OBOL Continues to Serve During Covid

Hot Cars Kill Dogs

Don't leave your pet in a hot car... even for a minute.

Operation Blankets of Love (OBOL)

is a leading animal welfare and emergency relief non-profit organization in California and beyond.

Every month, OBOL helps 1000+ animals in shelters, rescue groups, and wildlife sanctuaries

What sets OBOL apart from other animal welfare organizations?

OBOL_White O with Paw

We "rescue the rescuers" by donating critical pet supplies

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

We also help pets of the homeless and struggling pet owners

including veterans, seniors, the disabled, and low-income families

OBOL is on-call for emergency relief

for natural disasters like earthquakes, fires, and the pandemic

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!

Our success depends on your financial donations, which allow OBOL to offer free resources that help suffering homeless animals find forever homes.

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.
