I think that this is a great idea, would prevent shelters that are already overcrowded in becoming even more so and could also prevent pets from becoming euthanized. Families also don’t have to give up their pets who have cared for and loved them unconditionally.

It’s not a government program. It’s a donation-based nonprofit group. Marc Okon created it, hoping to let low-income families keep their pets when times get rough.
