It looks like the company isn't up and running at the moment??
I found this on the site..
AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM FLEXPETZ
In July 2008, the company put operations on temporary hold. Since launching in early 2007, the concept, while often misunderstood (or deliberately maligned as part of the agenda of others), has been a great success.
FLEXPETZ is seen by many sensible and intelligent animal lovers as a revolution in dog adoption, and has been well supported. It has helped dogs and families, and has been a financial success. However, early in 2008, politicians from Boston decided to mount a campaign specifically targeting FLEXPETZ. Their agenda was to bring in a law "banning pet rental". The proposition was introduced by these elected politicians who NEVER spoke to the company, or visited our facilities, or met our dogs or spoke with our members. If they had, they would have quickly realized that FLEXPETZ is not a "Blockbuster for dogs", but a new way of approaching responsible dog adoption and ownership.
Although this law in Boston was passed, the legislature's failure to contact FLEXPETZ ensured that the law that was brought in is ineffective and a waste of taxpayer's money - and is likely to lead to the death in shelters of hundreds of dogs that could have been placed in homes by FLEXPETZ. However, the actions of these politicians (supported by the likes of the MSPCA who perhaps fear that this new adoption model might affect their own bottom line) did come at a time when our company was ready for expansion and the pending proposed legislation did halt further investment from our main funder.
FLEXPETZ gives our members an opportunity to carefully evaluate dog ownership while at the same time, funding a great quality of life for our dogs. And the system works: FLEXPETZ dogs generally stay with FLEXPETZ for an average of 90 days before being adopted on a permanent basis by a member family. The FLEXPETZ experience gives our members a real understanding of the responsibilities of owning a dog - and ensures that the dog finally gets their "forever" home.
So where does this put FLEXPETZ? The concept, the proprietary systems and operation model are tried and tested. When operating, FLEXPETZ has been profitable and has opened locations both in the USA and internationally. Independent auditors valued the company at $98 million at the beginning of 2008 - in all, not bad for a year old company!.
FLEXPETZ continues to receive dozens of inquires every day from willing future members who want FLEXPETZ in their vicinity. But in order to proceed with the planned expansion to 100+ locations, we have two options: either obtain new capital OR license the FLEXPETZ model to a an interested party. Either option will allow FLEXPETZ to resume operations and grow into a business that will achieve its projected multi-million dollar earnings - and unite thousands of dogs with new owners.
