We place animal welfare at the heart of our charitable remit and we have set exceptionally high standards with regards to wellbeing. The health and wellbeing of our donors is paramount.

Before the session, our team will give you a call to learn more about your dog including their likes and dislikes. This allows us to check that your canine companion is suitable and we can then tailor the donation experience to them.

We have a fully qualified veterinary team who carry out the donation process to ensure that we can look after you and your lifesaver in the best way possible. We understand that some dogs may not like the vets and because of this, our team will observe your dog throughout the process to ensure that they're enjoying the day.

Each donor receives a full health check at their donation appointment and an Annual Blood Health Profile on an annual basis. We provide a full haematology and biochemistry profile which underline our commitment to animal welfare. We want to not only ensure that donors are healthy, but also help you build up a good picture of your dog's blood profile. This can help to pick up on important changes in their health over the years.

Jo brought her dog Layla to donate at Alfreton Park Veterinary Hospital and sent us the following feedback.

"We would like to thank Lara the vet. Layla came over to give blood but Lara found a tumour on her under carriage. She has now had it removed and today we got the good news that it was benign. A massive thank you."  

Whilst most dogs are microchipped, if for some reason, your dog isn't, we will microchip them free of charge.

After your first donation session, we'll give you a call to find out how you enjoyed the session.
