DOG OWNERS OF THE GOLDEN STATE ALERT - AB 1491 makes leasing ILLEGAL

The California Legislature is entertaining a bill that would render contracts for leasing dogs null and void. Here is the legislative analysis:

This bill would declare a contract entered into on or after January 1, 2018, to transfer ownership of a dog or cat in which ownership is contingent upon the making of payments over a period of time subsequent to the transfer of possession of the dog or cat void as against public policy unless those payments are on an unsecured loan for the purchase of that animal. This bill would also declare a contract entered into on or after January 1, 2018, for the lease of a dog or cat void as against public policy. The bill would require that the consumer taking possession of a dog or cat transferred under the terms of one of these contracts be deemed the owner of the dog or cat and be entitled to return all amounts paid under the contract.

This bill would render leasing contracts for any reason as null and void. It would eliminate your choice to lease a dog for breeding purposes. Anyone who might choose to lease a pets.....can't imagine that people actually do this, but if so, that is their inherent RIGHT to make that CHOICE and DECISION independently....we don't need the government to insert itself into our private transactions. Dogs are property, and as such can be bought, sold and yes, leased.

Assembly Judiciary Committee Contact

Create an account and log in here to submit your letter to the Judiciary Committee members. Preserve your right to enter into a private party leasing contract. Ask them to reject AB 1491 (author Caballero), an unnecessary measure. The bill will be heard TOMORROW April 4, 2017.

Kind regards,
Dog Owners of the Golden State
