Against. Food stamps are a last resort to help aid a family in obtaining food. It doesn't even usually provide for enough funds to cover the families entire food needs throughout the month. Our country needs to make the policies more strict to help prevent fraud and over spending in the welfare department. The government cannot afford people to feed their pets.
If this is the same thing as what I read yesterday, these are not funded by the government but rather private donations. They can do what they want.
I did have to re-home my dog a few years ago due to finances. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. DH lost his job(s) and we were getting food from food pantrys, we had to make a choice. And our dog was just too expensive, our kids had to come first. It was the most heartbreaking thing ever. We did what was best though, and Wyatt has an awesome home (we still get updates.)
It would be a good idea for people with service animals. For house pets, I don;t agree. If you can't afford to feed them then you shouldn't have them. If you can't buy them food then how are they paying for the vet care and other things the animals need.
