A New York non-profit organization is starting up a food stamp program for pet owners.
They are using their own money and are free to do whatever they want with it but when did we become such an entitled society that pet owners feel they need assistance?
A new charity called Pet Food Stamps promises to help low-income families who are struggling to feed their pets. The program is based in New York but recently became open to anyone in the United States, ABC News reported. More than 45,000 pets have been signed up in two weeks. If a family’s application is approved, they receive pet food each month from a retailer for a six-month period.
But conservatives who don’t like food stamps can calm down: these so-called "food stamps" aren’t actually food stamps. “We’re not looking for government funding at this point,” Pet Food Stamps executive director Marc Okon told ABC.
