  1. Wow, I had no idea that there are blood drives for dogs, just like there are for people. It’s amazing that your pet can be a hero and donate blood to save another person’s pet. I have a healthy greyhound who is very patient with groomers and vets. I wonder if he would be a good a candidate for a donor.
