I just got this from Auntie Heather, who has been monitoring the PetSmart rabbit sale issue:
PetSmart is discontinuing rabbit sales at their stores and will no longer be selling rabbits in any of their stores once the remaining rabbits are gone.
We have learned that it was because of the strong vocal opposition of animal lovers across the United States that they have reconsidered their choice and decided to stop.
I encourage you to take a minute and write to PetSmart to thank them for their decision, and let them know that it was the right choice.
Please address your thanks to PetSmart care of:

thats great news! i wish petcetera here in canada would follow suit. their website says:
"Due to the lack of knowledge and misunderstanding of keeping exotic animals as pets, Petcetera does not support the sale of these animals." says Dan Urbani, Founder, President & CEO of Petcetera.
they also work with the humane society for cat & dog adoptions. yet the one by my place sells rabbits and other small critters. i don't get it.
That is fabulous news!
For the folks who live in the bay area.... Theres a pet shop in San Jose called Andy's Pet Shop
and I heard from a friend who owns a restaurant nearby that area that they are going to be under
new management (again) but this time the new owners WILL NOT be selling purebreed pups
anymore. Those poor pups stayed in tiny kennels! My friend informed me that the animals which
will be at the store will be animals that are available for adoption! (I hope that goes for small animals too!
I am excited to see the transformation!
were they selling the altered animals or was that petco? if they were, could've been the price... i think they were selling them for like 100 dollars or something. most people don't want to make an impulsive 100 dollar purchase for an animal they know nothing about. and once they find out more info, they realize the 100 bucks is a tiny amount in comparison to what they will need to spend over the next decade or so.
