^This. If somebody came on here and asked for it, and I was financially able to at the time, I would send some cash to them for dog food. I've been in the situation where we would not have money for a week or two and we had no more dog food, and I wish there was somebody willing to help out. Plus, honestly, if somebody was to come on the forum and scam me just to get a few bucks, they obviously need it for something. I mean, regardless I wouldn't be able to send a fortune, but in cases like that really, any little bit helps. Only time I would have an issue is when it's the same person asking over and over again, especially if it is in a short time frame. That is when the alarm bells would go off, and I'd have to step back from helping.
