Customers will not be able to buy or adopt a rabbit from Good Friday to Easter Monday and are instead invited to take part in FREE workshops over the Easter holidays and weekend. Pets at Home is taking these steps in order to educate and inform future pet owners on the importance of responsible pet ownership. We are also announcing a promotional partnership for the workshops with Sony Pictures on the new movie Peter Rabbit™, which launches in UK theatres on 16 March. The workshops aim to promote awareness of rabbit welfare and help prospective rabbit owners make an informed decision about the long term commitment that comes with owning a pet. The My Pet Pals Easter activity club will be held from 24th March to 15th April at Pets at Home stores throughout the holidays, where fun, interactive activities will educate the next generation of pet owners on how to care for small furry animals, responsibly.
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.”
