Blood Donor Dogs – Queen City Greyhounds

Queen City Greyhounds has a special partnership with Grady Veterinary Hospital, in Cincinnati, to supply them with three retired racing greyhounds every six months.  Several hounds are blood tested and three – who are universal donors – are selected to become the next ‘QCG Donor Dogs’.

During the time they are at Grady’s, the staff members play with them, take them for walks at a nearby park, and generally, spoil them.  At the end of their time as donor dogs, both Grady and QCG actively work to find the retired racers’ forever families.

Our current donor dogs are listed below. Keep an eye on our “Available Dogs” page for when these greyt hounds become available and let us know if you’re interested!

Nearly 80% of greyhounds are universal blood donors!  Like people, these special hounds are able to give their blood to any canine in need.
