State representatives trying to ban pet leasing in Pennsylvania
Local representatives are working to stop pet leasing statewide.
Maureen Madden and Jeanne McNeill are both passionate about animals and say pet leasing isn't just bad for animals, but also the families who are tricked into thinking they own a new pet.
The bill, Madden and McNeill are proposing, would protect the animals and potential owners.
They say pet leasing tricks owners into thinking they're buying their pet for a discount, when in reality, they're paying much more than necessary.
