Blood Donation

Animal Blood Donation

Animal Blood DonationSick people aren’t the only ones who need blood and blood donation to recover from illness and injury. So too, do Man’s best friends. There’s a terrible shortage of animal blood right now. We urgently need owners of healthy cats and dogs to consider bringing their animals in to become potential blood donors. “True animal lovers will make the effort to help because I can guarantee you that their generosity will lead to saved lives!” Dr. Marla Lichtenberger, Founder of Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals (MECA).

Donations may be made every 2 to 3 months, and each pet receives one free health exam and full blood work-up per year. In addition, there is a $25 hospital credit given for each donation.
