Operation Blankets of Love (OBOL)

is a leading animal welfare and emergency relief non-profit organization founded in 2008. OBOL's mission is to support shelters and rescues by providing much needed food, aid and comfort supplies. With this support, we contribute to the health of homeless and distressed animals along their journey to find a forever home. We service California, including internationally.


OBOL founder Eileen Smulson says," Every day is a disaster for a homeless dog or cat."

We "rescue the rescuers" by donating critical pet supplies so their animals get healthier and stronger so they can be adopted into a loving home

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

We also help pets of the homeless and struggling pet owners
