Save a Life and Adopt a Pet to Love
Blood Drive at the ASC on Saturday
July 17, 2013
This Saturday, the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center (ASC) is partnering with OneBlood for the annual summer Me and My New Best Friend Blood Drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Everyone who donates blood at the ASC on Saturday will receive a Golden Paw voucher and a free t-shirt. Donors can use their Golden Paws to receive a waived adoption fee for any shelter pet through September 29, 2013. More than 100 animals are waiting at the ASC to shower you with unconditional love and loyalty. You're sure to find your new best friend!
To donate blood, you must be at least 17 years old, in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. With written consent from their parent/guardian, 16-year-olds who meet the other two requirements may also donate blood.
Florida Blood Services, Community Blood Centers of Florida and Florida's Blood Centers merged last year and formed OneBlood. If you have questions about donating blood or want more information about OneBlood, please call 877-7181 or visit www.oneblood.org.
The Animal Service Center, located adjacent to Tom Brown Park at 1125 Easterwood Drive, is operated and maintained by the City's Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department. For more information on the ASC and to view animals that are currently available for adoption, please visit Talgov.com/animals.
