Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Pennsylvania

When I signed my lease, pets were allowed. Now that my pet has passed, the landlord changed their minds and will not allow another pet. I have the lease stating pets allowed and they have a depost of $300. I have tried to reason with them, but to no avail. What can I do?
