We were really excited to find out yesterday that we are winners of the Host Venue Award in the 2013 Heart of Pet Blood Bank Awards! This a new category for venues that provide facilities for Pet Blood Bank to use for canine donation sessions. 387 Vets were recognised for actively encouraging registration of new doggy donors in practice and through local media, for offering familiarisation sessions for dogs before they attend their first donor session, and for our support of World Blood Donor Day 2012. Winning this award is particularly special to us as our vet Hamish’s own dog needed blood transfusions, using canine donations from Pet Blood Bank UK. It’s a charity very close to our hearts.
