Please sponsor Charlotte and Joe running the Butterfield Half Marathon in aid of the rabbits at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 14:42, 12th Aug, 2020 | 0

We are so incredibly grateful to all those that raise funds for the many animals in our care.

Here are a few words from one of our team members at the GSPCA who is running to help with new rabbit accommodation at the GSPCA.

Charlotte Perry said “At the GSPCA we haven't been able to focus on replacing our hutches, with the issues surrounding Covid-19 being a priority.”

“However, with the increase of rabbits, it means we need more hutches to accommodate the influx.”

Record breaking numbers of hedgehogs rescued in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 11:47, 12th Aug, 2020 | 0

Last year the GSPCA saw a record breaking 618 hedgehogs come through the doors and 2020 is set to be even busier.

Between the 1st January 2019 and 12th August 2019 we saw 330 hedgehogs which was a record in our 147 year history and this year between the same period we have already had 399 hedgehogs arrive meaning it looks like another record breaking year for hedgehog numbers.

Despite lockdown the GSPCA has been incredibly busy and especially with wild animals.

The Guernsey Arts Commission are proud to announce that Arts Sunday this year will be going ahead on the revised date of 9th August, that’s this Sunday between 10am and 4pm.
