Customers will not be able to buy or adopt a rabbit from 9am on Good Friday, April 14, until close of business on Monday, April 17.

Each year, customer interest in rabbits increases at Easter due to the holiday’s connection with the Easter Bunny. To ensure families understand the specific needs of rabbits, Pets at Home is hosting free rabbit workshops in all stores throughout the Easter weekend.

Peter Pritchard, CEO (Retail) at Pets at Home, said: “We pride ourselves on putting pets before profit so we’ve taken the decision not to sell rabbits during the upcoming Easter weekend.

“Nor will customers be able to adopt rabbits in need of rehoming from our in store adoption centres.”
