I wanted to share the below message from petco. Woo-hoo, they're going to suspend sales of rabbits, they did a complete 180!  Maybe all the messages people sent made a difference!!

"Dear  ____

Recently, a management decision was made to begin offering spayed or neutered rabbits in selected California stores.

Unfortunately, we did not follow our established protocol prior to this action. That protocol includes a diligent attempt to seek viable adoption partners first. Only if an adoption partner is not available would we consider offering spayed or neutered rabbits. Our commitment has been and continues to be focused on adoption as the first choice for those PETCO customers wishing to add a companion rabbit to their family.

Effective immediately we are going to suspend offering rabbits in these selected stores where they were recently added to allow additional time to find a local rabbit adoption group for these stores.

Any rabbit adoption group wishing to hold adoption events at a local PETCO store should contact our National Adoption Coordinator for the PETCO Foundation at 858-453-7845.

For the rabbits we have purchased for other areas, PETCO has established criteria that companion animal suppliers must meet to become one of our vendors. Marshall Pet Products has met these criteria and has also met rigorous USDA requirements and standards. We have been pleased with the health and quality of the altered rabbits Marshall Farms has consistently provided us.

Management at Marshall Pet Products has asked that you contact their customer service department directly at 5740 Limekin Rd., Wolcott, NY 14590 with any questions you may have. You may also call them at (315) 594-1760 if you wish to discuss any concerns you may have in person with a service associate. We encourage you to contact Marshall Farms for more specific insight into their animal care practices and policies

PETCO remains committed to Think Adoption First and apologizes to our adoption partners for this unfortunate miscommunication.

Sincerely,


Julie M.
Customer Relations Coordinator "

This is great news!  I can shop at PetCo again.  Did you get this in response to a letter that you wrote or did you find it someplace online?
