1. On Aug. 1, San Francisco is scheduled to launch a new program, Wonderful Opportunities for Occupants and Fidos (aka WOOF), that will pay panhandlers to take care of abandoned dogs as long as they pack up their cardboard signs and stop begging on the streets. 

    Under the program, panhandlers will receive $50 to $75 a week to adopt a dog from a shelter. They will receive training sessions, and the city will provide them with “all the dog food, toys, leashes, and veterinary care they need.”

    Proof puppies can fix any problem?
