Operation Blankets of Love (OBOL)

is a one-of-a-kind animal welfare and emergency relief non-profit organization that works to help to save the lives of homeless animals. Since 2008, OBOL has been providing pet food, and critical pet items to animal rescues and shelters.

This makes the dogs and cats healthier, happier and more adoptable.
