Stop selling Rabbits

    1. Petition by

      Port Huron, MI

Pet supplies plus has been selling baby rabbits for as long as I can remember. The shop will sell the rabbits to just about anybody. Sometimes the rabbits are even too young to be away from their mother. The customers that buy these rabbits are misinformed on how to care for the rabbits properly. They are told that they can live in small "rabbit" cages, fed colorful food, etc. I urge pet supplies plus to end the sales of rabbits at their store and encourage their customers to adopt animals instead of purchasing. Thank you.

      In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist ethic of the era of slavery and colonialism, so we must now progress beyond the speciesist ethic of the era of factory farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of whaling, seal hunting, kangaroo slaughter and the destruction of wilderness. We must take the final step in expanding the circle of ethics. ~Pete Singer

      Rabbits are not objects to be sold to just anyone.
