Life Saving Is in Our Blood Saving Lives Since 1993

Dogs that join our donor program are lifesavers across the country. All of our canine blood donors live happily at home with their families! We take great pride in making it a positive visit for both dogs and their owners.

Why have your dog donate blood? Just like humans, dogs require blood for a wide variety of injuries, surgeries, or illnesses. Without willing volunteers, many beloved pets would not have a chance to be treated and reunited with their owners. 

Just like humans depend on the generous donations of blood donors from volunteer programs, so does the veterinary industry. As more people get furry companions, the pet population increases and so does the need for blood transfusions. When pets require a surgical procedure or are getting treated for trauma, heat strokes, auto-immune diseases, or any other illnesses, blood transfusions are a necessity.

Without a K9 Volunteer Blood Donor, Harley Might Not Have Been Able to Go Home

In spring of 2018, "Harley" sustained an unfortunate vehicle accident. She was thrown out of her owner’s vehicle. The extent of her injuries were not known. Initially, her owners were not sure if she was going to make it. They had driven to western Loudoun County to visit friends and were unfamiliar with the area. A good Samaritan saw that they were in need and offered to help them navigate to the nearest ER Vet. Upon triage by Blue Ridge Vets, her prognosis was guarded. She had a broken upper palette, lost a lot of blood, and suffered a great bit of damage to her leg. Harley’s vitals were stable, but she was not in great spirits. It wasn't until her doggy sister Bella was walked past her bed that she really perked up. This was a good sign! Harley was in BRVA's care for two weeks. She received a blood transfusion and surgery to repair the damage to her mouth. After 3 months of physical therapy and laser treatment, it was determined it was best for her mobility to amputate her leg. Learning about the process of dog blood banking after Harley received a lifesaving transfusion, her family knew they had to help! Bella her sister came to donate with us the following year, and once Harley was completely healed and mobile, she became a donor too. Their entire family tells everyone they meet that dogs can give blood and save lives too. Without willing donor families like the ones that give so selflessly in our program, Harley might have never come home.

Coming soon, more lifesaving stories from the recipients of our blood products!
