Pets at Home to stop selling rabbits over Easter at Arnold and Netherfield stores


A pet store chain with branches in Arnold and Netherfield will stop selling rabbits over the Easter period over fears the popular pets could be abandoned.

The legend of the Easter Bunny has traditionally seen a massive spike in demand for rabbits as children’s pets – and as a result a ban on sales will come into force from Good Friday to Easter Monday.

Instead of selling the popular pets, the chain will be holding free workshops at its Arnold and Netherfield stores which teach people about their care commitments when becoming a rabbit owner.

PARTNERSHIP: Peter Rabbit activity sheets will be on offer at workshops being run by Pets at Home

The free workshops are taking place at the stores on Saturday, March 24 between 10.00-10.30am.

Places are limited but can be booked here: http://www.petsathome.com/shop/en/pets/easter-workshops

Peter Pritchard, CEO of Pets at Home, said: “Our decision to stop the sale and adoption of rabbits during Easter has been made to educate potential owners on the importance of responsible pet ownership. Our informative workshops will help families understand what’s involved in being a responsible pet owner. What’s more they’re also a fun and free way to learn about small furry animals and rabbits during the holidays.”
