Hello! This morning I heard an ad on the radio about a new business that rents pets for a day or for a year. As far as the renting out a dog or cat for a year goes - I think it should be against the law because it’s mental crudity to an animal. People will probably start looking at pets like they are cars and start trading them in every time the pet gets a little old and raggedy looking. Also what will happen to all the old pets that nobody wants to rent - half price sale maybe. I have mixed feelings about renting a pet for a day. There have been times in my life that I wasn’t in a position to keep a dog and would of loved to have a dog even if it was only for a day. But I don’t think I could of just rented a dog for a day and then not want to keep it. What I would do was go visit people who had dogs until I could get my own. And maybe that would be a better thing for people to do – go out to and meet some pets in the community until they can get one they can enjoy for a long time. On the other hand - in my community there is a free service for people who can’t get out of the house and this service will go to these people with their dog or cat and sit and chat for awhile and I think there cool. Cheers!
