Why Your Dog Should Register
From time to time neighborhood veterinarians need whole blood on short notice to treat neighborhood dogs that are injured or need surgery. By registering, your dog is offering to donate blood should the need arise.
A local dog blood donor registry is a small step to support the veterinarians who provide the personalized care, jobs, and convenience that makes our community more vibrant.
Which Dogs Should Register
Any healthy dog between 1 and 7 years old and over 40 pounds who has never had a blood transfusion and might be able to get to a nearby veterinarian on a moment's notice.
What to Expect
When you are contacted the veterinarian will ask if your dog is available. Expect to spend about an hour while your dog donates and then you can go home. There is no cost to you and no one makes money from your dog's generosity. Donating blood poses very little little risk for a healthy dog and may save your neighbor's dog.
Sign Up Now!
Pick your region at the top of this page and use the "Sign Up" link on the left. A secure form will ask for the dog's name and ways to contact you. You can leave special instructions like "No calls between 11PM and 6AM". This information will be encrypted, stored and made available to local veterinarians for free. The information will only be used when blood is needed and to periodically check that the contact information is current. You can also use the "Donor Sign-in" link to edit or delete your dog's registration at any time.
