Launched in 2007, Pet Blood Bank UK is the only charity that provides a canine blood bank service for all veterinary practitioners across the UK.
As part of our charitable remit, our aim is to advance animal health and welfare and to relieve suffering by providing quick and convenient access to blood.
Similar to the human blood service, dog owners kindly bring along their much loved canine companions to give blood at one of our many sessions across the country.
The blood is then taken to our state of the art processing centre in Loughborough where it is separated into red blood cells and plasma products, and then stored ready for despatch.
8,000 donors to date but we need more
