The Pet Food Stamps program, a registered NY State non-profit corporation available throughout the United States, has been created to fill the void in the United States Food Stamp program which excludes the purchase of pet food. In these rough economic times, many pet owners are forced to abandon their beloved pet to the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League or other animal shelters due to the inability to pay for their basic food supply and care. There are over 50 million Americans who currently receive Food Stamps, many with dogs or cats, who simply cannot afford to feed their animals, and these cherished companions are dropped off at animal shelters where they will most likely be put to sleep. Many people are also forced to choose between feeding their pets or themselves. A recent New York Times article states that “animal shelters have reported a steep rise in the number of cats and dogs being surrendered as owners face unemployment, home foreclosures, evictions and other financial hardships.” As more families struggle with difficult choices like paying the rent or buying food, some have to choose between keeping their pet and putting food on the table.. Seven million pets are surrendered to shelters each year due to the inability of pet parents to pay for food, with four million of those pets put to sleep. The Pet Food Stamps program aims to eliminate the needless death of these loving pets and keep families together.
The Pet Food Stamps program is not a government program and exclusively funds its operation from donations from individuals, business and foundation grants. We are able to eliminate the heart-wrenching decision of surrendering a pet by making sure these pet owners are given free home deliveries of Pet Food to maintain the health, vitality and companionship of their pets.
