About us

At Boston Hedgehogs, we raise exceptional animals in a loving and caring environment. Dedicated to following a responsible breeding program, our focus is on keeping our animals healthy and happy for when they find their new homes. We are passionate about our animals. We love helping people find the perfect new addition for their families and enjoy a reputation as a kind and caring Hedgehog Breeder. We are USDA licensed and all of our hedgehogs are pedigreed. 

Boston Hedgehogs is owned by a husband and wife team, Rachel and Bill Hoffman. Originally from the Garden State (and still owners of New Jersey Hedgehogs too!) they have found themselves happily settled in New England. 

In addition to their herd of hedgehogs, they have two dogs, Henry and Kash, and two cats, Puccio and Azula. Ask them what their favorite part about breeding hedgehogs, and they would both answer that it's seeing a happy and excited customers go home with a new pet and family member. 

"I got my little guy Jedi a week ago and he’s so happy and comfortable in his new home. If you are looking to take home a hedgehog this is the place to go. They take such amazing care of all their hedgie’s. Rachel was so wonderful and kind and made sure we had everything we needed for take home day! I am so happy to have this little guy in my life. Boston hedgehog is #1 in my book for cutest hedgehogs!"

Barbara Lynn Raphael, Jedi's owner


I felt very comfortable adopting from Boston Hedgehogs. It’s clear they love their hedgies and take excellent care of their herd. Rachel is very knowledgeable, helpful, warm and made the entire process a pleasant and smooth process. Navigating the website, communication, ease of ordering all needed supplies and Rachel’s availability to answer questions equipped us with everything we needed to prepare Watson’s new home. We also love that they are still available to answer any ongoing questions and to offer support whenever needed. The priority is in providing the hedgies with a good home and care. Watson is such a joy with a curious, warm and boisterous personality!"

Meredith Chamberlain, Watson's owner
