A Pets R Us store may be getting into hot water after leasing out pure bred dogs to unsuspecting customers. Each prospective owner thought they were merely entering into a monthly pay plan on a reasonable price for a pure bred dog. In reality, the pet store was hooking them into paying for a dog at several times the stated price; and charging a fee on top of that to actually own the dog. It has gotten to the point where attorneys and lawyers were called into the fray.
- A business that offers financing for pets with as little as zero down and advertises this on social media is Pet R Us.
- According to the Pets R Us website, they offer financing for pure breeds including English Bulldogs and Yorkshire Terriers for ranges between $3,000 and $15,000.
- Ortega who saw the Pets R Us advertisement and wanted a bulldog, Marshall, was disappointed when after a week of inquiry he was told the price was $5,500.
