In the Czech Republic, as in many other countries, veterinarians have long faced the same problem: a shortage of dog blood, necessary in case of urgent transfusions. To address the issue, a group of volunteers founded Red Paw (Červená tlapka), the country's first such registry. Since its May launch, they have already registered more than 400 potential dog donors.
