How did this project come to be?
Jen Halpern is founder, creator and president of Pillows for Paws. She is a native New Yorker and a casting director who has a very special place in her heart for all animals. Growing up with rescues in her childhood and becoming aware of the many homeless animals on the city's streets, Jen decided to speak out on behalf of them. She is working to raise awareness and encourage people to adopt from local shelters and rescue groups. Her very own rescue cats, Stash, Squeaker and Jade prove over and over how much joy there is in adopting your forever best friends.
