From the post on Grocery outlet: someone was saying that food stamps don't cover pet food.
Well, the Seattle Humane Society does have a Pet Food Bank for low income people.
This is an incredibly worthy organization, and I would urge pet owners to donate to them. I am copying their wish list from their website.Donations of money are always welcome as well. You know, the next time you are at Value Villiage, you might want to pick up a dog or cat bowl, or a fleece blanket...then on to PetSmart, when you buy some food for your feline/canine friend, why not get a little gift card for the Seattle Humane Society, or pick up a few extra cans of food to donate to those who have trouble afffording the food for their companion?
