A man coming up with a blood bank for his best friend is a true humane act but neglecting the donor is so inhumane and puts the whole idea in jeopardy. We all live in a world, where injuries can happen anytime same for our pets. In a blink of a second, you might be walking your canine and the other minute you are seeking an urgent intervention, requiring a blood transfusion to save the life of your best friend. So, dog blood banks are quite important and serve the all noble function of saving a life. So, when it happens that we don’t treat right the donors, it’s obvious we are missing the point here. Whether we siphon blood from volunteer dogs or we have secluded a team of 150 dogs in squalor, where we rush and draw the pints when needed, we ought to take care of not contravening the animal rights.
The Support of Family Dicks
The important mention here is needed. We think projects like Family Dicks are insanely crucial for the idea of keeping our animal friends in shape. The mentioned website is all about fantasy thing in gay scenery. Family relations of step-fathers and step-sons are very big taboo thing, but fantasy aspect of such is making it such a great website. Take a look yourself.
But Is It Fact Or Fiction
When news of neglect at the dog blood banks came up in Austin, where one of the blood banks was held, the owner Shane Altizer came to its defense – of course, it’s expected. His take was that the photos displayed were taken in 2015, before he acquired the facility and therefore, it was just a case of misrepresented facts. It didn’t end there; the situation became more interesting after the visit by Anne Hale, a veterinarian and a former CEO of the nation’s first commercial animal blood bank. Her report at first was very positive but she retracted a bit later, saying the facility looked like it was cleaned moments before they visited. So calls by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were right that there is a failure to adhere to the best practices in some of this animal blood banks and this facility, in particular, was violating the rights of canine donors. It had donors captive and the conditions there were not welcoming.
This field to do with animal blood bank is not effectively regulated which has given an opportunity for abuse of animal rights. On top of it, there exist no federal standards in this field. Of all the US States, it’s only California that has regulations governing animal blood banks which also requires an annual inspection. Though even in California there are many cases of inhumane conditions in animal blood banks. This is a big challenge to a country which continues to see the growth of pets and emergency of pet care services almost on a daily basis. Much need to be done as there could be a case of commercial interests taking over and above animal rights.
A Case For Greyhounds
Most dog blood banks result to taking greyhounds captive where they are reared for blood in conditions, which have come to be described as wanting. Greyhounds are preferred for their universal blood types. Some animal blood banks though have changed their tact for the better and no longer keep greyhounds in closed colonies. Penn Animal Blood Bank, which is run by the University of Pennsylvania for example, has resulted to doggie bloodmobile, where dogs give blood and go. This was after the criticism 25 years ago by greyhound rescue groups. They have come to accept this method as the best option and they encourage other blood donor organizations to try it out.
A Call For Action
There are, therefore, continued calls to adopt human-like methods of collecting blood for use in animal transfusion, methods like bloodmobile, which makes a happier donor being championed. A watchdog society like the National Greyhound Adoption Program is on the frontline to champion against the captive style of animal blood donors. David Wolf, the Director, has on several occasions taken the government of California to task and explained why they encourage this behavior; probably, his effort will bear fruits soon.
Pet blood bank is a noble cause and should be supported, but when it comes to abuse of the very donors like keeping them captive and in deplorable conditions, the behavior should be discouraged and condemned in the strongest term possible.
