NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s not uncommon to lease or rent things like cars, homes, or even furniture.
But what if we told you pets are now being added to the list?
A growing number of breeders and pet stores are doing it, but as CBS2’s Kristine Johnson explained, not everyone thinks it’s a good idea.
“Our previous dog was hit by a car on Valentine’s Day,” Angela Kyme said.
With heartbroken kids at home Kyme said she thought Harley could help ease their pain. Then she realized she couldn’t afford the lab’s $2,000 price tag.
The breeder, Kyme said, suggested she opt for a special loan, which she understood to work like a credit card.
“They bring in this paperwork for me to sign on a tablet that I couldn’t read, and I was told it’s all your basic contract,” she said.
