Sometimes you can't afford the dog you want to get. But some puppy mills and kennels will offer a lease-to-own payment plan so you can take the furry friend home for a monthly payment.

   What some people don't know is that there are suoer-high interest rates written into the contract pet owners don't know about, and they often end up paying way more than the pet was originally valued at.

   State Representatives Maureen Madden and Jeanne McNeill have worked together, co-sponsoring a bill to make these back-loaded and predatory payment plans illegal in Pennsylvania.
