  • Hair: Unknown
We are currently accepting adoption applications for Olive. You can request an application by emailing littlelivesrescue@yahoo.com.

Olive is a female hedgehog who is about 1 year old, born in approximately October 2015. Olive is a typical hedgehog and will allow you to hold her, but she is wiggly and prefers the comfort of her habitat. She definitely does need human interaction though. When Olive was rescued, she was covered in mites and was under weight. She has since been treated and has improved greatly in health. Olive was only fed cat food before she was rescued. We are trying to adjust Olive to hedgehog food, although it has been a struggle since she grew up on cat food. Hedgehogs are insectivores, so Olive’s favorite treat are mealworms. Since hedgehogs are insectivores, they do have a distinct smell. Olive needs a wheel for exercise and a house to hide in. We will provide proof of veterinarian examination, any/all other vet records under our care, and an information/care guide. Hedgehogs need to be between 75 – 85 degrees F and cannot be in direct sunlight. It is extremely important that their living space does not get below 75 degrees. Olive will need a very large cage to give her space to be active. A critter nation is recommended. She can also be given outdoor supervised playpen time in the shade during the summertime.

Average Lifespan: 4 - 6 years.
Activity Time: Nocturnal meaning they are most likely to be active during the night.
Grooming: Bathing once every 1-2 months with Aveeno Oatmeal Powder. Nail trimming when necessary.
Adoption Fee: $90

About Little Lives Matter Small Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Lives Matter Small Animal Rescue is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization located in Tri-Cities, Washington. Our primary focus is on small animals such as rodents, reptiles, birds, etc.

We want to help our community as much as we can by rescuing small animals, reducing overpopulation, and educating the community on small animal care.

CONTACT US: If you are interested in adopting, surrendering, or fostering please email littlelivesrescue@yahoo.com. If you just adopted or purchased a small animal from another facility and you would like a care guide, please email us and specify what animal type you would like a care guide for.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We attend PetSmart adoption events at the PetSmart on Canal in Kennewick, Washington. We do not do on-site adoptions, but this is an opportunity to see our adoptable pets in order for you to decide if you would like to apply.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Request an adoption application by emailing littlelivesrescue@yahoo.com (multiple page form requiring references, including a vet reference).
2. Home check. We are not a "first-come, first-served" rescue. We choose the best fitting home for that particular animal.
3. If the animal can safely be spayed/neutered, that will be done prior to adoption. Many small animals cannot be safely altered.
4. A signed adoption contract and adoption fee will be required at the time of adoption. Adoption fees vary depending on animal type.
5. A care guide, supply list, and veterinary contact information will be provided to the adopter at or before the time of adoption.
