Brother can you spare some kibble? Free pet food programs

When times are tough for people, times are just as tough for their pets.

In fact, sometimes personal budget issues get so bad that people and their pets are required to part ways. If a family is struggling just to put food on it's own table, that sometimes means Fido and his food dish have to go.

The struggle to keep beloved pets properly fed and at home, is the driving force behind a new wave of free pet food programs which is beginning to take hold across the country.

In some instances, the free pet food programs are initiated by local animal control and animal shelter agencies. Such is the case with a well received pet food program thriving in Floyd County, Ga.
