Please help towards Harleys life saving operation at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 10:43, 24th Jan, 2019 | 0

Harley the staffy has been at the GSPCA for just over a month looking for a home so spent her Christmas at the GSPCA.

This very sweet, loving dog has stolen the hearts of the staff and volunteers and indeed everyone she meets.

Earlier this week Harley visited Isabelle Vets for a spay check to ensure she was neutered.

All of Harleys health checks since her arrival showed a healthy staffy but when she went to the vets and was put under anesthetic they found a very angry, rapid growing growth an one of her legs.

GSPCA Launch Buy a Brick for the Proposed New Wildlife Hospital

Submitted by Steve on 09:57, 2nd Oct, 2018 | 0

If you have visited one of the GSPCA recent events or stalls you may well have learned of the newly launched ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign to help the GSPCA achieve the propose new Wildlife Hospital.

The GSPCA currently treat over 2,000 wild animals and birds each year, this number continues to increase and our existing facilities can’t cope with the increase in demand, and are not fit for purpose.  They desperately need a radical reorganisation and updating.

Lido’s operation a huge success thanks to all of the donations and his excellent care

Submitted by Steve on 10:33, 21st Sep, 2018 | 0

We are pleased to report the Lido the silver long haired main coon went for his life saving operation on Monday and is recovering well despite a much larger growth than expected.

The operation took place at Isabelle Vets who kindly undertook the surgery at a huge discount and thanks to the many amazing donations the £1500 was raised.

The surgery had to be much more extensive than first thought and with much of Lido’s right ear canal missing he is sadly now deaf on one side but without the operation his life was at great risk.
