I feel shitty just asking this, but what consequences could there be for me if I up and leave/stop paying rent due to disagreements with roommates?

This is my nuclear option, but it's looking likely that I'll need to threaten it. We were very clear about what we were looking for when we discussed moving in together, but one roommate has decided he will no longer respect that. The other keeps his dogs in a cage 90% of the day and is so far resistant to the idea of thing them and I'm tired of being party to this borderline abuse.

I'm trying to make some positive change, but if I can't I'm considering leaving. Making up my share of the rent might shake them up enough get them moving. As far as I know, it isn't stipulated that I pay a certain amount, but that we simply come up with the money. If I leave and they want to stay, they'll have to pay. If they don't, the leasing agent would sue and wreck our credit, correct? Could my roommates try to sue me for the rent?
