Operation Blankets of Love (OBOL)

is an animal welfare emergency relief non-profit organization founded in 2008 with a mission to support shelters, rescues, pets of the homeless, 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.
