For some people having a pet is more than their budget can handle. With the rising cost of food, budgeting for pet food has forced some people to give up their pets.
A volunteer group is trying to reverse that trend.
Jean Zimmerman, a volunteer for the Pet Food Food Pantry, said that she is concerned that people will not be able to afford keeping their pets.
"I know that I've seen people cry when they received food for their pets," said Zimmerman.
