Ultimate goal is to create sustainable and scalable transitional shelters, which will help homeless pet owners regain their independence, while offering a valuable service to the local community.
"We Believe at Pals N Pets, Homeless Pet Owners are the Most in Need, and have a Higher Potential of turning their lives around, given an Equal Opportunity to services while maintaining Together with their Pets." - Iliana Belinc, Founder of Pals N Pets
PalsNPets, a 501(c)(3) Los Angeles nonprofit dedicated to creating shelters specific to homeless pet owners and their pets.
According to Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority 2019, homeless people consist of:
Estimated up to 25% Homeless People have Pets and are NOT accounted for on this list or in OUR community. This is a neglected group of individuals who are on the rise and being denied services due to having a pet.
Pets may be a barrier, but they don’t have to be. Our focus at PalsNPets is how therapeutic pets are to their homeless owners - discouraging crime, drug abuse, suicide and treating untold mental illnesses through companionship.
Our solution at PalsNPets is to have shelters and offer suitable programs designed to fit the needs of homeless pet owners and their pets, together.
We believe homeless pet owners and their pets are the most in need, and have a higher potential in turning their lives around. Owning a pet is a big responsibility, and often these individuals have shown that care and love for their pets. Help us help them move forward.
Our vision is to grow our organization across the nation helping two lives Together.
