Share Your Love by Giving Blood
July 17, 2014
Tallahassee Animal Services Hosts Blood Drive on Saturday - This Saturday, July 19, Tallahassee Animal Services is partnering with OneBlood for a summer blood drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Everyone who donates blood at the Animal Service Center (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 30, 2014. Enjoy unconditional love and loyalty from one of the 100 animals waiting at the ASC to share it with you. More than 50 people donated blood at the drive in April, and more than 20 animals found loving homes the same day.
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. Potential adopters must be 18 years old.
If you have questions about donating blood or would like more information about OneBlood, please call 877-7181 or visit www.oneblood.org.
