Help Save a Life!

We are currently looking for healthy dogs and cats to become MVA blood donors. Our blood bank functions just like a human one and without donors there is no blood for sick dogs and cats. Your pet’s blood could be used to save an animal from such situations as accidents/injuries, clotting disorders, anemia, surgery, poisons/parasites, or a variety of other situations.

Donor Requirements

  • Dogs must weigh at least 50lbs and Cats must weigh at least 10lbs
  • Both must be in good body condition and free of infectious diseases
  • Must be between 1-8 years in age
  • Must pass an in-person evaluation
  • No heart murmur
  • Healthy with a friendly disposition, be happy to meet people, and be easy to restrain
  • Up to date on vaccines and on monthly flea/tick/heartworm prevention
  • Cats must be indoor only
  • Must be able to bring pet in when needed (not more frequently than every 8 weeks)

Incentives

  • Free full annual exam
  • Free annual bloodwork (Full CBC/Chemistry, Infectious Disease Screening)
  • MVA will cover the cost of a blood product in the future should your pet ever need one
  • The knowledge to know that you helped a pet in need!
