As a person who has fallen on hard times in the past and skipped meals to make sure my cat had her food, this I like. Even some meals-on-wheels have started putting pet food in with the meal so the human doesn't end up going hungry because they gave their meal to their pets. Pet aren't just for looking at; they are companions and some times aids in a person health.

I personally like this. I think there is a difference between getting an animal when you know you can't afford vet bills and quality food and being able to take care of an animal but then falling on hard times like so many in this economy. Never want to see an animal suffer.

I saw something about this on the news last night. So glad to hear that families can keep their pets, and be able to feed them.

Food stamps can be used for many things that they shouldn't be used for ~ like Coca Cola.
I don't think that's a necessity, do you ?

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Nice article from the Wallstreet Journal about Pets on Food Stamps and the privately funded program that makes this possible. People who are already on government assistance can apply for free pet food.
