MEET OUR HERO DONORS

These Heroes Wear Fur Coats!

At Red River Animal Emergency Hospital and Referral Center, we believe our donor pets are true heroes. Because they make regular blood donations, our veterinarians are able to save the lives of sick or injured cats and dogs in the Fargo-Moorhead region. Meet each of our canine and feline blood donors, and learn a little about them! We also track how much blood they have donated to our efforts. To learn more about how your pet can become a blood donor hero, read our Donor FAQs.
