Hi,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum,
Visit a nearest Government or private tertiary care centre , consult the medical officer there who will guide you to the respective department after enrolling your name for the donation where you give your complete personal details and address , keep your relatives informed about it and to inform the respective hospital if you fall ill or meet an end then the hospital staff will come and execute the process of extraction.

Get an Organ Donor card from your doctor's surgery fill it in and carry it with you , but always tell your parents or partner so if the worst does happen they are fully aware that this is what you wished for after your death and it will also not come as a shock to them .

You can contact the United Network for Organ Sharing (find them on the Internet) abbreviated UNOS. They can advise you on the proper way to donate. Also make sure your family or spouse are aware of your wishes. You can fill out a living will which states your wishes upon your death. This can be obtained at any hospital or your private doctors office.

MY dog killed my sweet angel, best friend cat. I found Sootie a couple of hours after it happened, it could not have been more than 3 hours at most that I seen him last. I am just sick about it, but I could deal with it better if i knew he died an immediate death and did not suffer. He was already stiff, when I found him. He had a large hole on hisright side, up near his armpit, about the size of a nickel and another smaller hole on the opposite side around the same location. The blood that was under him, it wasnt a whole lot, more so when I moved him, was maroon in color. His skin was all torn up, around the wounds, but I m hoping that occured after death. Do you think his heart was punctured? Is that a very quick death? Sootie was about a 10 lbd cat at most and my dog isa boxer shephard mix, to give you an idea of how he could bite my cat around the chest. Since everyone is concerned about what is being done with my dog, here it is. he is only alittle over 1, he was abused and we adopted him as a rescue. He has never shown any aggression towards humans or other dogs. He is very affectionate and loving.Yes, I have to overcome some resentment and feeling sick about it, but it does come down to, they are animals, and we can not hold them accountable as we would a human.They avt on instinct, alot of the time. I love all animals, and this is something I must learn to forgive but never forget. He will no longer be allowed to be upstairs around the children or cats. He has a brother dog, that he is very close to, a llarge lab. Together when inside they will stay in a 8 foot by 6 foot kennel, furnished with water, beds, and toys. We purchased a large 10 foot by 20 foot run for them outside. He will only be allowed free roam when me or my husband are outside watching him. I will also give him a long runner line to be when supervised.
