The Animal Lovers Group of Bangkok, Thailand, has established a blood bank to assist the city's estimated 300,000 stray dogs.
"The group plans a blood drive on March 9 at a Buddhist temple. It is storing the blood in refrigerators to supply two private animal hospitals when needed. "
Okay, now this made me curious. Are there different blood types in dogs?
From the article:
'He said that unlike humans, dogs have a common blood type, making all dogs potential "universal donors.'' '
Heh, I guess Slashdot's not the only place where people don't actually bother to read the articles before commenting :)
