Helping Veterans with Pets

OBOL is one of the few organizations assisting veterans with pets, including homeless and low-income veterans with pets. We partner with the Veterans Administration on a monthly basis to provide pet food and supplies to VA locations in the San Fernando Valley, West LA, Ventura, and Hemet.

OBOL helps veterans keep their pets safe and healthy so their pets can stay with them. Our program provides a sense of family and emotional comfort.

Additionally, we participate in three VA Stand Down Day events where we also provide crucial pet supplies such as food, treats, blankets, toys, leashes, collars, and pet carriers to ensure pets are fed and can be safely contained (especially important if the veteran and pet(s) are living on the streets). We help 50+ veterans each event, many of whom have more than one pet.

OBOL volunteers help us administer these services, and your donations help us transport the pet food and supplies to veterans in need.

A homeless veteran thanks OOL to get new outfits for his pup! Plus tons of food and treats. They also got free vet care for his senior dog.q

On behalf of the Los Angeles VA GLA HCS patients and staff, we would like to extend our appreciation to you for your donation of 4 cases of dog food, leashes and collars, 30 boxes of Milkbones, and 36 cans of dog food.


It is through the efforts of community partners like you that allow us to continue the quality care and services that we seek to provide our deserving Veterans. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again for future events.

Thank you so much to OBOL for continuous support of our country's Veterans. You helped so many that are seeing hard times and need a little help caring for their fur babies.
