Mission Statement

Hemopet's first blood bank was established in 1991 by Dr. W. Jean Dodds in Irvine, California. Dr. Dodds has devoted her life as a veterinarian to the study of hematology and blood-banking . Hemopet's work contributes in significant ways to the health and welfare not only of the retired greyhounds we rescue and place for adoption, but supports life-saving procedures performed by veterinarians around the world by providing blood products shipped out on a daily basis.


We save the lives of the greyhounds who would otherwise be destroyed, and their donations of blood (and its various components) save other lives in turn. After a strictly limited time serving as donors, the greyhounds are placed with carefully screened families who will provide a permanent happy and healthy home. In 2001, Hemopet moved to our Garden Grove facility in order to accommodate the large demand for both life-saving blood products and donor adoptions.
