Supporting the DoveLewis Blood Bank


animal blood bankSomewhere in America, there is a dog or a cat who needs a blood transfusion. That's right! Animals need blood just like humans do in an emergency.

Whether to recover from surgery, toxicity, or trauma, dogs and cats at DoveLewis and around the country get help from the DoveLewis Blood Bank. Our volunteer teams of dogs and cats donate enough blood for 700+ transfusions every year. But this program is not possible without your support!
