San Juan City, Philippines - In an unprecedented collaboration between the San Juan City Government and JCI Manila, the first-ever canine blood bank has been established, offering a lifeline to pet owners in need. This groundbreaking initiative aims to provide a reliable source of canine blood, ensuring that veterinary clinics and hospitals have access to this vital resource.

The visionary partnership, led by Mayor Francis Zamora and Councilor Don Allado, has joined forces with JCI Manila, a renowned organization committed to community service. Together, they have spearheaded the establishment of the first canine blood bank in the country.

Among the key figures behind this initiative are JCI Manila President Eric Ke, EVP Calel Gosingtian, Secretary General Chris Liao, SP Director Mark Pizzaro, Chairman Ron Jaworski, and San Juan City Veterinary Doc Jerry Alcantara. Working closely together, they have facilitated the allocation of a dedicated space within the San Juan City Hall to house the canine blood bank.


The canine blood bank, which will be fully operational in the near future, aims to address the urgent need for a reliable source of canine blood for transfusions. This will significantly enhance the capabilities of veterinary clinics and hospitals in providing life-saving treatments to dogs in critical conditions.

JCI Manila has played a crucial role in the establishment of the canine blood bank. They have generously donated a blood bank freezer, ensuring the proper storage of canine blood donations. Additionally, JCI Manila has also supplied the necessary consumables required for the treatment and care of the animals.

The establishment of the first-ever canine blood bank in the Philippines marks a monumental milestone for animal welfare in the country. Through the collaborative efforts of the San Juan City Government and JCI Manila, pet owners in the region will now have access to a reliable source of canine blood, significantly increasing the chances of saving and extending the lives of their beloved pets.
