Thank you to everyone who has donated! I increased the goal to $1,000 after meeting our goal of $500 sooner than expected. But I'd love to donate as much as possible so more animals can receive the items they need and also very much deserve. Every day I'll post about OBOL's programs so you know the many ways they provide for the animals and their 'humans'.

Homeless People’s Pets Outreach Program
Pets offer the homeless joy, a sense of family, and emotional comfort. OBOL is one of the few organizations that assist struggling pet owners by helping their pets. OBOL is committed to the human-pet bond and the benefits that bond brings.
OBOL donates nutritious food, blankets, pet beds, leashes, collars,
harnesses, toys, pet clothes and other critical supplies to keep pets of the homeless happy and healthy, thus allowing them to stay with their loving, human companions, rather than being relinquished to overpopulated shelters with high euthanasia rates.
No homeless person should have their pets taken away because they can’t afford the necessary supplies for their pets’ survival. No pets should go hungry, be uncomfortable or suffer. That is what OBOL is successfully
working to alleviate, reaching out on a weekly basis to neighborhoods with high homelessness rates. We deliver quality pet food for dogs and cats to ensure they receive proper nutrition. The leashes and collars are safety items to ensure that pets can be safely contained in high-traffic areas.
