Can You Buy Dog Food with Food Stamps?

Pet food is considered to be a non-food item. And because of that, low income families that are unable to feed their dogs because of unemployment and tough economic climates have no choice but to put their dog family members in overcrowded shelters and heartbreakingly, euthanize them.

Karma Rescue in Los Angeles, California aims to keep dogs and their families together by providing lifesaving medical aid to low-income families and free spay/neuter services to underserved communities throughout Los Angeles.

No family should have to give up their loved pet because of financial reasons. What if we could reduce economic euthanasia of pets by keeping them healthy and with their families where they belong?

That’s what Karma does. Find out more about Karma here: and follow their Facebook page here:
