Dr. Schwartz is also on the board of directors for HemoPet, which is the only blood bank for dogs on the west coast. This program, which was created by W. Jean Dodds, DVM, has many benefits for the pet parent community. The HemoPet team rescues greyhounds from the racetrack to provide universal donor blood, and then they are rehomed after two years of service. HemoPet is more than just a blood bank as it is also a non-profit with a goal to educate and help the pet owners of the Westside LA community and beyond.
The veterinary team at Overland Veterinary Clinic also works with other area rescue groups including:
The local Adopt and Shop is a local establishment in the Westside LA community where pet owners can shop for pet supplies and products, as well we adopt pets! Dr. Schwartz has an established friendship with the owner of Adopt and Shop and highly recommends the business for pet owners and potential pet owners.
