Do you think those on Foodstamps should have a dog, cat, etc.?
Oh, I know this post will strike some nerves and my answer is NO. If you can't provide your family with food then how will you afford a vet bill, get the dog shots, spayed, etc.? What if it gets sick?
This EXCLUDES those who apply for food stamps, (your hubby or YOU lose your job) and you already own Fido. But if you are on the system, and then you go and adopt Fido, is that fair?
