Touching Lives, Warming Hearts

Through Human & Animal Interactions

Penn Vet Canine Blood Bank

KPETS coordinates the University of Pennsylvania Canine Blood Mobile that comes quarterly to That Fish Place/That Pet Place 237 Centerville Rd., Lancaster, PA.

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?

See dates and schedule…

has a good temperament and is a willing volunteer
weighs at least 55
is between 1 and 6 years of age
