American Pet owners STRUGGLE to Provide sign now

Can you imagine not knowing if you're going to eat or not?
Could you imagine a family member becoming ill, and not having enough money to pay for their care, their survival?

Our current economic crisis affects all American families. And for almost two-thirds of Americans, pets are valued members of the family and they need your help. Americans are struggling to put food in pet food dishes, let alone the table.

Companion animals increase the quality of life for their owners as most pets are valuable members of many American families. But incomes are decreasing or disappearing and many families cannot afford to feed and provide proper care for their loving animals.

Americans need more help accessing food for their families, including their pets.

Please help to pass legislation that makes food more readily available for all Americans.

Due to the global economic crisis people are sacrificing a lot but they are not the only ones. Household pets, often considered to be a part of the family, are affected by financial hardship as well.

Owners of dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, chickens, even iguanas, pets of all kinds are finding it increasingly difficult to feed and care for their additional family members. And these animals are becoming strays.

The health and safety of pets depend on loving care which sometimes has substantial costs. Pet food and regular veterinary care are necessities for companion animals, but the costs add up quickly.

Food and care costs have escalated while owners incomes remain fixed or are declining. Small pet care has become unaffordable to most, and owners are allowing their dogs, cats to stray.

But there is a glimmer of hope. Some area food pantries are recognizing the desperate need for animal care, and are distributing pet food along with their grocery donations. This is NOT yet available in EVERY COUNTY across America, especially here in Florida.

Here in Florida, our search for help with food or care has left us empty handed. The closest "Pet Food Pantry" is too far to drive, some 60 or even 200 miles. EVERY COUNTY in America needs to offer help so pet owners can provide and to make this help accessible to all.

My thoughts are that if help were provided to low income families to provide for their pets, this would free up worries and neglect, also help to provide in other areas of our lives and keep these animals "home."

EVERYONE let's tell Congress, County, City, State Commissioners, Local Humane Societies and shelters, Local Newspapers, churches, ANYONE who might care. Tell community officials of how this concern needs immediate attention.

Get the word out across America showing concern for this escalating dilemma of our needs for food and reliable basic medical care for our pets during the current economic crisis.

Please help those struggling to accommodate their needs to provide better, and keep these hungry, sick and abandoned "underprivileged" animals off our streets.

Thank you for hearing our cry for help.
