Wilk's Doggie Donor Bill clears first Assembly Committee
SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, announced today that Senate Bill 202 (SB 202), his "Doggie Donor Bill," has passed the Assembly Judiciary Committee. SB 202 allows for an improved, more humane method of collecting blood donations from animals.

"Pets across California run the risk of no available blood when they are in crisis. Our shortage of animal blood has resulted in many people losing a pet simply because blood was not available when the animal was in need," states Senator Wilk. "This is something that can be remedied and should be. My bill will go a long way toward relieving the shortage, while at the same time providing for a much more humane way to collect blood from animals."

Veterinarians rely on products provided by animal blood banks to perform transfusions and other life-saving operations in their practices; however, California's restrictive regulatory framework has limited available options in the state resulting in only two commercially licensed blood banks leaving California pet owners and veterinarians with a limited supply of blood. In addition, animals in these 'closed-colony' facilities are caged for years at a time in these facilities to draw blood.
