A little more about us

      No Comments on A little more about us

Thank you for your interest in Terrapin Hedgehogs.

We breed selectively throughout the year, and have babies relatively often.

Stasi Kanyuck, owner, has been breeding hedgehogs for the last 18 years, and is one of the most respected, and experienced, breeders in the country. In the past, she served on the board of the International Hedgehog Association as the Research and Development Director, and then as the Member Services Director. She was one of the designers of the original International Hedgehog Registry (unfortunately, now both are basically defunct).

In addition, Stasi has worked extensively with Hedgehog World, and is one of the founders of that site. It is a quiet site, but all the information to be found within it is correct, vetted by the most experienced breeders in the USA and abroad.

The whole Kanyuck family is involved in the daily care and socialization of the hedgehogs. Although Stasi has Multiple Sclerosis which she has been battling for 26 years, she answers all email inquiries. If you do not hear from her for a couple of days, feel free to send a follow up message. Please be patient, sometimes her MS gets in her way, but Stasi will reply as soon as she is able.

Beginning in 2014, we have decided that a part of the proceeds of each hedgehog sale will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation www.mymsaa.org.
