Become an exclusive Build Partner

The Build Partner programme is designed to meet the building costs associated with our new £1.3 million multi-purpose animal welfare building. The building is to replace five existing structures that have become unusable with age.

Our new building incorporates a welfare cattery, quarantine and isolation facilities, a secure transfer location while also providing logistical and organisational spaces and facilities for the day to day running of the GSPCA.

Improve our seal pup facilities

Seal facilities need an update at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in Guernsey

In the last two years we have helped rescue, rehabilitate and release 4 seals back into local waters.

Although the current facilities we have at the GSPCA are suitable we are looking to dramatically improve and update them.

This would include renovating the intake room, improved drainage, filtration system and enlarging the pools we currently have for seal pups at the GSPCA Animal Shelter.

The cost to tile the room out and carry out the work would cost approximately be £20,000.

New Washing facilities

Washing machine needed for the GSPCA Animal Shelter in Guernsey

Recently we received a wonderful donation to help pay for a new 20kg commercial washer.  

We would like to add to our washing and drying facilities.  The machines cost in the region of £4000-5000 each.

Due to the 200-300 animals we have at the Shelter there is a lot of bedding and towels to be washed and the machine we have is often on for 12 hours a day 7 days a week.  If you can help we would love to hear from you.

 

Update the flooring in the GSPCA Kennels

The GSPCA are looking at improving and renewing the flooring in the kennels at the Shelter.

To carry out this work throughout the kennels it has been estimated to cost £15,000 for the 41 kennels which would include the walk ways we have at the Shelter

 

Tile the Wildlife and Hedgehog Floors

To help improve the facilities we have for our hedgehogs and wildlife we would like to tile the floors and part of the walls in four areas of our wildlife unit.

The cost for the tile and accessories would be approximately be £2000 and the labour would be additional to this.

 

Refit and Enlarge the Reception Area at the GSPCA

The GSPCA reception area is extremely small and hasn't changed much since it was built over 60 years ago. We now have planning to enlarge it to have a larger shop area, disabled access, a small office to talk privately to those that are upset or bereaved and larger reception desk.

The approximate cost for this project would be £35,000 and would enable more visitors and ways to raise funds for the Shelter.

 

GSPCA Ambulance & Rescue Vehicle

At the Shelter we operate an animal rescue service 24 hours 7 days a week.  To provide this we have a GSPCA Ambulance thanks to the Itex Rotary Walk 2013 which is used by the Animal Collection Staff and Volunteer Night Wardens.  Ideally we would like to ensure there is a second ambulance to help provide this service such as a minivan which would be ideal for the tight lanes we often have to drive through.

 

Memorial Garden

We have an area where people come and sit to remember their pets and also scatter their ashes. 

This is currently being improved thanks to the Sure Community Foundation.

This is being made into a lovely area and we would like to add benches and a Summer Cabin to give those remembering their pets a safe and dry place to sit.

Costs

Summer Cabin - £2500

Board/Benches - £1500

Total – £4000

We would like to thank the Sure Community Foundation Grant for their help with a grant of £1000 towards the work of this project and Pet Tributes for their donation of £75.

 

Open A Charity Shop / Pop Up Charity Shop

We are currently looking for premises to set up a charity shop.  With increases costs a charity shop would help bring income to support the Animal Welfare work we do every day to help care for the animals of Guernsey.

To run the GSPCA we have to raise £2000 a day to help rescue, rehabilitate, reunite strays, rehome and release wildlife back to the wild over 3,000 animals a year.

If you have a premises and would be happy for the GSPCA to occupy it for a short or long period of time as a charity shop, please get in touch with the GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne.

10 Year Redevelopment Plans

The GSPCA were founded in 1873 and have been on our current site since 1929.

Many of our buildings date back as far as the 1950s and we have in place a 10 year redevelopment plan and need your support.

With the new animal welfare laws in Guernsey and the age of the buildings, we need to ensure that we are leading an example on how animals should be kept now and in the future.

We have already started the first phase of a 10 year plan to rebuild 5 areas of the GSPCA in a single two storey building which will cost £1,300,000.  This is the biggest rebuild we have ever undertaken and to join our exclusive Build Partner scheme please click here.

Complete Fitting of our New Quarantine and Isolation Unit

The cost to fit out and complete this area which includes multiple kennels, animal pens, safety porches and the utilities to care for them would be £65,567.

Refurbishing our Hospital Animal Intake Area

At the GSPCA our Hospital department is in desperate need or refurbishment.  It is made up of multiple rooms and although we are looking for funding to help repair and redecorate this area our long term wish is to rebuild this department.
