House Rabbit Society does not recommend rabbits as classroom pets.

Today House Rabbit Society mailed letters to Pets in the Classroom asking them to discontinue grants to teachers to buy rabbits as classroom pets, and asks Oxbow and PetSmart to stop making donations to Pets in the Classroom. The letters are displayed below.

House Rabbit Society hopes to have a dialogue with all three organizations about ending their financial support of the purchase of rabbits as classroom pets.
