Did you know…

  • each unit of donated blood can help save up to three critically ill dogs?
  • every qualified donor receives a full blood check, which includes a chemistry screen, CBC, heartworm test and a tick borne disease test?
  • once your dog donates blood for the first time, they are eligible to receive blood, free of charge, equal to the number of units donated in their lifetime should they ever need a transfusion?
