Sadly, Petland, a national pet store with 140 stores across the US, just opened in Albuquerque. While Petland, which is the ONLY national pet store chain that still sells dogs and cats--even though 4-6 million dogs and cats are euthanized every year in this country--cannot legally sell dogs and cats in Albuquerque, they still sell rabbits, birds, and small animals. Petland gets its puppies, kittens and bunnies from large commercial breeders called puppy (or kitten and bunny) mills. The breeders that supply Petland keep their animals in tiny, often filthy cages without any socialization for the sole purpose of supplying pet stores with animals. Animals are treated like a cash crop at these breeders, and once they are sold to Petland, they will be re-sold to any customer with the cash to buy them. Petland offers no care information with their animals, the animals are not spayed or neutered, and there's no attempt to determine if the buyer will provide an adequate home for the animals.At this writing, our local Petland has over 25 baby bunnies for sale. Ever wonder where that constant supply of babies comes from and what happens to them when they get a little older? See the articles below for details of the cruel rabbit mill industry. Many people who buy rabbits from pet stores don't know that rabbits are sensitive animals that require special care if they are to thrive and be happy. Many homeless rabbits are available for adoption, and nonprofit groups offer excellent advice on how to care for bunnies. (See links below.) Petland, in contrast, sells a small cage called a Rabbitat to go along with the bunnies. Clever title, but confining rabbits to a space that small subjects them to lifelong misery. Rabbits have strong jumping legs! How can they do their happy bunny dance if they have no room to move? They need, at a minimum, the space provided by a metal exercise pen, simple to set up and readily available at pet stores. Preferably they should be allowed to run, play, and chew lots of hay in entire rabbit-proofed rooms.At the Petland in Albuquerque, there are about a dozen rabbits, all young and unneutered, and the owner is planning on selling lots of rabbits for the Christmas holidays. Many of these rabbits will be surrendered to the city shelters after the holidays are over, and some will be bred to create yet more unwanted rabbits. Why would our community accept a business that profits from animal suffering, and that contributes to the overpopulation problem at our city shelter?Elizabeth Kunzelman, a spokeswoman for Petland, a major national pet retailer that sells rabbits, says the spring months are “a perfect time for a child to begin caring for a new pet and learning responsibility.” But DeMello believes this mindset is problematic. “Children, honestly, want something cuddlier and more obviously attentive and are often frustrated when rabbits don’t respond to them the way they expect.” Other pet stores, including Petco and Petsmart, stopped selling rabbits several years ago because of concerns about abandonment. Kunzelman says Petland has a take-back policy for rabbits and other animals.
