Sabine Disharoon started this petition to Petco and Petsmart

In many pet stores like Petco and PetSmarts they sell cages for animals like guinea pigs, Rabbits, hamsters etc. But these cages are very, very small. Of course it seems that a pet as big as a hamster would not need that much space, but most rodents and small animals need very large cages. For instance a guinea pig is very small but needs at least 7.5 square feet. And that is the bare minimum. And the ones that they sell range around 2.3-3.5 square feet! They also do this for other small rodents, including hamsters, rabbits, ferrets, etc. Guinea pigs can actually get long term illnesses and be very unhealthy in cages to small. And it’s not only that they sell these cages, but when you ask for the recommended cage size they will recommend the cages they are selling. These pets are small so it would surprise most people that they need so much space, but yes they need very large amounts of space. You should keep in mind that they once were wild or still are, and than they had unlimited space to run around and enjoy. And being locked up in a cage isn’t ideal. I want to make it so they can’t sell these cages or at least recommend the actual cage size needed. Not the very cramped small cages they are seeking. Making this happen could make so many adorable animals life’s better. With them being happy and healthy! You could help a animal live it’s best fullest life! Thank you!
