501(C)(3) NONPROFIT OFFERING SERVICES & CREATING SHELTERS FOR HOMELESS PET OWNERS AND THEIR PETS IN ORDER TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR BOTH, TOGETHER!
Ultimate aim is to create sustainable and scalable transitional shelters specific to homeless pet owners, to help them regain their independence while maintaining together with their pets. We strive to see a time when shelters and services will no longer discriminate against those with a pet.
"We Believe 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 servicing and creating shelters specific to the needs of homeless pet owners and their pets.
According to Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority 2019, homeless people consist of:
An estimated 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.
Problem Majority of existing shelters lack infrastructure and resources to effectively support both homeless pet owner and their pet together. Leaving homeless pet owners with a difficult choice; abandon their pets for services or remain on the streets with their beloved pet.
Our solution PalsNPets future is to create dedicated shelters for homeless pet owners and offer suitable programs designed to fit the specific needs of these individuals with 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. PalsNPets is developing dedicated homeless pet owner shelters with programs designed to support the specific needs of people with pets experiencing homelessness.
