Stop Maine Legislation That Will Make it Harder to Rent With Pets

This petition made change with 941 supporters!


Americans love their pets. Unfortunately, it's often difficult to find landlords that allow tenants to have dogs or cats.

ME HP 62/ LD 74 is pending in the Maine legislature. This bill would shift the burden of liability for a pet from the tenant to the landlord AND the tenant. The bill provides: "A tenant and that tenant's landlord are jointly and severally liable for damages caused to a 3rd party by that tenant's pet."  In essence, this ill-concieved measure would discourage any landlord from renting to people with pets because their own liability would be too high.

People who can't afford their own home shouldn't be discouraged from caring for a dog or cat. If ME HP 62/LD 74 passes, many pets will be abandoned in shelters. Please sign the petition to stop this inhumane measure.
