This is a great program because a lot of people have to give there animals away
good idea! At least true anima llovers with caring loving homes can also rest in peace knowing that their pets willnot go hungry! Pets play a very ipmortant role in all people`s lives, companionship, protectors, guides for the blind, police dogs, etc etc, they can even heal broken hearts! If a Goverment is going to allocate stamps all I can say is thank you! Many a day I have given neighours and poor people food for their pets through my Charity company! love melindi xx.
i am very happy to hear that Robert, plz post a pic of your new babys as soon you can !!! All the best to you and your new soon to be little family !!! Love melindi xx
Totally agree with you Melindi Charle.
Complainers: The article says the pet food stamps will be funded by corporate and individual donations, NOT THE GOVERNMENT.Please read it.
Interesting I didn't see that previously posted.
This was on T.V. 2 weeks ago, and I was wondering why everyone just assumes it's a government program. We are going over the fiscal cliff and may see some of the biggest budget cuts, and do people really believe the government would fund this. It would of made the news circuit for weeks!!
I oppose food stamps for people. They are unconstitutional and "we" are broke minus $17 Trillion.
this is the flaw in the name of the organization: it is totally privately funded. listen to the interview: he says he would not accept government funding. he also states he is a ron paul supporter.
David Macko you sir are a idiot... dont like it then dont get on it... also, i hate to see you get disabled, fired, or god forbid something tragic happens to you in your life that you would have to get food stamps to feed your dumbass... what are you going to do if that happens since you are too "proud"??? starve??? ha. as if... get off your high horse buster...
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.
This is a good idea but it makes me worry that people still spend this money on items such as cigarettes, scratch tickets and other meaniless things. I have signed this pledge but people get your heads on straight and take responsibility.
watch the video.....noone gets MONEY...delivery of pet food ONLY, occurs when the owner shows all appropriate documentation of hardship and is approved.
It was just in reference. I watched and signed. Its a great idea and hopefully other programs do the same. My comment had nothing to do with program just others when people get money, spend it on nonessentials and then realize their responsiblites cant be taken care of.
you are only referring to the minority of people who are on assistance. what about the 85-90 percent of us who do need it? please give us some credit.
FOOD stamps...they buy food, not vitamin supplements, energy drinks, alcohol, tobacco, diapers, pay rent, electricity, gas, water, garbage....FOOD stamps! Ironically I just read an article, they can buy certain seeds that will grow into food.
I don't like that antiabortionists are also against social programs, or that religious people fail to do as Jesus would...oh sorry has nothing to do with this petition of or the topic.
It was just in reference.My comment had nothing to do with program just others when people get votes, waste it on non-sense-icals and then realize their responsiblites cant be taken care of...to their religion or previous stated stance...
it should be a card saying PET Food Stamps. Try sell that!
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.
I am disable
