Giving blood is one of the most important things people can do to help save a life, but did you know blood donors are needed in the animal world, too?
We wouldn’t be able to fulfill our mission without the invaluable contributions of our dog and cat donors. But as the pet population continues to grow, so does the number of pets who require blood transfusions. The need is great. Your pet’s donation can ultimately provide the gift of life.
When pets undergo surgery or are suffering from trauma, auto-immune diseases, heat stroke or other illnesses, they may require blood transfusions, just as humans do. Our blood banks for pets are dedicated to providing a safe and plentiful blood supply to animals in need.
Watch our video on blood donation at the North Seattle blood bank to see how blood is drawn, separated into packed red blood cells and plasma, and stored. It’s a quick process that has saved many pets’ lives.

They didn’t just save kitties’ lives, they helped me keep my dog Kiara alive for a few more months, too.”
