A new company in Kansas City is renting out drug-sniffing dogs to concerned parents. But did you know that's not the only animal you can rent? Read on to find out about four types of animals you can rent.


1. Drug-Sniffing Dogs

Let’s start with drug-sniffing dogs to check out your personal spaces. We spoke with Ray McCarty, trainer at Metro K9 Services, who has trained dogs to respond to the words, "are you gonna get your gift?” “The times that we find things, it's basically just confirming the parent's suspicions, and it's nice when we don't find things,” shares Ray. You can rent a dog to check your home or business for around $200. Ray’s even training dogs to search for firearms!


2. Blue Collar Cats

Next up are blue collar cats. There are programs all over the U.S. like Working Cats at the Animal Foundation in Nevada. These kitties aren't the cuddly type – but they will get rid of your rodents in exchange for food and rent. If the placement works out, the ultimate goal of most programs is permanent placement for these feral felines. Adopting these cats can be totally free!


3. Lease Livestock

At number three is leasing livestock. The company Rent Mother Nature lets you lease a cow or a goat. You don't actually get the animal, but you do get all the cheese they produce, and picture updates of the animal you choose. Cows cost $59.95, and goats will run you $49.95.


4. Check Out a Chicken

And finally, check out a chicken. Yep, companies like Rent-the-Chicken and Rent a Coop let will deliver everything to you, so you can have fresh eggs for up to 12 weeks!


As you can see, animals are more than just pets – they can also make the perfect hire!
