(Brad Smulson, OBOL works with Eileen Smulson, and Aida Mayo,
MAYO  Communications at the world's largest Pet Expo in  Orange County.

When Eileen Smulson rescued a dog from the animal shelter, which was lost wondering on the highway, little did she know it would change her life in two ways. First, recognizing that by having a blanket under a dog or cat, they keep warm and are more appealing for adoption at animal shelters. And secondly, Smulson found by collecting blankets there was a huge need. That need is some 60 animal rescue shelters in Southern California. Roll forward two years, and thousands of blankets and animal supplies later, OPERATION BLANKETS OF LOVE, saves 2,000 animals per month. 
“MAYO Communications was one of the first to announce our passion to provide aid and comfort to homeless animals,” said Founder Eileen Smulson, Operation Blankets of Love.  “I saved Ginger and she became my inspiration for OBOL.” Smulson, who never had a dog before, said she didn’t know what to do. 
“We fell in love with each other, and now we save and comfort 2,000 dogs and cats in shelters each month,” she explained. Smulson says OBOL needs a transportation van, clean recycled and new blankets, towels, pet beds, collars, leashes, dog clothes, food and water bowls, grooming supplies, crates carriers and dog igloos. OBOL also needs storage facilities. The nonprofit 501c is a partner service provider for The American Red Cross. 
MAYO Communications is providing national publicity for OBOL activities, 
including bringing animals to grade school classrooms to teach humane education 
to promoting OBOL’s participation in animal events like the large Pet Expo at the 
Orange County fairgrounds (
(bldg. #10 booth #1044/1045). (Friday – Sunday), April 20-22, 2012.
