I am wanting to find a way to help people who have pets but can't afford to keep food for them and to help with some sort of medical card for animals, I almost lost my beloved dog because we couldn't afford to take her in but the vet told us what to try and it saved her. We used to be able to afford our care but my fiance lost his job and with gas prices so high and everything else. And in all our stress of being poor but still managing to take care of our animals, I thought how many others out there have problems? But they don't want to give up their animals to shelters and im sure shelters don't want to see that happen either.
So I want to gather up others to help me end this, we need actual animal welfare, something like the welfare does for people with food stamps and medical cards, why not animals??? Sure some will say if you can't afford them then don't get them, well what if you could at one time but then something happens and you can't anymore, we don't want to give up our family members, would you give up your children just because you can't afford them? I didn't think so.
So let's try to come up with something, please, make them stop forgetting our other family members who need as much help as we do. It's not only hard times for people.
