In January of 2011, Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates purchased Eastern Veterinary Blood Bank. We had been a long time donation site for the program and we wanted to be able to provide so much more.
We are a volunteer canine blood bank where:
- Our donors are not sedated, muzzled, or forced into donations.
- Donor dogs are not housed on premises or confined.
- Our donor owners belong to a variety of groups ( rescues, champion dog shows, doggy day care and training facilities, and some are blood donors themselves.)
We provide life saving blood products to veterinary hospitals across the United States. We are always looking for new donors as our furry friends can only donate part of their life. In order to meet the needs, our donors commit to donating with us every 5-7 weeks at one of our donation sites. Without our committed donor owners and their canines, we would not be able to save as many lives as we have this past year. Every donation can save up to 2-4 other lives. We have a team that loves what they do and that makes for a lot of fun for everyone involved. This website has been set up as an appreciation for our donors and their owners. It also provides basic info on our program. Feel free to share stories and pictures with us. . This website is dedicated to them! You can also find us on Facebook, Blue Ridge Veterinary Blood Bank and on the web at ww.dogsdonateblood.com.
Location: Our home site is located in Purcellville,VA. We have almost 30 remote donation sites throughout the Virginia and Maryland area.
