 Iliana Belinc is the Founder & Executive Director of PalsNPets a 501(c)(3) Los Angeles-based nonprofit founded in 2018.  She shares her story with our Founder, Genevieve Frederick. She talks about the human-animal bond and how she works with shelters to help pets and the homeless to be housed together.  Passion pours from both founders throughout their conversation.  You don't want to miss this one!About Iliana Belinc: Her passion derives from her grandfather who rescued street dogs in Mexico since the 1940s. As Iliana was growing up, he would tell stories of being an orphan as a kid and sleeping many nights with the street dogs.It was no surprise in 2016, Iliana’s motivation for PalsNPets was inspired by witnessing a familial interaction between an unhoused pet owner and a local bypasser. This positive interaction lead Iliana to do her own personal research with unhoused pet owners on the street and in human shelters. Iliana quickly learned this unconditional bond between an unhoused person and their pet is not only beautiful but can also be transformative in their life if human shelters had the proper support in allowing pets. This is when PalsNPets was born.
