At the GSPCA we provide an essential service to animals in need and the community. With the heightened risk of Covid-19 we are taking steps to reduce risk to our team and visitors by postponing all non-essential events until further advice is given.

Sadly this does means that all room hire, volunteer inductions, first aid courses, dog training, educational talks, educational visits, events run by the GSPCA are being postponed until further notice.

In relation to Coronavirus - Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) or Covid-19 the GSPCA is closely following the advice from the States of Guernsey - and taking proactive measures to reduce risk as far is reasonably practicable.

We are asking all visitors to the GSPCA to ensure the States of Guernsey advice is followed and we have hand washing and sanitising dispensers throughout the site to help with good hygiene practice. We ask if your visit is nonessential and can be postponed or can be resolved by calling 01481 257261 or emailing it would be very much appreciated as we have a team with a wide range of ages.

If anyone would like a refund or be put on a list for rescheduling any booked event or room hire please do get in touch.

We would also further advise any GSPCA team members with any concerns to please follow the States of Guernsey advice.



This is in order for us to comply with the requirements and demands for dealing with a potential international Coronavirus (Covid-19) Outbreak

1.            We require all local emergency contact details to be updated.

2.            Signed confirmation from a local resident (18yrs+) that in case of emergency they will be prepared to house your & care for your pet(s).

-              if either you are detained or unable to return to the island as scheduled

-              if we are forced to close the Shelter due to a change in local conditions.

We will of course strive to maintain normal operations looking after your pet(s) and our local wildlife throughout, however some things may be outside of our control.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are sure you understand the reasons why.

Thank you from the GSPCA team

As far as reasonably practicable other than mentioned previously normal operations at the GSPCA continue at present with heightened bio-security and we are asking all team members and visitors to follow the advice and public notices from the States of Guernsey.

The team are constantly reviewing the situation and we have been working with the States Vet.

As mentioned it is extremely important that all volunteers, staff and visitors use the Alcohol Surgical Hand Rubs provided and when washing hands you follow the signs and this advice

With hundreds of animals in our care and animals needing our help 24/7 we cannot do so much without your support.
