Imagine 2000 acres of black oak, blue oak, interior live oak, oracle oak, scrub oak, and valley oak trees in CA. Imagine this area being unscathed with natural deer trails through native California bunchgrasses. This area exists in Napa County, Ca. and is protected by the Quail Ridge Nature Conservancy.

The non-profit conservancy is a public benefit land trust “dedicated to wilderness preservation, the promotion of biological diversity, native habitat research, and education about environmental stewardship.”

If you are in the mood to get closer to nature and see an incredibly beautiful, preserved and timeless area in CA consider taking a guided walk through the Quail Ridge Reserve.

The mission of Operation: Blankets of Love is more than just collecting comfort items for sick, abused, and neglected homeless animals living in sanctuaries and shelters. It is about providing emergency first-response to shelters and sanctuaries, advocating for animal welfare, and promoting adoption to decrease animal homelessness.

Operation: Blankets of Love is a non-profit organization that collects, transports and distributes new and recycled comfort items to animal shelters, sanctuaries, foster groups and rescue groups. Some items that are needed year round include towels, blankets, pet treats, leashes, collars, pet toys, pet beds, crates and carriers.

Please help Operation: Blankets of Love by becoming a sponsor, donating or hosting a blanket drive. Your help will provide sick, victimized, and neglected animals with comfort until they can be adopted into good homes.
