At Mexico’s first veterinary blood bank in sight-seeing city Merida on southern peninsula Yucatan, Director Martinez collects blood from kind-hearted pets in preparation to save their ailing peers.

The service has been running for a year, yet already has become known across Mexico.

His recent success has made Martinez more determined than ever to highlight the culture of donation from pets to protect human kinds’ dearest companions.
