Crosby, a seven-year-old springer spaniel from Edenbridge, Kent, has become Pet Blood Bank UK’s (PBB) 9,000th life-saving blood donor.

Launched in 2007, PBB is the only charity in the UK that provides a national canine blood bank for veterinary practitioners.

Thousands saved

Through donations, like Crosby’s, thousands of dogs’ lives have been saved, reinforcing the vital nature of the service.

Similar to the human blood service, dog owners kindly bring along their donor animals to give blood at one of the many collection sessions held across the country. Crosby attended a session with his owner Susie after she found out about PBB and the work it does.

She said: “I saw something on Facebook about PBB and it made me stop and think. I had never given it a second thought – that dogs might need blood – just like humans.

“If Crosby was ever in the situation where he needed a transfusion, I would be devastated if there was no blood available, so I wanted to bring him along to donate and help other dogs who need it.”


She added: “I’ve been telling everyone how proud I am of Crosby. I’d urge any owners who have dogs that meet the criteria to bring them along if they can because it can make such a difference.”

To become a lifesaving donor, dogs must:

  • have a good temperament
  • be aged between one and eight years old
  • weigh more than 25kg
  • not have travelled abroad
  • be up to date on all vaccinations
  • be fit and healthy
