips on how to take care of him one of the coolest shop I have ever been too
22:10 25 Jan 22
First time hedgie mom Picked up my baby Moose 1/20 he is amazing and adjusting greatly! Highly recommend this establishment they are very knowledgeable and take obvious great care of these amazing babies. Sam was awesome I left feeling very confident that I had all of the necessary supplies and information. As well as knowing they are available should any questions come up. they were also gracious about working with me on picking him up a little late due to my work schedule. Well worth the drive!
16:57 25 Jan 22
Such an amazing place! I got help from Sam and he was fantastic with answering all and any questions I had. He makes sure no one leaves the store without knowing absolutely everything there is to know about how to care for hedgehogs. The baby hedgehogs are the cutest and sweetest things ever and I can't wait to get to know my new baby Penny.
00:42 23 Jan 22
Suprr knowledgable owner, very clean store, lots in stock, and all the hedgehogs are very sweet and healthy! Got a little girl there and she is amazing. Great place, worth the drive!

4 years ago I did a year of research before considering bringing a hedgehog into my life. I found Granite State Hedgehogs during that research and began using their chat asking questions before I purchased my first boy from them 🥰 sadly pets do not out live us and Niffler passed away. I told myself that I would not get another hedgehog until I fell in love with a baby hedgehog picture on Granite State Hedgehogs website, I saw "Chip" and immediately fell in love. Today I met with them and brought my new little boy home and he has won over my heart for sure. Sam was awesome and it is clear they care about their Hedgehogs and want the best for them. Thank you so much again for all your help

Popsicle, AKA Franklin (based on the town he was born in!) has been an amazing addition to the family. He's happy, healthy, and couldn't be more adorable. Sam was really great with the introduction. I felt like I knew what to expect after his lesson on ownership. The shop is clean, well lit, and well stocked. It is an awesome little place! Highly recommend!
16:24 21 Dec 21
This place was a pleasant for both children and adults if you want to see hedgehogs. What I want to make note, those little animals are sensitive, need to be carried with a lot of care. Otherwise, a very fun experience. I do plan on buying a set of them in the future. Thank for allowing of to carry those little guys.
05:43 15 Dec 21
I always have a great experience and the staff is always great. The hogs are just amazing too. Thank you guys for all of the hedgehog stuff. Thanks Sam and Jay

19:58 14 Dec 21
I always have a great experience here!!! Jay in the background was a great help along with Sam!!! I would always recommend coming here even if it is just looking at hedgehogs or needing supplies for hedgehogs! Never a bad experience!
19:58 14 Dec 21
Sam was super helpful when I was picking up the hedgehog. The website Jay has made is super helpful and easy to navigate They also have live texting which is amazing for any immediate questions you have. I would highly recommend them for your hedgehog needs.
17:02 12 Dec 21
Beautiful babies, very helpful and reliable staff. If your looking for a new addition, this is the best choice!
13:22 11 Dec 21
I had an amazing experience with them! My baby is in perfect health and is happy. I was able to get everything I needed fot him and got all my questions answered. They will always have my business!
17:49 06 Dec 21
I recently bought and picked up Olaf from them. They were incredibly patient and knowledgeable. They emailed everything I would need to know about him, which they also went over when I picked him up. I was coming from over an hour away and they stayed open for me when I was running late. Olaf came already socialized even though he was only 6 weeks which made the transition very smooth for him. He is such a sweet hedgehog and loves to be held and carried around. I will definitely do further business with them and have suggested others to check them out as well.
20:23 29 Nov 21
I received my baby boy Yeti (formally diamond) a couple weeks ago. He is the absolute sweetest and happiest little boy!! He’s healthy active and you can tell well socialized :) thank you so much for my little man!
20:06 24 Oct 21
Super nice and knowledgeable. I totally recommend them if anyone is looking to get a hedgehog.
18:14 22 Oct 21
These people are awesome! They are very knowledgeable about hedgehog care and their animals are super friendly! I am so happy with my new baby, and I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in getting a hedgehog!
16:01 08 Oct 21
I got my baby three years ago in October. They are amazing people and today 10/5/21 at 10:15 pm, my baby passed. She was three years old and the most amazing hedgehog in the world. I want to thank Jay and his assistant for comforting me and that I recommend this amazing place for everyone! Thanks Jay for everything along with your amazing assistant! May Poco Rest In Peace! This adorable angel earned her wings
14:31 06 Oct 21
I just recently adopted my second hedgie from Granite State. They are so wonderful and helpful. They are really all about the hedgehogs. Very responsive and always ready to help. If you are looking for a great hedgehog breeder, look no further.
20:51 28 Sep 21
I would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for a hedgehog we got out baby boy Theo ask Theodore. Very clean everyone there is very knowledgeable Sam helped us with Theo and told us the dos and don't on caring for our boy we are very Happy and our kids will be happy too ❤
17:57 18 Sep 21
They are great! Super knowledgeable, super friendly. If you are going to get a hedgehog this is the place to get it. They will run you through everything you will need to know and they have everything in store you would need.
15:32 14 Sep 21
I got my little Hedgie back in the mid of July, I was super nervous about picking up him up because I am a first time Hedgie mom but Sam did an amazing job answering every single question and made me feel super comfortable in regards to hedgehog care. I would highly recommend getting your hedgie from here as they are so super helpful and always answer any question you have promptly!Here is a picture of my little Hamilton chilling on the couch enjoying his new home! Wouldn't mind adding new little hediges to the family from here in the future!
18:43 13 Sep 21
Thorough professionals, yet passionate and protective of the animals they sell. I really appreciated the time they took to educate us about Hazel. Highly recommended!
02:16 12 Sep 21
I just picked up my first hedgie today and was very pleased with my experience. Sam was excellent and knowledgeable. I was nervous going in to pick up Felix, but that all went away after talking through the best way to care for my new hedgehog! I will not hesitate to go back if I am ever in need of another friend.I also feel that their willingness to answer any questions or concerns that I may have going forward shows the true integrity of the owners and shop.
04:57 10 Sep 21
My girlfriend and I got our hedgehog Midnight about 2 weeks ago. Sam was very nice and told us everything we needed to know. We felt very comfortable there and I would recommend anyone who wants to buy a hedgehog to get one from here. Sam also has a dog there for safety which I thought was nice and made me feel safe as well. The hedgehogs seem very well taken care of and Midnight has not gave us any trouble.5 stars.
21:20 09 Sep 21
I just purchased my very first hedgehog from Granite State Hedgehog. She is adorable and already very friendly. Ayane was very helpful and quick to respond to my questions when I reached out on the online chat. I love how I will be able to reach out and continue to ask questions on this platform. Everyone was very helpful and informative each time I visited this shop. I highly recommend going here if you are thinking about adding a “Hedgie to your family!”
17:17 05 Sep 21
My boyfriend and I were up in Bethlehem hiking and for a while now he’s been researching on caring for and keeping a hedgehog as a pet. Sure enough, an hour into our ride home was Granite State Hedgehogs. He contacted Ayane and she was so quick to respond. We were matched with our 6week old girl hedgehog, Sasha! Best thing is that even though closed on a Monday, we were able to make an appointment with co owner Sam to meet her, very inconvenient as we reside in central MA.We picked her out, Sam gave us a full lowdown on how to care for her, and they even provided us a health guarantee, so we are confident in taking home our new family member and not running into any issues. Sam was able to answer all our questions, provide us adequate sources via the booklet they provide us for vets, food, etc. All in all, for a first-time investment in a new animal, this was far from a situation that could of left us anxious. Grateful for Ayane and Sam’s time, and how easy it is to continue communicating with them if we ever had any questions. No photos at the moment, as she’s completely tucked in after a two hour ride home, but she will be unconditionally loved. Thank you GSH.
00:55 31 Aug 21
We got Banjo back in Oct 2020 and he has turned into our prickly little best friend! Thanks to GSH for the advice and for the happy little dude!
02:12 23 Aug 21
Breat place, friendly environment with dedicated staff.
19:30 20 Aug 21
sam was the best we live laugh love piper
16:40 20 Aug 21
My boyfriend and I purchased a hedgehog named “Cookie” today (his new name is Onyx). I highly recommend getting a hedgehog from here if you’re looking to get one! We were greeted by Sam when we arrived and he was very nice. He brought out a few hedgehogs out for me to choose from and was very patient with me while I made my decision. Onyx is very chill and doesn’t mind handling which is great, you can definitely tell they really care about their hedgehogs. Sam answered any questions I had and let me know if I had any question in the future to just text the live chat they provide on their website. I will definitely be coming back for hedgehog products and maybe even another hedgehog soon! Overall great experience!
23:08 19 Aug 21
Had a great experience for the second time getting a hedgehog from Granite State Hedgehogs and will always recommend them for getting adorable hedgies!
22:41 14 Aug 21
Super friendly people, Sam was very helpful and explained everything perfectly. We are so excited to have our new hedgehog. Thank you!
22:05 13 Aug 21
This facility is top notch. Super clean and hedgehogs look very healthy. Staff is knowledgeable and truly cares about each hedgehog that goes out their door. Would recommend it to anyone considering adopting a hedgehog.
22:33 11 Aug 21
My boyfriend and I had our hedge hog delivered by Sam yesterday, he was very thorough and answered all the questions that we had! They clearly care about the little guys. I highly recommend purchasing from them! They’re amazing.
15:21 09 Aug 21
I loved how Ayane was very intuitive about questions I had about having a baby hedgehog for my first time. They also delivered the hedgehog to me which was even more awesome! I highly recommend purchasing their babies :)
03:19 08 Aug 21
I hadn't been able to find any well handled hedgehogs at home and I had been searching for months. I went on vacation to Maine and found they were on my way home so I reserved a hedgehog to get him on my way home. I was a little worried that they weren't open on the day I was going home so I called them. Sam came in just so I could come in, interact with Gus and bring him home. I was so impressed that he took time out of his day to come in just so he could help me understand my hedgehog better and let me bring him home with me. You can definitely tell they care about their hedgehogs because Gus is already super friendly with me and because of all the time Sam took to help me understand how to best care for him. He also let me know that they have a real time messaging system on their website that could get me into contact with them and get help with anything up to needing a vet for Gus. If I get another hedgehog it will be through them. Loved this place!

We traveled 2 hours to go pick up our hedgehog. It was WELL worth it. Sam was amazing help! I do not recommend going on craigslist to get a hedgehog. Spend the extra dollar and go to Granite State. We love our Mojo!
19:39 04 Aug 21
Paco has been a big part of our lives since we have gotten him. He is very active and spoiled by everyone in the house. Thank you for giving us our little guy. Wanted to share a picture, but couldn't. :)
16:28 04 Aug 21
Awesome customer service!!! What great people to work with!! There was a misunderstanding on my part and I got a text and a phone call to make sure it was settled!! Not to mention my family and I absolutely love our little man!!! ❤ I will never go to anybody else for a hedgehog!!! Thank you for being so caring!!!!
01:43 03 Aug 21
We adopted a great hedgehog from Granite State. Sam was perfectly professional and super helpful.
15:13 01 Aug 21
I have had my baby for about three days now! My boyfriend and I drove down to New Hampshire on Thursday to pick up our baby Pamina (formally pixie) as our first pet! She is absolutely darling and snuggly. We were quickly helped by Sam and Blue and left with that ultimate cage package feeling confident about giving Pamina a great long life! I definitely recommend adopting a baby from them!
20:08 25 Jul 21
The people who run this place are truly amazing. They’re so sweet and genuinely care about the hedgehogs they have and are breeding. We drove 2hrs to get to this place after being not being able to find one in MA. In MA we went to this pet store where I knew that had them but they had one left and it was sold. Then I came across this place and my mind was blown away. The website is so neat and organized. Their store is beautiful and you can truly tell how genuine they really are. I feel so happy I got the hedgehog from here and not that other pet store I mentioned. Granite state hedgehogs gave us an hour lesson on everything we needed to know to keep our hedgehog happy! Also they have an amazing text message system on their website that is awesome. They respond pretty quick and you can ask pretty any question about your hedgehog and they will give the best advice they can. I just can’t say enough how amazing this place was. I for sure recommend 10/10
13:04 23 Jul 21
Picked up my little baby a week ago Tuesday! Drove down to the shop from Maine and it was so worth it! Was greeted by Blue and Sam who were both very nice! Sam brought out my baby and let me get to know her and I fell in love with how cute and sweet she was! Sam spent around half an hour going over stuff with me and answering any questions I had. I highly recommend getting a hedgehog from them if you are looking to get one! Also even before I picked a hedgehog they were always so responsive in the chat on the website to any questions I had! Here’s my baby Radar!
00:13 19 Jul 21
Finding a trustworthy place to find a hedgehog is really hard when you’re in New England, and I was referred to granite state by 3 different businesses. If you’re looking to get a hedgehog, I would 1000% go through granite state, and waiting for more hedgehogs to be available would be more worth it than finding a different place to get your hedgie. Sam and his dog Blue definitely make the overall experience better as well!!! It is very clear that they handle and socialize their hedgehogs frequently as well which is a major, MAJOR plus. Thank you granite state for giving me the best hedgehog I could ask for!!!!!!
18:24 18 Jul 21
Just picked up charcoal the friendliest little hedge hog and Sam made sure that I’d know and have everything to give him an awesome life in his new home I couldn’t imagine anyone else having more passion about these amazing creatures
16:09 13 Jul 21
Sam and his Blue (who is extremely sweet) met us outside of normal business hours to pick up our hedgehog. We were extremely appreciative of his willingness to be accommodating! He spent a great deal of time with us making sure our almost 10 year old and both parents were comfortable handling Scout. He went over the most important things we needed to know and sent me information via e-mail that we have already referred to several times in caring for our new addition. We also bought the ultimate cage package from Granite State. I highly recommend it! It came with all the basics! Sam even went so far as to check the heat lamp before we left to be sure Scout had a working lamp when we arrived home. Communication with Granite State Hedgehogs is also quick and easy through their chat function on the website. I communicated with them several times, and found them to be very responsive and helpful. I cannot recommend Granite State Hedgehogs!
13:44 06 Jul 21
Owners are very responsive to online questions. Sam was very patient and kind with helping to chose a hedgehog and ensuring we were a good fit. Very knowledgeable. Great Experience!
22:40 19 Jun 21
If you’re looking for a hedgehog this is the place to go if you’re not looking for a hedgehog you should still check it out as hedgehogs are awesome pets. Sam the owner will tell you anything you need to know he was so helpful when I picked up Magic our new pet!
18:08 19 Jun 21
Lovely place! Sam was so helpful and kind. We're so excited to take care of our hedgehog!!
01:03 18 Jun 21
Today, my boyfriend and I came in to pick up our new hedgehog, Stella (formerly known as Brownie), and we are first time hedgehog owners. Sam helped us, he explained everything that we needed to know, and all of our questions, he was extremely knowledgeable on hedgehogs which was great! Overall it was an awesome shop, had awesome hedgehogs, and an awesome worker! If you want a hedgehog, or their supplies, this is the place to go!!
04:28 13 Jun 21
Very good service and the store is well setup. Sam was super nice and helpful with everything my girlfriend and I needed. They walk you through everything you need to know about your hedgehog and more. If you’re looking for a spiky but super cute and playful pet, then Granite State Hedgehogs is the place to be.
03:42 13 Jun 21
Sam was so helpful. Nice clean place! Best place to get a hedgehog!!
16:09 06 Jun 21
I 100% recommend this place! They by far met my expectations and I am so happy with the service we got from Sam!!! He was so helpful and can't forget the store mascot who made the store warm and welcoming! My baby is settling great!
01:10 06 Jun 21
My 16 yr old bought sugar her very first hedgehog here on 5/22 they took the time to explain everything to her so she would make sure she had everything she needed. And told her to call anytime with any questions
00:47 04 Jun 21
Had such a wonderful experience at Granite State Hedgehogs today! Sam, the owner, was incredibly knowledgeable about Hedgehogs, super attentive and just all around awesome! He went out of his way to make sure that we got all the information we needed and assured us that we could remain in contact should we have any questions after going home with our new hedgie. All the baby Hedgehogs are healthy and hand raised, and I'm super looking forward to years of companionship with my new little friend. Thanks Granite State Hedgehogs!
21:01 29 May 21
I brought my first hedgehog today and I couldn’t be happier. They answered all the questions had and delivery was quick and professional!
01:24 24 May 21
We love our hedgehog from granite state hedgehog. We named her Starlit. Someone is always available to answer questions. After a month of research we felt a hedgehog would be the perfect addition to our family. They were the first place that reached out to us and the next day after deposit we were able to pick her up. Thank you for all the information and I would highly recommend!
13:20 22 May 21
I purchased my baby hedgehog here and I'm thankful I did. I myself am a first time hedgehog owner and I loved the fact they spend about 30-45 min with you to make sure you have all the information, tips & tricks you'll need to ensure a healthy & happy hedgehog.
05:18 06 May 21
First hedgehog purchase and these guys where great! Helped me with all my questions and pick up times. After a week my new little guy is happy and healthy. Sam was great help and gave me a rundown of everything I needed to now and do for my new pet. Highly recommend!
18:25 03 May 21
I recently adopted my a beautiful baby boy from Granite State and he’s become the single most important part of my life since then. I want to thank the staff at Granite State Hedgehogs for connecting me with the most adorable, loving companion I could have hoped for.
19:19 16 Apr 21
I am beyond pleased. Never having owned a hedgehog before, I researched...watched videos...and thoroughly thought this through. I was so nervous. Would my hedgehog like me? Would this be a difficult adjustment for her? Would I regret this? Nope. Not at all! It's my first night with this precious baby and she is just the sweetest. Totally comfortable with me and my husband. Eating her food, drinking her water, very much loves when I hold her next to my chest, wrapped in my favorite bathrobe. She's just a baby but has an amazing personality and a great trust with me. I love this little soul so much. I highly recommend this breeder.
03:05 11 Apr 21
These guys were great. Not ones for answering the phone so if you have made an appointment just go. They're awesome, they care about there pets and want you to know how to care for them too
09:32 10 Apr 21
I absolutely looooooved my experience at Granite State Hedgehogs! It was a 2 hour drive for me but it was well worth it. They are so professional and knowledgeable, nice, and personable. The location is clean and appealing. She was willing to meet me when it was almost ready to close and there was someone after me, so they can be flexible with appointments due to COVID. I picked out Peppermint, and he was such a sweet lil man. Of course he's alittle huffy now that he's in a new environment but he is still amazing and I love him.I came into Granite State Hedgehogs with a whole list of questions and while she was going through all the information about hedgehogs she managed to answer all my questions without me even having to ask. She is always willing to answer questions over chat and responds quickly and is willing to work with you with any issues. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a hedgehogs, and if I ever want another one I know where to go!
17:32 12 Feb 21
If I could give Jay and Ayane’s shop 100 stars, I would! First off, I’ve had hedgehogs in the past (purchased from your average pet shop), sadly both my hedgehogs passed away in under a week because the breeder had no idea what he was doing when he sold them to the pet shop and they were sick when sold to me (I was only 15 years old and devastated). The pet stores’ response was “must have been a bad batch”. That being said, I’ve waited years to commit to another hedgehog. I finally took my chances and found GSH on google. I immediately fell in love with Olaf and purchased right away! (I recommend buying the ultimate cage setup because it comes with EVERYTHING!!) I was so in love with Olaf, that I came back about two months later and purchased another hedgehog, Dakota!! I can’t thank the owners enough! They are so friendly and ALWAYS take the time to answer my questions on the chat/phone and they never rush me! I’ve NEVER experienced the amount of help these owners have given from any other pet expert! This shop is so wholesome and family oriented, I love it! I will be back to purchase more perfect hedgehogs!! Thank you guys so much, I can’t get enough!! I even drove two hours to pick up Dakota up and it was so worth it!! DON’T go anywhere else to get your baby!! Jay and Ayane know exactly what they’re doing!!!
22:04 02 Feb 21
We just got Brillo from Granite State Hedgehogs and could not be happier. He was delivered right to our home in Maine. Jay came in, set up the cage, and willingly and knowledgeably answered all our questions. Brillo is settling in so nicely. He is friendly, cuddly, active, and funny. We could definitely tell he was handled daily and well taken care of. We are totally in love and have already recommended Granite State Hedgehogs to our friends. The experience was wonderful and easy, from beginning to end! Thank you!
18:09 02 Feb 21
The owner met us after hours when we didn't realize there were special Covid policies in place, which was very kind. She was very knowledgeable and walked me through the care sheet that she emailed me, and also said she is available for any questions that come up. Biscuit was clearly well socialized, because he snuggled right in and is very easy to handle. He seems healthy so far.
17:22 02 Feb 21
Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. You could tell they are very good to their animals and that they’re well socialized, as hedgehogs are very timid animals and all of there’s were extremely friendly! My hedgehog is adorable, friendly, cuddly, and seems very healthy. Eating, drinking, playing right off the bat. I would highly recommend them if you’re looking for a hedgehog.
