Hannah Smithson started this petition to Pets at Home (UK)

Very few, if any, of the cages for small animals at pets at home meet the MINIMUM requirements for the pets to live a happy, safe life. Requirements for minimum cage and run sizes are set out by the PDSA, RWAF and RSPCA rehoming centres. 

Pets at home is the largest UK pet store chain which gives them the power to make a real difference to the welfare of small pets in the UK by only selling large appropriately sized cages, where pets can live and move happily!

So I’m asking Pets at Home to stop selling tiny cages and only sell cages which meeting the minimum welfare guidelines set out by the organisations suggested above.

I would also like to see other cages (such as hamster and rat cages) easily extendable to give these small pets the best quality of life.
