Hemopet’s non-profit animal blood bank and greyhound rescue/adoption program was established in 1986. Hemopet accepts retired racing greyhounds from several states who then periodically donate life saving blood.
The blood components and supplies are provided to veterinary clinics for transfusions. After arriving and during their transition period at Hemopet, our greyhounds donate a pediatric unit for up to 10-12 months. Hemopet’s Pet Life-Line Division then places them up for adoption as family companions or into foster care for their adoption.
