When I was homeless, in the mid-1980s, I picked up a stray dog. He too, after all, was homeless. I got some food stamps, $70 bucks for the whole month. It wasn't enough for me to stay fed. I had to supplement it with handouts from various charity food banks. But I wasn't allowed to buy dog any food using my stamps; even though I tried. And there were no handouts at the food bank for him. I shared what food I had, and once used $5 of (literally) the last $10 in my pocket to buy him a bag of food that I lugged around (having nowhere to store it). To make a long story short, I was fortunate enough to meet a dog breeder at a mission to whom I gave the animal.


In the short term, is there any way to help out this man and his dog? Any charities that would take donations of food or money to help out service animals of PWD?
