“That’s why a Brigham Young University student launched a business called “Puppies For Rent”.

Jenna Miller told the Daily Herald in Provo, Utah says most of the puppies end up being adopted by previous renters. Rental fees range from $10 – $15 per hour. FOX 8 CLEVELAND.”

 

“Miller’s Puppies for Rent business started up this summer. It was targeted at BYU students who don’t have the opportunity to have pets. She got together with her brother, who is an attorney and entrepreneur, worked out the contracts, the waivers and fees, and got a business license. The next step was purchasing product — 8- to 12-week-old puppies.  ” DAILY HERALD

“Puppies are delivered for dates, birthday parties and surprise gifts and one mom rented a puppy for her daughter as a reward.”For information or to rent a puppy, call or text (801) 251-6022. Rental fees are: $15 for one hour, $25 for two hours and $10 for each additional hour.” DAILY HERALD

  1. This one concerns me on many levels. In theory, the socialisation the puppies are getting is a good thing. However, how do you know how the puppies are being treated during their “rental”. How do you know they are not experiencing things that could negatively affect them for life? This one person may be doing it with love and all the right reasons but it only takes one “not so good” person to catch on to this money making idea and where are we then?

    • Yes, i’ve also heard about that.I’m also not a fan of this.Hopefully this will soon not be a legal business venture.I think that pups need one home filled with love and should not be going from place to place and rented out like cars.Sad that this is actually happening today!

  2. Another article I found says the puppies she gets are returned puppies. That means she is getting the pups from a breeder or seller. So, she is more likely helping pet breeders or sellers who tend to have return pets which is not a good sign. So, she is more likely contributing to the homeless dog problems. Also, the business is FOR PROFIT. She is charging money renting the pups out. She is also charging when someone buys the pup. Why is it okay for her to call it “adoption?” If I sell pups online can I call it adoption?
