BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

Hermit Crabs and Reptiles Need Your Voice!

PETA has asked the executive of Sunsations Inc.—a retailer that specializes in swimwear, apparel, and other tourist items—to adopt a policy that prohibits the sale and display of hermit crabs, chameleons, bearded dragons, and snakes in all 35 of its stores. Sadly, our concerns appear to have been casually dismissed. With so many cruelty-free products to offer tourists, Sunsations could make a profit without causing suffering.

Every year, countless people give in to temptation and purchase wild or exotic animals on a whim as “pets,” but very few have the knowledge required to meet the animals’ specialized needs or the ability to commit to years of care. Stolen from the wild, sold as cheap trinkets, confined to small “habitats,” roughly handled, fed improper diets, and forgotten when the novelty wears off, these animals are doomed from the moment that they are born. They need YOUR help.

TAKE ACTION NOW

Please ask the executive of Sunsations to do the right thing and stop selling live animals at the company’s stores!

Live in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, or Florida? Please also call your local Sunsations store and ask its management to stop selling live animals!

Knowledge is power!

    Sunsations won’t be selling me anything ever until they stop this cruel practice. Leave the little guys alone and free where they deserve to be naturally.

    The salesmen are the same ignorant as their customers. Wrong people sell and wrong people buy. When people realize that animals are not toys? I am thankful to Peta for bringing it up, edua=cating and warning public about those practises and trying to stop it.

    Sad & unnatural. Humans are animals too and as such they need to learn to respect other animals.

    It makes mad when people go all crazy and upset about dolphin killings but won’t even blink at the sale and torture of less “cute” creatures.
