GSG's vision began with our son Chris. His first picture book was Animal Fact File and was a gift from his Uncle Eric. In this book was a picture of a sugar glider. Much to the dismay of his mom, Chris is just like dad and he had to have one! Well, dad thought they were pretty interesting too and being the compulsive person that I am, I purchased our first pair of gliders.
One thing lead to another, and, to make a long story short, we applied for and received our USDA license in 2004. We are the first licensed sugar glider breeders in New Hampshire.
Sugar Glider Breeders With A License!
For those who are unaware of the process, having a sugar glider license means that we are required by law to open our business, unannounced, to a USDA inspector annually. During this inspection, our breeding facility is thoroughly inspected for compliance and cleanliness, record-keeping verified for accuracy, and our gliders are checked to ensure they are being properly cared for. In addition, the USDA requires veterinary health inspections to be performed annually on our breeders. This sounds like a lot to go through every year but consider what it means to you, a perspective granitestateglider owner; You are assured a healthy joey that has been properly cared for and is guaranteed not in-bred. We handle our joeys daily from the day they first open their eyes and when they are finally released to their new homes they are healthy, happy, and fully accustomed to human interaction.
