    nj hedgehog permit?

    hey all! (yay first post)

    i live in bridgewater, nj and i recently discovered that i will actually need a permit in order to own a hedgie here. the permit is cheap, 10$, so i\'m not worried about that, just that i don\'t know where to get a permit. My breeder is actually all the way in north carolina (long story) so i dont think she would be able to give me a permit form. Anyone know where i can find one?

    actually let me modify that. i have the permit application, but is there any way i can get a 20-day permit if the breeded does not provide one?

    Re:nj hedgehog permit?

    It is my understanding that if the breeder is not located in NJ they don\'t have to issue the 20 day temporary permit, but I could be wrong.

    Here is phone number and links so you or your breeder could find out for sure:

    TO REQUEST TEMPORARY 20-DAY PERMIT BOOKLETS & INDIVIDUAL HOBBY APPLICATION PACKETS:
    Call (609) 292-9591 or e-mail EXOTICPERMITS@dep.state.nj.us

    Here is the link for the permanent permit:

    so here\'s the response i got-

    in this case, i jsut need a receipt or some ort of proof of purchase from the breeder, and that would count as my 20-day permit. Basically, they just need to make sure the hedgie was obtained legally. B)
