Are you in the festive mood and looking to help those in need?

We have lots of great gifts and items on our Amazon Wish List that would help the 500+ animals in our care at the GSPCA.

One item we have been trailing are perspex clear sheets on some of the cats pens with great success.  Each cat pen has an outside section and we have found that hanging the perspex panels on the mesh the cats still have a lovely view and plenty of fresh air while keeping the worst of the weather out.

Submitted by Steve on 15:28, 10th Dec, 2017 | 0

This December the Work to Benefit team and St Andrews Floral Group are helping the GSPCA improve the Memorial Garden on site.

For nearly 145 years the GSPCA has helped and continues to help thousands of islanders each year with the death of their pet.

On site at the GSPCA we have a Memorial Garden area which we have been working to improve thanks to many kind donations and support.

We are at a stage where we are looking to purchase plants and shrubs to help landscape the area and make it a pleasant and comfortable place to sit and reflect past pets and loved ones.
