Sue volunteers to donate food and blankets to needy shelters in Kern County.

One of our most popular volunteer events is to host an OBOL animal supplies collection drive. Collect pet items such as gently used or new blankets, towels of all sizes, pet beds, toys, crates, pet food and treats for dogs and cats. Yes, we are green friendly!

You could also hold a bake sale, yard sale, car wash, or dog wash day!
