Panhandlers Given $75 A Week To Foster Puppies, Chefs Told Not To Apply

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco   hopes a cold nose and a warm heart will help end the problem of panhandling.

In what could be the first program of its kind in the nation, the city beginning in August will offer panhandlers up to $75 a week to stop begging and foster puppies from the city animal shelter until the pups are ready for adoption. The pilot program, called Wonderful Opportunities for Occupants and Fidos, or WOOF, is intended to meet panhandlers’ need for income while helping more animals avoid being euthanized.Those suffering from severe mental illness or with a history of violence will also be barred. Anyone caught panhandling while in the program will lose the animal.
