Group needs blanket donations for shelter dogs

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A blanket drive is scheduled for Nov. 9 to help dogs in shelters and rescue facilities.

Operation Blankets of Love is asking people to drop off their unwanted blankets and towels from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day at the Petco on Gosford Road. The groups says the blankets help keep the dogs warm during winter.

Donations or other types of pet supplies are also welcome, the group says.
