Over the past couple of days school kids have been coming over to our shop to purchase fish and other small pets to take with them to school for the blessing ceremony at school. You might think of this as cute and fun.. might be for the kids but definitely not for these poor pets! Why?

1) Children who may not really fancy the idea of having a fish or other pets, are forced to do so simply to blend in. This will increase the probability that the pets will not be properly taken care or abandoned.

2) Furthermore if the family is not prepared to adopt a pet, it will probably end up being kept in a small cage or bowls and will not receive the love and attention it deserves;

3) Pets, especially fish, suffer when exposed to such situations which cause extreme stress and can also result in the death of the animal.
