I met Eileen and Brad Smulson about 2 years ago because of my work with Animal Rescue here in Northern Baja MX (CA). They started this wonderful non-profit when Eileen, who worked in the corporate world, visited a animal shelter and saw the many dogs shivering and afraid as they laid on cold metal in their cages. That was the genesis and from their Eileen quit her job and began her work to collect and distribute as many blankets, blankets and beds to the hundreds of thousand dogs in need. They in turn give selflessly to other rescues like our little entire volunteer organization, VIVA, here in San Felipe. They have donated many blankets, towels, toys and food to help us help other animals in need. I think this non-profit should be one selected by your organization for consideration. We are working on establishing our own 5013-C here so that we too might be able to apply for help. The need is tremendous and the drain on our limited finances constant. Thank You for your consideration of "Operation Blankets of Love"

I first heard of Operation Blankets of Love through a co-worker who was collecting blankets at the time. Being the proud parent of a shelter cat that I adopted over four years ago, I immediately gathered whatever I could from storage and friends, washed them all up, and brought them into work for my friend to donate to the cause. I have even contacted Eileen via email and she responded very quickly and was very nice.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

knowing how badly shelters are in need and seeing how such a kindhearted gesture as blankets for those poor shelter animals could truly mean the world to them.

This organization is amazing. It donates blankets to animals in the pound. The pounds have no budget for any type of floor coverings. The animals are put on cold cemet floors. They are already scared, and some sick. The little warmth these blankets bring can turn a cold scare animal into one that can be rehomed. Please dontat your old balnkets, washclothes, and sheets to this organiztion. It makes a big difference to these poor animals.
