Massachusetts Bans Pet Rental Companies

Did you catch last week's entry on the dog rental company, Flex Petz? One of our readers (Thanks, snickdog!) tipped us off to the fact that Flex Petz will not be opening in Boston as planned, because Massachusetts passed a bill in September banning pet rental companies because of "public health, public safety, consumer concerns, and ethical issues."

What do you think? Is paying a price for part-time pet ownership better than nothing, or is it ethically unsound?
