Animal Care & Control confiscated 23 young bunnies from a San Francisco pet store which was apparently unaware that city law prohibits the sale of rabbits in The City. The rabbits are currently being cared for and evaluated at the city animal shelter, according to Animal Control.
While it’s only the sale of rabbits that’s illegal in San Francisco, The City’s Animal Welfare Commission is considering a ban on the sale of all small animals including possibly birds. San Francisco would be the first city in the country to enact such a law.
Meanwhile, if you are interested in adopting one of these rabbits, they are available starting Saturday at noon. Rabbits at Animal Care & Control are spayed and neutered, and adopters receive a free veterinary exam for their new pet.
Anyone interested in seeing photos of the bunnies can visit the Animal Care & Control website at www.animalshelter.sfgov.org.
