Food Stamps … For Pets?!! A new donation-based program called Pet Food Stamps aims to provide food for pets of low-income families who otherwise could not afford to feed their pets. Based in NY, the program is open to anyone in the United States. More than 45,000 pets have already been signed up in the past 2 weeks, according to the program’s founder Marc Okon. Once need & income is verified, the families will receive pet food each month from Pet Food Direct for a 6 month period.
