Submitted by Steve on 15:43, 23rd Oct, 2020 | 0

Beckie Bailey GSPCA Animal Care Assistant tells us about Janice the ferret “Janice is a beautiful young ferret!“

“She will be looking for her forever home very shortly.”

“She came into us as a stray, covered in ticks and thin. She was very worried when she first arrived at the shelter, which of course is understandable.”

“However, her confidence has grown SO much! She loves a cuddle and would make a perfect companion for someone!”

“If you would like to find out more information about Janice, please email us admin@gspca.org.gg or phone us on 01481 257261.”

Beckie Bailey tells us about Jemima the bunny “Jemima has spent 873 days at the shelter looking for her forever home. “

“Jemima did not have the best start in life, thats why she was brought into the shelter.”

“She was paired up with a male rabbit for sometime, they were getting on swell. Randomly the male attacked her and bite her badly on her genital area. She was rushed to the vets and had surgery. Jemima had a slow but successful recovery. Jemima is scarred physically but also mentally, she is now scared of other rabbits.”
