What is a pet owner to do when their budget is stretched so tight that he cannot afford to buy food for his pets? Many pet owners have been known to skimp on meals for themselves in order to feed their furry companions while others had to make the painful decision of giving their pets up for adoption. What pet owners may not realize is that there are pet food pantries across the country who are more than willing to lend a hand for those who have been hit hard by the economy.
In New Hampshire, pet owners have found relief from Elderpet a small organization whose mission is to provide dog and cat food for income qualified individuals. Simply by completing a Pet Food Application Rockingham and Strafford county residents receive an ample supply of pet food (as shown above)every 4-6 weeks.
In addition to food assistance, Elderpet has an established no-interest loan fund for responsible pet owners who find themselves with unexpected (not routine) veterinary expenses. The way that it works is if your pet needs care that you cannot afford, Elderpet pays the veterinarian the amount that you cannot cover.
If you are in need of pet food and emergency care assistance and live outside of New Hampshire, don't worry. I've done my research for you as well! Here are a few links to get your paws on:
