Cat Tales ~ Pet Food Stamps

Mommy was reading the Sunday paper yesterday when she found an article that she HAD to read to me! It was about a program that has been started to help out-of-work or low income people feed the four-footed members of their family. 

Pet Food Stamps is a New York based non-profit that helps pet owners with food for their pets. And We all know how important Us furry kids are to people. Especially when Our Humans are going though tough times. We are able to give the love and companionship that is often missing from so many people's lives.

There are over 50 million Americans who currently receive Food Stamp assistance and many of those people have cats or dogs. All too often the cherished family pet must be surrendered to a shelter because the money is not there to buy pet food.

The Pet Food Stamp program, thanks to the generosity of contributors and patrons, is able  to eliminate that heart-wrenching decision by making sure pet owners are given free monthly home delivery of all necessary food supplies to maintain the health and vitality of their pets.

Please visit the website to learn more, apply for food stamps or make a donation. And if you know of someone who may need help, please refer them to the website.  Click Here!

That's a great idea! The Meals on Wheels program here in the city has a similar thing where they raise money to distribute pet food to their senior/disabled customers. They found that people were splitting their Meals on Wheels food with their pets and so not getting enough nutrition themselves.

Fantastic idea! That is something that should have happened long ago!

this is a fantastic idea. The local woman's shelter started doing fundraising events to raise funds to build an animal shelter. It turns out a lot of women will not leave their abusive husbands because of their pets and knowing their pets will end up dead if they leave.
