Ground Squirrels

Deposit Process

  • By placing your deposit you are reserving a specific species and color of animal but gender is not guaranteed.

  • After your deposit is placed we will update you with monthly email reminders about how you should be preparing for your squirrel.

  • Richardson ground squirrels are usually ready to go home in May and 13 lined ground squirrels in July. Once they become available we will call and email deposit holders in the order that their deposit was placed.

  • The final balance is due when your squirrel is picked up or before shipping can be arranged. Deposit is $50 and goes towards the total purchase price $150. $100 will be due at pickup.

  • Once you are contacted about your ground squirrel being ready, you have 10 days to pick up or make reasonable arrangements for pickup or shipping (shipping is available for an additional $150). If you do not communicate with us or cannot make arrangements within 10 days your deposit will be forfeit.

 Before placing a deposit please be sure to read over our ground squirrel care page.
