A new program for low-income families is offering 'food stamps' for pets, but it's not a program from the federal government.
Pet Food Stamps, a non-profit organization out of New York, is offering help to anyone in the United States who can't afford to feed their pets.
Shelters across the country are hoping this will help keep animals off the streets and out of overcrowded shelters.
"In the last four years, we here at the animal services center have taken (in) over 56,000 animals. That's one-fourth of the population here in DoÃ±a Ana County we've taken in in animals," said Dr. Beth Vesco-Mock, the director of the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley.
Applying for the program is simple. You just log on to the Pet Food Stamps website and fill out the information. Okon said those who qualify for government assistance probably qualify for this program.

Well this could be a positive program especially since it will keep animals off the streets and the government isn't funding it.
This seems to be a really good idea and cheaper than re homing and less stressful for the pet and owner.
Nice idea, lets just hope folks don't continue to keep getting more pets that they can't afford. But, it's really nice that there are people looking out for our cute critters out there.
Absolutely off the charts and what a wonderful way to help keep those possibly teetering on the fence of depression, a breath of joy, happiness, and most of all love!!!!
What a great idea? it definitely will be a big help to pet owners and a member of their family. Some people give up their pets because they just get tired of having them around, while others have no choice because of finances. I live in NYC and have not heard about this, I have to look into it.
