Yes, this e mail looks familiar. Last week over 2,000 people read this. I am resending because this was asking for a financial donation. Only 4 people donated.
So we are appealing to you again. In honor of all of you on Mother's Day that have four-legged fur babies that are lucky to have a home and in honor or in memory of the pet companion you have..make that monetary donation.
We need to continue. OBOL collects, transports and delivers comfort items free of charge over $5,000 or more to 1,000 homeless animals a month even raising funds for spay and neuter and shots for pets of the homeless so the animal control does not take them away.
Food, pet beds, treats, crates that are $100 to $300 each to transport from the shelter or ship across country to new homes, shampoo, flea medicine, brushes leashes, collars, dog igloos, carriers, vitamins, grooming supplies, blankets, and even needles to inject the meds to sick animals they save from death row.
Yes, it is great we got into OPRAH..but it takes funds to do the vital life saving work we do day and night.
Please give up two lattes, that extra chocolate bar, etc . and give from your heart and know that you are making a big difference in the life of a dog or cat that cannot do it without YOU!
Dear Operation Blankets of Love friend,


Operation Blankets of Love (OBOL) is the only animal welfare non-profit in the nation that works in unique ways to end pet homelessness.  OBOL is a lifeline for stray, sick, neglected and abused animals at shelters and  rescues, fosters and pets of the homeless. Our full range of support services and programs serves the rescue community in 10 California Counties plus out-of-state and international including organizations in Canada and Mexico.




OBOL is on constant standby regarding the displaced dogs and cats near the fires in the Los Angeles area. Upon receiving SOS calls   OBOL kicked into gear bringing emergency relief supplies and crates to a designated location.


Make a financial donation today and become an

Emergency Relief Partner!!






Recently OBOL got a call from OPRAH Magazine with a request to print a story about OBOL in the March 2013 issue.  The article is about de-cluttering your life and features one woman's makeover-she had boxes of blankets, towels and linens that were piled up in storage. OPRAH shared that you can "get rid of it for good" by donating to shelter pets in need of comfort.  OBOL was very excited to be included in this prestigious publication.  If you'd like to read the article online, please go to OPRAH MAGAZINE.

But OBOL does so much more than donate blankets and towels to homeless animals!

A typical day at OBOL includes getting S.O.S. text messages, e mails and phone calls day and night from animal rescue groups and shelters requesting emergency aid and comfort items. Each rescue group receives anywhere from $100 to over a $1,000 in supplies -free of chargeSome of the items they desperately need are blankets, comforters, pet beds, towels, food, treats, collars, crates and more.   


In addition, OBOL gets lots of calls from people that find stray dogs and cats. Having a network of over 500 rescue organization allows OBOL to broadcast adoption requests for these animals with great results.

YMCA teens hand deliver 1500 towels during their H.E.L.P. program


Recently, OBOL helped out:

  • Six rescue groups in one morning, reaching more than 400 animals that received food, treats, toys and blankets, senior diapers, wee pads and flea medication.
  • One shelter's washer broke down so OBOL drove 200 miles round trip to provide clean comfort items to the over 400 dogs and puppies that were lying and sleeping on hard, wet, cold cement floors and dozens of cats and kittens that were standing, unable to sleep, on wired cages. OBOL delivered several hundred comfort items so the animals would be warm, comfortable and feel safe and secure.
  • A group of teen volunteers from the KETCHUM Downtown's YMCA's Teen LEAD program hand-delivered 1500 towels and learned about animal rescue from the OBOL H.E.L.P. (Humane Education Learning Program).
  • A cat rescue group received food for over 200 feral cats.
  • A rescue that flew 35 "Death Row" dogs to New Hampshire for adoption needed blankets, towels and pet clothes, food packets, crates and carriers.
What other animal welfare helps so many animals in a month, hundreds of animal rescue groups and 35 shelters, fosters and pets of the homeless every month?  The answer is NONE!

We can't do this without you!


Homeless animals depend on you for help.  The only way OBOL can help them is with your financial support.  No one can put a price on saving the life of an animal but every dollar raised helps ensure that we can continue the business of saving the lives of homeless animals.
That is why we'd like to invite you to become a member of OBOL's
Circle of Compassion.  Donations from caring animal lovers like you over the past 4 years have allowed OBOL to help more than 12,000 homeless animals each year.  Dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens, rabbits, pot bellied pigs, horses, reptiles and wolves have been helped.
But it takes money to continue to do what we do. With your donation of $25 or more, you can become a member of OBOL's 
Circle of Compassion, joining others, like you, who wish to end animal homelessness forever.

Please give as much as you can today.  Your tax deductible gift of $25, $75 or $100 or whatever your budget allows makes a difference in the lives of homeless animals.


Please send your check payable to Operation Blankets of Love to:


11862 Balboa Blvd, PMB 187

Granada Hills, CA 9144

Yours for the pets,

Eileen Smulson

Founder and President


P.S. Imagine all the animals dumped into shelters-healthy, sick, young, old, pregnant, abused...all unloved and unvalued, cruelly thrown away like trash.  Please, will you answer their cries for help?  You are their only hope.
