Winter is Coming: Someone Needs a Blankie!

2011Dec10Haley-0081

Idea: Donate a Blanket to a Homeless Dog

Animal shelters do not purchase “comfort items” such as blankets or towels for dogs in their care – not even those used during surgery – and must depend on community donations.

Operation Blankets of Love is based in the Los Angeles area, but serves shelters and other rescue groups as far away as Canada, often bringing as many as 500 items at a time. There are 50 drop-off locations in Southern California.

According to their site: “Studies determined that shelter animals given blankets and comforters relax, feel happy, safe, secure and warm. Being comfortable in a more home-like setting increases their chances of being adopted.”
