SNAP for pets

Wow. I guess it really shouldn't be surprising these days.
There is nothing to prevent people from buying food meant for human consumption and feeding it to their pets. I believe it happens fairly frequently. I know people will buy deli meats for their dogs.
That reminds me of what Max said about food banks/pantries. Our local food bank distributes a large amount of food, and one of the things that qualifies you as a recipient is possessing an EBT card. It is a privately funded food bank which often is so flush with food donations that they share with other banks.
