About Us

Alice’s Bio:
Alice Parr, LVT, has over 30 years of veterinary blood banking and critical care experience. She started out in 1979 as a Licensed Veterinary Technician in the Emergency and Critical Care Unit at Michigan State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The blood donor program quickly became her passion and she worked to grow the program to over 60 canine and 15 feline volunteers. To pursue blood banking full time she left the Michigan State University in 2008 and began working at a local blood bank managing the feline donor colony of over 100 cats. The expanding need for feline blood products has brought about the creation of Nine Lives Blood Services, PLLC.
