This is a great ideal.but most of the people in my area lie and gets way to much food stamps and single working mothers get around $40.00 but if you can not afford to feed your family then you should not get a pet. My dog has to eat special food. It cost me alot but i have no kids so i can handle it. Need help with the vet bills thought...
I am sorry I cannot...If service connected VETS and Disabled Americans like myself, cannot get their benefits, only illegals and immigrants get food stamps and welfare, so why give PETS money we don't have? If people CANNOT afford pets, they shouldn't have them! I am sorry Marica...it's time to get rid of this FREE stuff mentality, and for people to take responsibilities!
Friggin Unbelievable!...I'm with you Marc...Turn em back into the wild and let the fittest survive.
LOL Don...you understand that too...too much free stuff...there has got to be a limit...to things.
We have veterans in this country who cannot get their disability pensions due to war, or chemicals...government prefers to give elderly Chinese immigrants free HUD housing in California, while our streets FILL up with homeless Americans, that's totally insane!!
So it's better to sentence innocent animals to death because their families can not afford to feed them anymore?
Marc, being a veteran dependent and a military supporter I do agree with what you are saying. And support your comments. But being an animal owner and animal lover I like the idea of the animal food stamps. And I agree that there are ALOT of people that will and do abuse the system. And no mater what any of us do there will always be those that will abuse them. As with everything it would take some time and tweaking to get the system right and even then there will probably be problems. My...

My husband is a disabled vet and recently we have lost our home. we now have to live with family members just to have a roof. We have pets and thankfully they do have food, but i see lots of poorer than us who could us this. Like everything there will need to be limits.

What a terrific help to all those people struggling in this economy to feed their families and their pets as well.
Why not support, they deserve it as much as the rest of their family!!! <3
I think this is a great idea & wish they have thought of this sooner & can save both pets & peoples lives who really need it & I support this all the way & hope all animal lovers will too! This should also include vet stuff too & to help encourage people to spay & neuter their pets as well though pet education is always key as well which should be done in schools & in lower income areas to help with the unwanted pet over population issues!
They should just make pet food ok to buy with regular pet food stamp cards, and make "do u have pets?" A question when u apply for food stamps so u get more $ then it could be great and not so much abused maybe.
I seriously hope this pledge passes, however, I know the system and how shady people can be when abusing the system. As long as the food stamps are seperate and apart from the assistance that people get, then I'm good with it! Hell, I would luv assistance when it came to feeding my pets! Who wouldn't?
it gets pretty expensive huh.... i have to feed 6 cats and 2 dogs.
Hi Isabel SO you amongst al our other Kokosing people are animal lovers toooo! I have 5 cats..little compared wih your numbers,,and-but in the end it's all about love&responsibility.. hugs Lisa "R"
U know it gf! And I get da best stuff for my baby Chi!
No one has to feed animals ..... It is by choice that you own these pets ...... Take responsibility now and feed them IF ONE CAN NOT FEED THEIR PETS ..... WHO IS PAYING THE VET BILLS FOR SHOTS OR IF THE PET NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION ..... WE ARE TURNING INTO A NATION WHO WANTS EVERYTHING FREE WHICH MEANS SOMEONE ELSE IS FORCED TO PAY FOR IT..
What a BRILLIANT idea. Oh, Jayne - I'm with you. Gotta get it going. And free spay days and worming and needles.
your click helps these people get something done. I can't believe I have NOT one friend here that cares about animals or their welfare. How do you treat your kids?
One thing always gets someone wanting more ..... This one wants free spade days and worming which means this is not a pet that all of a sudden would go without ....
. They want to get a new animal .... one they can not afford and have all the care provided ..... Do you need a vehicle as well as insurance and upkeep for the vehicle ..... live within your means ...... when you want something you need to cut back on something else ....
I am a 63 year old woman who would do anything fot my pets .I have adopted 6 cats and 2 dogs I would give everything for my pets and do without .I saved my babies from death and will do everything I can do for them.
