PETCO announced today that it is phasing out its rabbit sales. Instead, the chain of pet stores is expanding its rabbit adoption efforts across the US. According to PETCO CEO Jim Myers, “Rabbits are great companion animals, and we believe PETCO can play a pivotal role in partnering with animal-welfare groups to connect responsible pet parents with happy, healthy neutered rabbits through in-store adoptions nationwide.”
The shift in policy is welcoming news to the thousands of rabbit rescues overrun with abandoned bunnies in need of forever homes.
