Geelong Animal Referral Services (GARS) is a significant supporter of D2DR. Founded by two of Victoria’s top specialist surgeons, Dr Ricky Cashmore and Dr Adrian Wallace, GARS is driven by a vision to provide pets and pet owners with access to a state-of-the-art referral hospital and an expert specialist team. Their commitment to offering the best possible care aligns perfectly with the values and needs of the D2DR community.

GARS extends its commitment to animal care beyond its facility, with a dedicated greenspace area for patient exercise and client visits, emphasising the importance of a comforting and nurturing environment for recovery and interaction. As a privately-owned, proudly independent centre, GARS stands out for its dedication to high standards and personal touch.

The collaboration between D2DR and GARS is rooted in a shared goal: to provide exceptional care and outcomes for our dogs. Drs. Cashmore and Wallace have established strong connections with referring practices in the Barwon region and South West, which is instrumental in facilitating top-tier care. Their work, including a mobile surgical service, is a testament to their commitment to working closely with regional practices, fostering relationships that are crucial for optimal patient care.

At D2DR, we are immensely grateful for the support and expertise that GARS offers. Their involvement enhances the quality of life for our dachshunds, ensuring they receive the best possible care in times of need.
