When running, greyhounds spend 75% of their time in the air

Posted on: 07th Aug 2023


We were once again proud to welcome Pet Blood Bank on site for another donation day, for much needed universal blood supplies. Most greyhounds have this sought after type and 1 unit of donated greyhound blood can save the lives of up to 4 other breeds - not all heroes wear capes, some wear collars💖

In addition to our own kennel heroes, we were joined by homed hounds April and Dan, and super superhero Casper, who gave his 10th blood donation😍. We were also very fortunate to be supported by friend and trainer Kim Billingham, who bought along 5 of her own retireds for consideration for donating.

Volunteers Helen, Angie, Amanda and Lynda kept the refreshments going, completed paperwork and escorted donating hounds into PBB's amazing sterile mobile unit. A fantastic total of 8 units was donated, possibly saving up to 32 lives💖

We will be hosting Pet Blood Bank again in a few month's time (date tbc). If you would like your gorgeous grey to donate, they will receive the very best medical care, a free blood screening, a bandana and loads of fuss and attention. Your dog will need to be in excess of 25kg, fully vaccinated, have not travelled abroad recently and be of a calm character. If you would like further details, please do not hesitate to contact us or check out Pet Blood Bank's website.

A massive thank you to all our heroes and their humans for supporting us, in supporting Pet Blood Bank🐾
