Earlier this month the GSPCA hosted a special birthday tour for one lucky young lady.

GSPCA staff Beckie Smith gave a special tour to a young lady called Meg and her friends who was celebrating her 7th birthday.

All had a wonderful behind the scenes tour of the GSPCA and the lucky birthday girl got to get up and close with a few of the animals in our care.

After their tours the group enjoyed a party on site at the GSPCA and all received a pack of goodies and a thank you certificate for visiting.

Beckie Smith GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said "Birthday girl Meg and her friends had a great time and it was wonderful to help Meg celebrate her special day at the GSPCA."

"As the group were so good they were allowed to have a little look from behind one way glass of Sami the seal pup."

"We really enjoy the birthday tours and it is so nice to see how much Meg and her friends enjoyed their afternoon."

At the GSPCA we have seen a fantastic response to our recent Birthday and Special occasion guided tours and have already got many booked in over the coming weeks.

From young to old we now offer a unique experience for a loved one, family member or friend to see behind the scenes at the GSPCA.

Molly's mother Meg said "Thank you very much for a fantastic birthday, Molly had a great time and felt extremely special getting to be involved with the animals."

"All the girls really enjoyed it and some  want their next party there."

"Some of the mums have said what a great idea for a party so hopefully you may get a lot more bookings."

"Thank you very much again."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "At the GSPCA we have unique birthday and special guided tours and they have been proving hugely popular."

"We have also teamed up with Island Mums and provide card holders a discount on this wonderful experience."

"Our special tours include a behind the scenes tour of the GSPCA in St Andrews with a focus on the special person who may be celebrating a birthday, anniversary or even a retirement gift."

"Each tour is unique as the animals in our care vary from one week to the next and previous one's have helped feed baby birds to Olivia the turtle."

"You can even hire our events room and we have a great caterer who can help us help you provide the full birthday party for you child or loved one."

"Please do get in touch if you would like to know more and to see previous tours please visit - http://www.gspca.org.gg/search/node/birthday%20tours."

"During half term we have guided tours each day at the GSPCA between the 29th and 3rd June and for details please give us a call on 257261 or visit our website."
