Noah's Ark Animal Hospitals are proud to work with Blue Ridge Veterinary Blood Blank. Approximately every two to three months, some of our patients provide this service to the community. Each drive is held at one of our two locations. Please speak with a team member to obtain our next blood drive date.

Here are some questions you may have:

Why is it important to donate?

Healthy donors are needed to give blood for the many pets who need it.

A single donation can be used to save up to 4 lives, because the blood can be separated into two components, red blood cells and plasma.  The components are given to patients suffering from anemia, injury or disease.

How long will it take?

The blood collection process, an almost completely painless procedure, will take about 10-20 minutes. Your pet will not be sedated and only a small percentage of his or her blood will be donated.

How often can my pet donate?

Animals could donate blood without any problems as often as every 3 weeks. You will only be asked to come in every 4 or 5 weeks. Immediately after donations, the body starts to replace the blood that was given.


A healthy canine weighing 35 pounds or more and between the ages of 9 months and 7 ½ years. (A dog may remain in the program until they reach the age of 8 ½ years. Therefore, a dog must be no older than 7 ½ years to make the required one year commitment.)

Blood donors must have no history of serious diseases, and cannot be on medication.

A commitment to donate 9 times over the course of one year. (Dogs can safely donate as often as every three weeks.)

Donors must be brought to our facility or to a blood drive location. If you are not in our area, please contact us; we may be able to direct you to a nearby donation site.

Dogs must be maintained on heartworm preventive and must be current with their regular veterinarian's preventive health and vaccination schedule.

Please note that some medications may exclude your dog from the blood donor program.   

Please contact Blue Ridge for details prior to scheduling an appointment. For more information, please contact Blue Ridge Veterinary Blood Bank.
