Pet Food Stamps available for struggling owners
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hard times can mean making a heartbreaking decision for pet owners. But now there's help for people who can't afford to feed their four-legged family members.
Marc Okon has started Pet Food Stamps. It's free pet food paid for by private owners.
Okon got the idea after seeing so many animals given to shelters because their owners don't have the money to buy pet food.
"Basically, you go on the website, fill out an application, and then three weeks from now, you'll be contacted and verified. Should you be verified, you will be getting a delivery of pet food from PetFlow.com for a six-month term and then you'll have to re-apply in six months," said Okon.
Food is available for dogs, cats and even parakeets. It's a nationwide program proving so popular, even though the office isn't set up, the website keeps crashing.
