Pet 'lemon law' may protect consumers


A "lemon law" for puppies in Illinois is now on the governor's desk.


Lawmakers in both houses passed legislation to protect consumers who buy a dog or cat at a pet store and find out the pet is gravely ill.


If signed by Gov. Pat Quinn, buyers would be reimbursed for veterinary fees, get a replacement or a full refund if the animal dies within 21 days of purchase. It also allows them to return the animal within a year if it has a congenital or hereditary condition. Both require a veterinarian's written statement.


Gov. Pat Quinn supports the legislation.
