Help Guernsey Hedgehogs in what is a record year in numbers arriving at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 11:44, 26th Nov, 2019 | 0

Many think that Guernsey hedgehogs like their cousins in the UK hibernate but sadly this is a rare occurrence for the majority of our spikey friends as they require a temperature of 5c or below for their body clock to switch to this Winter behaviour.

With the mild climate we have in the Channel Islands it is rare for a day to go by that we don’t rescue of help a hedgehog 365 days a year.

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 10:57, 10th Nov, 2016 | 0

We are hugely grateful to a Co-op Helping Hands grant which helped enable us to also fit a new floor and new large runs in our ferret room at the GSPCA.

The floors were in desperate need of repair and we have been hoping to improve our facilities for our ferrets for many years.

Each year we help dozens of stray and unwanted ferrets and currently have 4 lovely ferrets in need of homes.

Two extremely sweet ferrets are Gizmo and Ghost (as pictured). They came in to as as their owners could sadly no longer care for them.

A huge thank you to GFF Flooring and Co-op Helping Hands - 2 fantastic local companies helping with new floors at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 20:01, 20th Jun, 2016 | 0

We are hugely grateful to GFF Flooring who donated and fitted flooring to our Hospital area last week.

Also a huge thanks to a Co-op Helping Hands grant which helped enable us to also fit last week a new floor in the ferret room.

Both floors were in desperate need due to the age and regular use they see 24/7.

With the lovely weather many of the animals went into outside cages and aviaries, while others went into other sections of the GSPCA so the work could be carried out.
