About Us Saving Lives Since 1993

About Our Blood Bank

Why Choose Us?

Our blood bank is unique. We are proud to be the largest canine volunteer blood bank in the nation. Our canine donors are never sedated or forced to donate blood. Other blood banks have dogs that live on the premise donate blood. Our donors live in homes and come from a wide variety of backgrounds and breeds; from rescue dogs to show winners, service dogs, athletes to couch potatoes.

As the largest all-canine donor blood bank in the nation, you will be part of an organization consisting entirely of volunteer donors. We only accept blood from volunteer donor dogs because we believe one animal’s quality of life should not be enhanced at the expense of another. The original blood bank, EVBB, was started in Severna Park in the early 1990s. BRVA carried on that torch in early 2011, thus ensuring access to life-saving blood, sourced humanely. We are constantly recruiting new donors to be able to expand our ability to supply local animal hospitals, emergency centers, cancer treatment centers, and university teaching hospitals. We also help multiple non-profit groups and educate students and community groups throughout the year as well.
