Our new baby!

At the Canadian Hedgehog Association, we have started a great new program called "Animaleries en coeur" which means Pet stores with a heart. This new project invites pet stores to participate by promising to give adequate care to the hedgehogs they have in the store. They promise to feed them the best of food, give them a cover to hide and most of all, to get them out of their cages to help socialization.

On top of that, the participating pet stores provide information to the new adoptive parents and sell the right accessories to make sure the hedgehogs have a good comfortable and healthy life. 

We have started this project by sending letters to the Montreal's area pet stores in Quebec. After 5 days, we have already received a positive reply! It is a great start.

After Christmas, we will continue our work by trying to reach the rest of Quebec and the Maritimes.

 ** The idea behind this program came from Lucie St-Gelais, a CHA breeding member. Sophie Pruneau & Nathalie Rondeau worked hard to finalize the program. **


IF YOU ARE WORKING IN A PET STORE and would like to be part of this new program, it will be our pleasure to send you all the documentation. You can reach us by email at : info@canadianhedgehogassociation.com .
