It’s a donation-based program that helps needy families feed their pets.
Marc Okan, the program’s founder and director, said it works by having the pet owner’s income verified, then they will give the pet food each month from pet food retailer Pet Food Direct for six months.
“We’re not looking for government funding at this point,” Okon said. “Should the government be willing to provide assistance further down the line, we will look into it.”
As of now, the only way to apply is by filling out an online application. Okan said once they open their new office, they will begin accepting applications through mail.
They are still waiting to be approved as an official nonprofit.
