The economy is not only rough for humans, it's rough for pets, too. The past year, there has been an influx of animals turned into shelters or worse, abandoned to fend for themselves due to their owners being evicted or their houses foreclosed upon. There just aren't enough homes out there for these pets, and, sadly, four-legged family members are sometimes euthanized for no fault of their own.
Located in metro Atlanta is Daffy's Pet Soup Kitchen! It was established by the SOS Club, a licensed non-profit organization in the area, and it is a brilliant idea. Not only do they offer food assistance, by they offer supplies, discounted vetting programs, and a variety of other services.
This could possibly be my next favorite charity here in Georgia. A bag of dog food is pocket change for some and expensive for others. If you have an extra $10 or so, consider donating food to the food bank or contact them for other ways to help.
