Doggie Donors

Washington County, Oregon Sheriff's K9 Unit has volunteered to give the gift of life to fellow canines.

On Wednesday August 10, 2005 the dogs from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office K-9 program will start the process to donate canine blood to the Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital. Members of the Sheriff’s Office K-9 team became aware of the recent need for blood at the Dove Lewis Blood Bank and they volunteered to donate blood from the dogs used by the Sheriff’s Office.

...Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital has one of the biggest volunteer-based canine blood donor programs in America. Almost 300 dogs donate critically needed blood throughout the year. Their donations save lives at Dove Lewis and other veterinary clinics and hospitals by providing approximately 1,000 transfusions each year.

For additional information about the Dove Lewis blood donor program please contact Tiffini Mueller at 503.535.3391 x40.

The Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital is located at 1984 NW Pettygrove, Portland.
