Blood Transfusion Service team wraps up presents

Thanks to your support, we put together a Christmas present for the wonderful dogs and cats who donate their blood to save the lives of hundreds of critically ill animals.

Each blood donor dog received a Beco toy, a roll of poo bags (for the owner!), and some treats from Oliv’s and Wainwrights. Blood donor cats received a Beco toy as well as treats from Oliv’s and Harrington. Pet owners were also given a special ACT keyring, sticker and Christmas card from the Blood Transfusion Service team.

By donating to the RVC Animal Care Trust, we are able to support the RVC Blood Transfusion Service with vital equipment and facilities so that blood donors and the recipients of blood receive the best possible care and treatment. Furthermore, your support helps us to give some extra special attention to the incredible donors whose blood saves so many lives. Thank you for your support.
