Unleash Your Pet’s Inner Hero: They Can Help Save Lives by Donating Blood to Our Animal Blood Bank

Welcome to the Animal Blood Bank of Arkansas

Our animal blood bank is a specialized facility that collects, stores, and distributes blood and blood products for animals in need. Just like humans, animals sometimes require blood transfusions to treat a variety of medical conditions, including trauma, surgery, anemia, and cancer.

Donating blood to an animal blood bank is a simple and rewarding process that can help save the lives of needy animals. If you have a healthy and eligible pet, consider becoming a blood donor today. Your pet could be a hero and help save the life of another furry friend in need.
