The GVH family would like to extend a big welcome to our new vet Adele Lloyd.

Adele comes from the UK where she completed an engineering degree. However, after meeting her Australian husband, she moved to Sydney to achieve her dream of qualifying as a veterinarian. She has 3 rescue dogs, and loves camping and 4 wheel driving.

She also loves to travel having recently spent 4 weeks in Uganda with orphan chimps on the Jane Goodall Institute’s Ngamba Island and at the USPCA (Ugandan version of our RSPCA) helping with the street dogs and cats. Jane Goodall is the English scientist who did ground breaking research on chimpanzee behaviour in Tanzania in the 1960’s, living with a group of the animals for several years.
During her time in Uganda Adele also helped in a local school teaching kids about dental hygiene.

Since her arrival at GVH Adele has fired up the GVH staff about helping out the USPCA- the Ugandan Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The organisation operates under extremely challenging conditions, and has a desperate need for the most basic of equipment and drugs- things that we in Sydney are privileged to take for granted. Adele has organised a charity dinner, attended by many staff members, all proceeds of which will be going to the USPCA.

In addition, the staff have organised a collection among themselves, making contributions from their own finances to help get things moving along.

If any of our clients would like to make a contribution, just let one of our receptionists know and we will put you in touch with Adele.

Adele has a special interest in animal behaviour but is enjoying the diversity of Gladesville Vet Hospital, which is helping to develop her skills in medicine and surgery.

GVH Donates much needed medical supplies for animal burns victims in Victoria

In addition to our USPCA efforts, GVH vet nurses Jo and Jess have also collected donations from staff and sent a package of requested medical supplies to our colleagues in fire ravaged Victoria. As the animal victims will have ongoing needs for quite some time to come, we have also placed a Donations tin in our reception specifically for them.
