The ASPCA is battling a New Jersey pet store that leased a puppy to two sisters. The women purchased the dog on a payment plan with the belief that they would eventually own the Golden Retriever. The pet store actually had them in a lease agreement. The agreement involved a large balloon payment at the end of the lease. If they didn’t pay, the dog would have to be returned…just like a leased car. The ASPCA lawsuit on behalf of the women hopes to expose consumer and animal welfare concerns. Did you know companies were doing this? Do you get your fur-babies from pet stores or shelters?
