ABOUT THE FOUNDER & CEO

Angelina Cortez is a model, actress, spokesperson, mother, service disabled veteran, and entrepreneur. Before jump-starting her acting and modeling career, Angelina enlisted in the U.S. Army where she served for two years. 

After leaving the Army, Angelina was bitten by the entrepreneur bug and created and founded PETS2GO! International, Inc. - a pet product and services company with a true passion for pets on the go. Angelina is also active in the areas of animal adoption services through product donation, fundraising, and pet adoption campaigns.

HER 'WHY'

Being a frequent traveler meant Angelina often had to make the difficult decision whether or not to bring her furry friends along or leave them at home. She always opted to bring them; however, she quickly found that traveling with pets could be quite an ordeal.

Bulky pet carriers were expensive and difficult to manage at the airport. They also didn't provide a place for her cats to relive themselves. After spending countless hours in airport bathrooms and cleaning up messes from her own cats (along with assisting others in similar predicaments), Angelina knew she had to do something. 

Angelina's love for pets is not reserved exclusively for cats. She also has a soft spot for man's best friend, and quickly realized there were no dog necessity travel items being offered at hotels, resorts, airports or emergency shelters. She saw a need and created a realistic and elegant solution. She is now the champion for luxury pet-friendly supplies and amenities and has made it her life's work to provide amazing customer experiences for all Pets2Go! clients worldwide.
