EWE need to come find ME, humie…theres no hedgehogs HERE yet…
While we do not personally breed hoggies, more due to space and urgency. We would be happy to contract out services. IE: Provide branding, logo, online presence..list hoggies for sale...etc. Especially for those already on the HWS "partnership list"
Some breeders are turning into greedy asshats or indian givers.
its looking like some may be harming those that you would take home or playing "forced substitution". The FTC calls this "bait and switch". Its illegal. DONT DO IT to others.
Most breeders cant even format a website correctly most of the time.
They rely on Facebook and FB “doesnt allow the sale of pets”.
While not knowing HTML isnt the problem-something discovered recently, WAS.
DO NOT use this websites Trademark (or logos) without permission.
(Its been seen in the WILD. WE WERE HERE FIRST.)
WE DO NOT HAVE A LOUISIANA “HEDGEHOG BREEDER” PARTNER.
USING OUR NAME WITHOUT EXPRESS WRITTEN PERMISSION is grounds for a lawsuit.
We dont play when it comes to things like this.
US IP laws indicate Trademark “is effective” after 5 years without filing, or six months post filing an official trademark.
This website HAS BEEN ONLINE THIS LONG.
Major Site Interruptions were due to (ICANN and) ISP non-compliance with “ICANN lockout regulations”
The hand-drawn logo is FREEWARE.
The Japanese author states “NO COMMERCIAL USE”.
All rights of it are reserved to her.
This is offered as symbolic representation ONLY.
Thats why we are here- to help you connect the dots.
While we directly influence smaller lesser known care-ers and recues, other larger orgs like WWF and similar can also help.
Here are two links in this case:
Overseas rescues need to provide direct payment info to be included here.
At this point this requires WU or eCurrency (such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.) details.
No, this info isnt going to be given out- its used for internal records only when the donations arrive.
This site/organization cannot (and WILL NOT) help YOU overseas in the UK, if we dont have your payment info.
This is an effort to globalize efforts to help the hedge. Not everyone lives in the UK.
Credit Cards /online processing:
Shopify and Stripe can accept donations (in USD) to US from “our clients cards”
(its not setup right now -but we have an account)
VISA/AMEX/MASTERCARD CANNOT and often WILL NOT help “in international regards”.
Very few ATMs overseas are “international use” and most cards have forced “vacation policies” restricting
“international transactions” online.
(We have a problem buying from ebay from time to time because of this.)
Payment will be made to YOU , (the UK care-er) in the following manners:
Paypal has “scamming issues” with “international funds” for some reason.
Why YOU put up with asking for credit cards from overseas clients- is beyond us- with this scam going on.
We need to know where and how to send a "Western Union wire" to you. (This will be checked -as best possible- for accuracy- before anything is sent)
WESTERN UNION HAS HIGH FEES, BITCOIN (and alts) DO NOT
Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES are we becoming a man-in-the-middle WU agent.
(There are enough scams going on)
The donation becomes property of SOUTHERN HEDGEHOGS, THEN as WE direct it- goes overseas to UK care giver.
(We ALREADY HAVE THE FUNDS BEFORE THE WU IS INITIATED.)
Although we have very little overhead, nobody will be making WU demands of US.
If caught, this will be reported to FBI and Homeland Security.
(FBI has international reach)
There will most likely be a few days delay minimum before WU is re-sent overseas to prevent fraud.
We will only be acting on “what is recieved”, not “pledges”, so DO NOT ASK.
Local (to US) breeders and care givers have PRIORITY- as this organization is based in the US.
We only need GDAX (or coinbase) username, or COIN wallet ID (public key). Skrill, CoinBase, COIN WALLET(directly), etc. cash out in your local currency- not USD.
Coinbase, GDAX, Skrill are sent directly to your account.
COIN WALLET(ID) payments are handled ON THE NETWORK, directly from us.It is completely P2P in nature.
Once sent- we have nothing to do with it. Its very much like WESTERN UNION.
You wait for network confirmation, and send to an exchange or system(like coinbase) of choice and you get FIAT.(CASH)
The issues with “outsiders altering a websites COIN DEPOSIT addresses” are not possibe-
1- THERE IS NO DATABSE. (Jekyll outputs FLAT HTML- this site is rendered locally, then uploaded) 2- WE DONT POST THAT INFO DIRECTLY ANYMORE.
This “HACK” would require either completely hacking personal computers(obvious) or completely hacking our ISP
just to rewrite one line of HTML- which can get over-ridden at any time BY US.
(Its not worth the effort)
Not accepting Bitcoin, (or cryptocurrencies in general) is a YUGE financial mistake.
You are limiting business transactions at your country's borders.
With exception of WU- other "financial companies" will not solve this headache for you.
-This site (and organization) is/are born and raised in Phoenix,AZ.
All Legal questions fall under US and AZ laws and are dealth with accordingly.
(I dont see why you couldnt write this off on your taxes- once we acquire 501c3 status.
However, I would not recommend doing so until “notice is posted”.
YOU WILL SEE IT PROUDLY POSTED.)
There are awesome products, a lot come from China (1 week airmail is the solution, with added cost)
The “SLOW BOAT from CHINA” is a “real thing”. It often takes 30 days or more for mail to arrive.
We are searching for another commercial merchant due to dropshipping issues discovered. While we dont like fraud either, neither you- nor us- should be "taken for a ride".
Please stand by.
-Thank you for looking.
