Bailey, a four-year-old Shiba Inu, was brought to her family veterinarian on January 12, 2014 after being hit by a car. Her family veterinarian recommended she be transferred to ACCES’ 24-hour critical care and emergency facility for care.
Joni is a beautiful tan, brown and white kitty with amazing blue eyes. She is young and a very friendly girl who loves sleeping on the vent blowing hot are in the bathroom. She believes that her beauty makes her exceptionally special (and she is sooo beautiful!) She has joined the donor program because her dads think that it is the right thing to do and so does she.
Nila, aka Her Highness, is a smokey grey tabby with the biggest, roundest golden eyes. Her name means Moon in honor of her big grey head. Nila enjoys only the best cat kibble. None of that filthy human food, well, except for Parmesan cheese and tuna, sweet glorious tuna. She also loves sleeping, preferably on the warm cable box or on top of a warm human. Nila is quiet, calm, and cuddly. No mischief or misbehavior, she's too good for that. (She thinks VERY highly of herself!) Nila has mastered the art of communicating her needs to her humans.
Russ, aka, Mischief on Legs is a gorgeous pale grey tabby, and he knows it. His favorite food is bread crust. No Joke. Russ spends his free time trying to figure out how to open cat-proofed cabinets to get in and eat the bread. In fact, he will open and slam drawers at 2:00 am to protest the locked cabinets keeping him away from the bread. He gets along with absolutely everyone (except the grumpy other cat Nila who hates everyone) and loves to play and just spend time hanging around people or dogs, which he thinks he is.
Scout, aka Fluff-Butt, looks like a black Golden Retriever, but it is suspected that he is half Border Collie. This is due in part to his intense focus abilities (usually on squirrels). They are like none other than a border can achieve; also because of his complete failure at fetch.
Jameson is a Blue Great Dane and is 160 lbs of happiness. He loves a good game of chase at the dog park, rough housing with his sister, and meeting new people to drool on. When he is not busy developing new and exotic napping positions, he enjoys spending time researching how many tennis balls he can fit in his mouth at one time (three is apparently the max).
January is National Blood Donor Month. While most people are aware of the need for human blood transfusions, many people are UNAWARE of the need for transfusions in dogs and cats. Transfusions are needed for many of the same reasons that people need transfusions. Trauma, surgical blood loss, cancer and many other disease processes could cause a cat or a dog (or a person) to require a blood transfusion. The ACCES Blood bank, as the only animal blood bank in Seattle, provides blood products to both ACCES hospitals (Seattle and Renton) as well as many of the other veterinary hospitals in the Greater Puget Sound Area (and beyond!).
Pookah, aka Monster (and others that are not suitable for public consumption) is an adorable brown tabby cat that likes to lay around the house and rule the roost. His favorite food is dried chicken and his favorite activity is showing everybody in the house who is boss by attacking them to play. Pookah donates blood to generate some good karma - he's gotta do something good so that his people keep him around.
Lady, aka Sissy, is a pretty Doberman who has too much energy at one moment then ready to sleep all day the next! She loves to chase rabbits and must try all the food she comes across to determine what her favorite food might be. True to Doberman form, Lady does a good job of protecting her mom. She, unfortunately, is a little bit of a counter surfer, probably because she hasn't realized yet that she is a dog. Lady is a rescue dog, so she donates blood to give back and to help others.
