You may also want to remind them that Philip Francis, Chairman and CEO of PetSmart, said in a July 1, 2000, interview with Allbusiness.com that "We try to stay on the side of angels with all animals. We do not sell certain animals for specific reasons." The article then goes on to note that "Rabbits are also taboo. Six weeks before the Easter holiday bunnies become popular pet purchases, but 10 days later the majority of them wind up in shelters. For this reason, PETsMART will not sell rabbits, but it will carry rabbit food and supplies."
House Rabbit Society is a non-profit rescue and education group.
