I guess the idea behind this has good intentions but in my opinion if you can't afford to feed a pet, get rid of it instead of making it suffer and depending on other people to provide food for it.

Agreed, if you can not afford to feed and properly care for a pet you should not adopt or buy one.
BUT- there are many people that fall on hard times, either through job loss or illness, etc that might have temporary trouble with pet care. Pet care can be expensive!
Suggesting that someone handover a well loved pet because they can no longer afford it is not necessarily the answer. Shelters are full enough as it is.
People need to be responsible pet owners and I think this helps people do that. Even if it is kind of a handout.

...and again, I bet even with falling on hard times they'd still buy their beer & smokes :)

I just had to add that.

Unfortunately, you're probably right about that in some cases......
