    Hi,

    I am a member of a few other forums where I know members may feel strongly about this.

    Do you mind if I cross post the letter?

    cheers :wink:

    I'm going to write a letter this weekend to the pet shop I buy supplies from. They're generally quite good, but every time I go in there and hear one of the staff telling someone who is buying rats that they can't keep boys together I want to scream at them! I have actually talked to one of the staff and corrected him - he's a nice guy and listened but STILL told people that they couldn't be kept together. GRRARRRGH!

    I think I'm in a ranting mood this week!

Theres nothing to stop a complete idiot going into a shop buying a rabbit and keeping it in a shoebox or feeding it to a dog. This country has a huge problem with unwanted pets and the only way to get it under control is to stop breeding and stop selling. Theres a big enough supply of animals in rescues without adding to the numbers!

    Oh and I buy my rabbit food from my vet and my other stuff from a small, local, non livestock selling pet shop. :wink:
    This country also has a huge problem with child abuse. People can have kids without ONE question being asked! Should all humans be given some kind of hormone drug until they complete a few years of training before being allowed to have children?

    You can but if you just want one persons opinion pm is better, most people can't resist adding theirs

    I think it's fairly split, some people are firmly against pet shop sales and would support a ban, others think that stricter regulations should be implemented.

    but say they banned the sales of livestock tommorrow and the only place to get animals was the rescue centres what would people do when the rescue centres ran out? would the word "pet" not exist in say 10 years

    Hence there is a debate

    Try a search: http://forums.rabbitrehome.org.uk/se...searchid=36536 for 'selling petshop' you'll get that point and the responses.

    Great form letter, Tamsin!

    To gareth: Could you please not post that same question over and over? It gets a little annoying to have the subject derailed. I already answered you in another thread.
