A majority of the staff at Flexcin International owns pets and is concerned for the welfare of all animals. So it is important to us to help organizations who share that concern and work to make a direct impact on the lives of animals. We do this in a variety of ways, through giving discounts or even free product to shelters, through financial donations and through membership drives and special events. Flexcin, the makers of FlexPet, and Animal Ark have been working together for a year and a half and senior pets at the shelter receive FlexPet for their joint pain. Animal Ark also takes advantage of our special shelter pricing and resells FlexPet at their shelter in order to increase shelter income. We also work with Best Friends Society. Most of the animals who find their way to Best Friends have special physical or behavioral needs, and our expert staff of veterinarians, trainers and caregivers offer them all the help they require. Most of them are ready to go to good new homes after just a few weeks of special care. A few, who are too old or too sick, or who have suffered extra trauma, find a home and haven at the sanctuary, and are given loving care for the rest of their lives. Best Friends uses FlexPet for their senior pets who suffer from severe joint pain. We’ve also worked with them to promote and increase their membership program.
