Dogs and Cats Emergency & Specialty

Blood Donor Program

Every day hundreds of dogs are in need of blood transfusions. Just like people, some dogs lose large amounts of blood due to surgery/trauma or are in need of large amounts of blood due to auto-immune diseases/other illnesses. As such, canine blood donation has become more imperative than ever.

However, in order to help every pet and family in need of a blood transfusion, we rely on the invaluable contributions of our canine donors. As the pet population continues to grow, so does the number of pets who require blood transfusions.


What are the requirements to join the blood donor program?

To help us meet the demand, we're are looking for healthy dogs that are:

  • 1.5 - 8 years old

  • Over 50 pounds

  • No current health issues

  • Spayed or neutered

  • Up-to-date vaccines, heartworm, and flea & tick prevention

  • No prior history of blood transfusions or pregnancy

What are the benefits?

In addition to potentially saving many dogs' lives, you will also receive the following benefits by joining our program:

  • 10% off DCES services while in program

  • Free annual physical exam

  • Free annual screening for infectious diseases and to monitor organ function

  • A Chewy Treat box as a token of appreciation for your pet's enrollment and on every anniversary
