Appeal From Pet Blood Bank - Urgent

Blood supplies low after festive season. Help save lives by registering your dog as a donor today

 

Pet Blood Bank UK (PBB) is the first and only charity of its kind in the UK, calling on all large dog owners to consider registering their dog to give blood and help save lives.

 

Access to blood can make all the difference between life and death for a much loved family pet and last year alone, over 1,000 dogs needed a blood transfusion.

 

Similar to us, dogs have blood types too. For our canine companions, it’s either DEA 1.1 Negative or DEA 1.1 Positive, and research has shown that certain breeds are more likely to be Negative than others.

 

Flatcoated Retrievers are one of the few breeds that are more likely to be Negative.

 

After the busy festive season, stock levels of Negative are extremely low and we desperately need more lifesavers through the doors in 2015.

 

Can your dog help?

 

Donation sessions run across the country. Not only will your dog help save lives but they will also benefit from regular health checks, giving you reassurance across the year.

 

To register your dog today, please call 01509 232222 or via our website: www.petbloodbankuk.org

Thank you so much for helping us.

 

Every unit of blood helps save up to four other lives.

 

 

'Without Pet Blood Bank UK, our family would not be a family any more. We owe so much to them for helping save Buster aka ‘our world’s’ life.’
