VICTORY! Hellhole Blood Bank to Close! The Pet Blood Bank in Cherokee, Texas, will close its doors and transfer the dogs into adoption programs following PETA’s exposé. PETA celebrates the release of these dear dogs who began life abused at a race track and wound up in a filthy blood bank. PETA will now work hard to get regulations passed to ensure all blood for emergency transfusions come from real donors, and not from imprisoned, miserable dogs.
