Pet Food Stamps offering help to pet owners

Posted: Updated:
(Toledo News Now) -

We've heard of food stamps for people, but what about food stamps for pets?

Providing food for pet owners who can't afford it is the mission of the "Pet Food Stamps" program, a non-profit in New York. 

In these tough times, many people are forced to surrender their pets because they can't afford to keep them.

The Pet Food Stamps program provides free monthly home delivery of all necessary food supplies to maintain their pets' health. They also accept contributions. They want to provide pet owners the option to keep their pets while going through tough times.

Of course, this isn't a new concept for animal lovers in Ohio - Humane Ohio Pet Food Bank provides food for "pet parents" and those caring for stray cats.
