Area vagrants devastated by pet food tainting
CINCINNATI - The lack of available pet food throughout the Tri-state has resulted in increased hardship for area vagrants who count on pet food for survival. Many homeless people who cannot afford food typically consumed by humans instead regularly purchase pet food. The recent pet food tainting incident has resulted in a scarcity of pet food never before experienced by the homeless. A spokesperson for the Coalition For The Homeless commented, “This pet food scarcity is only an inconvenience for pets because they can eat human food if necessary but it is a catastrophe for the homeless because we can’t afford human food.” Community members who wish to help are encouraged by homeless advocates to consider donating cans of untainted pet food to homeless shelters.
