Operation Blankets of Love's (OBOL) mission is to improve the well-being of homeless animals and increase chances for survival and adoption – with the ultimate aim of eliminating animal homelessness. OBOL provides donated recycled and new aid and comfort items to homeless animals that consists of stray, sick, neglected, owner-dumped and abused animals to shelters, rescues, pets of the homeless, fosters and sanctuaries.
Studies show and experts agree that shelter animals with blankets and comfort items make them calm, feel safe and secure, warm and comfortable and are happier. The potential adopter can picture them in their home. This increases their chance for adoption which SAVES LIVES!!

We've met a couple people who could not find housing for themselves unless they gave up a very much loved pet, even companion animals. One woman we met is living in her van as a senior citizen rather than give up three animals. We also met a man who stayed homeless until his very old dog died. He knew that due to the animal's age it would likely be put to death if he gave it to a shelter.
So we want to tell you about BLANKETS OF LOVE.
If you have any old towels, comforters, blankets, sheets, even old sofa pillows (that do not have roaches, bedbugs, or the like) you can donate these and they will be used well. So it's recycling.
Just to let you know, some local pet feed stores such as RED BARN in the No Hollywood Ralph's Plaza do take collections.
