While some things didn’t surprise me all that much, one did --- the rise in pet food pantries across the nation, as rescue groups and concerned individuals try to find ways to keep pets with their families during these tough times. I find folks who take on these sorts of tasks to some of the very best, most thoughtful people on the planet. They use their time (and nearly always their own resources) to help others in need.
To that end, there’s a new group afoot, and you can help. M.J. Rogers recently created the Yahoo Group Pet Coupons Central. The premise is as simple as it sounds.

If you can take a few moments out of a Sunday (or Thursday night, we’re not picky) and clip coupons from your local newspaper, magazines or web sites and forward them on for use, consider joining the Pet Coupons Central Yahoo Group. You can make a difference from the comfort of your dining room table. If you’re interested in clipping coupons but aren’t much of a “joiner”, you can clip, snip and send coupons to the following address. Coupons for cat food are especially needed:
2001 East Cross Ave. # 104
Tulare, CA 93274
If you know of anyone who might be in need of coupons, have them send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “Coupons Needed” and someone from Pet Coupons Central will get back to them.
If everyone does a little, we can all do a lot.
