Winter Is Coming For Dogs In Need
• Local program helps dogs stay warm during cold winter nights.
As As the weather cools, we can crank up the heat, but dogs in shelters do not have that luxury. Operation Blankets of Love offers blankets to dogs who have to spend the winter in cold shelters all over Los Angeles County. PVNet Academy for STEM located at the Promenade on the Peninsula, is running a collection drive for blankets again.
Please drop off donation at PVNet Academy for STEMÂ
2-6pm, between now and January 26th
Address: 550 Deep Valley Dr., Ste 229 , 90274 CA.
They are on the 2nd level right above the ice skating rink, near Pollo Inka..
Operation Blankets of Love is not picky about donations but washed or clean blankets would be preferred. Dog beds are also accepted because most dogs sleep on hard cement for months at a time.
Operation Blankets of Love is non-profit and relies on donations to keep the program running.
Eileen Smulson is the founder of Operation Blankets of Love and has passionately run the program for 10 years. She emphasized that not only will dogs be warmer this winter, but blankets have been proven to improve the dog’s overall mood & mental health, which in turn improves their physical health.
‘’As soon as an animal has a comfort item they look happier and more relaxed, which makes the dogs more adoptable and saves lives.’’
Operation Blankets of Love also helps homeless dogs who are out on the streets by providing warmth and comfort through blankets.
