Blood Donor Program

Pet Specialists of Monterey is looking for heroic dogs and cats to participate in its Blood Donor Program and help save the lives of fellow furry friends. To ensure pets in the Monterey Peninsula area have life-saving blood products on hand, Pet Specialists of Monterey has founded a Blood Donor Program to provide for the regular collection and storage of blood to better support veterinary hospitals and pets. Participating pets will have access to the Program’s bank for a reduced fee, and without the delivery delays and potential shortages faced by national blood banks. Click here for more information about this program.
