Pet's Blood Donors Platform
Social Program. Donation Platform for Animals.
Here, we share our lives.
Dogs can become donors if they are aged between 2 and 7 years and weigh more than 25 kg.
Cats can become donors if they are aged between 2 and 6 years and weigh more than 4.5 kg.
Each animal undergoes a thorough health examination before donating blood. If any health issues are detected, they won't be accepted as donors.
A blood transfusion might be necessary for an animal that has been poisoned, infected, or involved in an accident. The time to find a donor is limited, and can be a matter of life and death.
Pet Blood Bank has established an animal donation platform to simplify the process of saving lives. On this platform, courageous cats and dogs, alongside their brave owners, can register as donors, while those in need of blood can submit the requests. This platform connects donors with those in need, becoming a powerful tool for saving lives.
To become a superhero, simply fill in the form.

How does the Donation Platform work?
Next, we will outline the 5 steps that await you on your journey toward donation:
Fill in the form
Tell us a bit about yourself and your pet. Are you in search of a donor, or do you wish to become one?
Wait for a notification
Your form will be promptly processed, and you will receive a notification through a convenient messenger as soon as blood is needed or a suitable donor is found for your animal. We are committed to finding a donor that perfectly matches all of your requirements, including geographical location.
Confirm your willingness to help
If your animal is ready to lend a paw, confirm your willingness and get the contact of a friend in need. It's important to note that such donations are voluntary, and all arrangements are made directly between the involved parties. Communication and coordination are also the responsibility of the parties involved.
Visit the clinic
The stars aligned – You have an address and a scheduled time. To donate blood, please visit the clinic's veterinarian, where you will organize a meeting with the other party. At the clinic your pet will be thoroughly examined, and blood will be collected under the supervision of professional staff.
Let us know how you're doing!
Thanks to your superhero! Please share how your pet feels after the procedure and how you're doing. It's crucial for us to understand your whole experience, as this feedback helps us make each procedure more pleasant.
The procedure will not harm your pet if it is healthy and meets the age and weight criteria. Our doctors will conduct a thorough examination and determine animal’s blood type before proceeding with the blood donation.
Why is donation important for animals?

A blood donation platform can offer happy future to countless animals, including pets and strays, providing them with a chance for recovery and a healthy future. Join us in making the world a kinder place. Crucial to note, donation is completely free of charge. All communication and coordination take place directly between the involved parties, and the responsibility for this communication lies with those interacting.

Instructions and recommendations for blood transfusion

Here, we share our lives.
Blood type
Blood group is the individual antigenic composition of red blood cells. They are species-specific, consisting of carbohydrates or proteins attached to the surface of red blood cells. Antigens are required to distinguish your own cells from foreign ones. Determining the blood type of donors and recipients can significantly reduce the waiting time for a blood transfusion procedure.
To determine the blood type of cats and dogs, we use special rapid tests. These tests are user-friendly, requiring only 0.5 ml of blood and taking just 15 minutes to complete.
Blood types of cats
Cats have three blood types: A, B, and AB. According to available statistics, approximately 75-95% of all cats have type A, around 25-5% - type B, and less than 1% have type AB. Cats possess innate antibodies, which is why transfusions from other animals, even once, are strongly discouraged and can potentially result in dangerous complications, including the risk of death.

So, why is it essential to check compatibility in each situation?

In addition to the well-known erythrocyte antigens (A, B, AB), cats have a distinct antigen known as the MIK antigen (similar to Rh factor in humans). Currently, laboratory diagnosis cannot confirm whether the blood is MIK-positive or MIK-negative. This is where compatibility testing becomes crucial and should always be performed.

If your pet has previously received a blood transfusion, it is crucial to inform your vet. In such cases, a mandatory step is to conduct a blood group and compatibility test, even if you plan to use blood from the same donor as before.
Blood types of dogs
For today, 12 variants of blood types have been discovered and documented in dogs (DEA 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, Kai-1, Kai-2, and Dal). Unlike cats, dogs do not possess innate antibodies. This means that in emergency cases, they can receive a one-time transfusion of compatible blood without the need for prior blood type determination.
