Did you know that your dog can be a superhero? A blood donor superhero! DoveLewis has an animal blood bank, which is the largest volunteer-based animal blood bank in the PNW. Donor dogs must be between 1-6 years of age, weigh at least 55lbs, be current on vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention, gentle disposition, able to make a 2-year commitment and donate four times per year.
Dog donors receive complimentary blood work and exams by a doctor, a complimentary emergency visit should one be necessary, donor parties and more.
We are joining with DoveLewis and the American Red Cross to host our first-ever dual blood drive. Join us the weekend of November 16-17 for the Best Friends Blood Drive one day for humans, the next day for eligible dogs! Collections will all be done at BFPC.
If you are interested in having your dog donate, we will be hosting a mandatory “Blood Typing Event” on Sunday, October 13th. Your dog will be typed by DoveLewis to see if they are an eligible candidate. Please call the clinic at 503-614-9061 if you are interested in signing up for the typing.
If you are interested in being a human donor, visit the American Red Cross app to get signed up! Just search out November 16th and choose a time slot between 9 and 3.
