No Rabbits in PetSmart stores!

No Rabbits in PetSmart stores!

The goal of this petition is aimed at stopping PetSmart stores around the globe from selling rabbits in their stores. Dogs and Cats have been regarded as 'companion' animals and therefore not sold in any of PetSmart stores. Until recently, PetSmart held the same regard for rabbits. They have now decided to sell Rabbits in their stores based on 'demand' for said animals, however no demand is strong enough for them to agree to cats and dogs. Rabbits are now deemed as 'companion' animals around the globe. Many rabbits are kept exactly as a cat or dog would, with free run, litter box etc. Rabbits are the third most relinquished animals in shelters and a countless number are euthanized every day just as others are in shelters. Many people are very uneducated when it comes to caring for a quite delicate and high-maintenance pet, as rabbits undoubtedly are. Please help me with this petition to change their recent decision. Rabbits are meant to be adopted just as cats and dogs, and NOT housed and sold out of cages in pet store windows. Please help to stop Rabbits from being bought and (often frequently) released into the wild or left in shelters when their owners realize just how much work is involved in caring for these beautiful creatures.
