The Pet Food Stamps Program

Unfortunately for many US cat and dog owners the cost of buying pet supplies is not included and in these times of financial difficulty they find themselves without food for their pets and therefore unable to keep them. It is a very sad statistic that four million pets out of the seven million given up to shelters are put down every year.

Registered NYS non-profit corporation, The Pet Food Stamps program

is attempting to bridge the gap for such owners and prevent the wholly unnecessary death of innocent and much loved pets.

offering good, healthy food supplies on 100% free, monthly, home delivery for a period of 6-months. Approval is granted by individual assessment based on pet owner need and personal income. Consequently owners with more than one pet may find themselves eligible for multi pet product deliveries.

 

“Due to the high demand for this service – thousands of applications daily it can take several weeks before owners receive an yes or no answer.” ~ Marc Okon, program founder and executive director.

 

Similar services are available at Washington Animal Rescue League:

“One of our missions is to provide income-qualified families with discounted pet care, vaccinations, vaccine clinics, neutered clinics and vet care. We have a new medical centre on site … We also have a food bank run entirely on donations.” ~ League spokesman Matt Williams
