It’s common knowledge that service dogs are incredibly helpful in the lives of those with physical disabilities.
We in North Hollywood are animal lovers. Just take a walk through the North Hollywood Park, drop your pooch off at NoHo Farmer's Market Doggie Daycare, and adopt a fur baby at our Rockin' Food Truck Festivals. Yeah, the NoHo Arts District loves the poochies.
So dog, cat, lizard and all NoHo animal lovers, meet Operation Blankets of LOVE, anon-profit organziation providing comfort to homeless animals in shelters and rescue groups. They are like the American Red Cross of the animal rescue world because everyday is a disaster for a homeless animal.
One of the problems is that the City animal shelters have no budget for something as simple and necessary as bedding. So Operation Blankets of LOVE is coming to the rescue with a BLANKET DRIVE. Let's help keep homeless dogs and cats warm and off the hard cement floor. Arthritic dogs especially need that old blanket of yours. They urgently need clean, recycled and new blankets, comforters, large towels and pet beds. Studies show that shelter animals given a blanket immediately relax, feel happy, safe and warm, which increases their chances of being adopted. For the animals that are not adopted, they will be killed. It's estimated that 56% of animals in shelters end up being killed. Won't you give them comfort in their last days?
Come on North Hollywood, let's clean out our closets and donate our blankets.
