We "rescue the rescuers" by donating critical pet supplies

like food, treats, blankets, towels, beds, crates, leashes, collars, toys, and medical supplies

We believe that no animal should be abused, neglected, or abandoned

spending its existence in fear, pain, and hunger

Instead, animals have the right to live a life filled with love and compassion.


Since 2008, OBOL has helped organizations and individuals including:

animal rescue groups
foster caretakers
animal shelters
students receiving humane education
homeless people with pets
agencies that serve homeless people with pets

A big thank you to our supporters!
We would not be able to help over 12,000 homeless dogs and cats a year without you!

Watch our work in action

Blankets Can Save Lives

Shelters Have No Budget for Bedding

In many shelters, pets lay on cold, cement floors--nothing cushioning their joints or keeping them cozy and warm. These animals feel anxious and are often scared of people.

OBOL Makes Animals More Adoptable

Soft comfort items like blankets, towels, and pet beds help homeless animals relax and provide a home-like setting, making it easier for prospective adoptive parents to imagine the pet in their home.

Host a Collection Drive

Be part of the solution for animal homelessness by collecting dog and cat food/treats, new or gently used blankets, towels, pet beds, toys, and any other pet-related items.
