Record breaking year for hedgehogs and Intensive Care Unit Appeal due to the large numbers

Submitted by Steve on 16:18, 6th Nov, 2020 | 0

Last year the GSPCA saw a record breaking 618 hedgehogs come through the doors and 2020 has broken that record number as we see poorly hedgehogs arriving in numbers.

With almost 2 months to go before the end of 2020 we have already helped an incredible 626 this year making it a record breaking number of hedgehogs

Despite lockdown the GSPCA has been incredibly busy and especially with 20 hedgehogs in since Monday the numbers are increasing every day with 129 currently in our care.

Towel appeal at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 12:51, 4th Sep, 2020 | 0

With over 300 animals in our care we are extremely busy at the GSPCA and are appealing for blankets and especially towels to help to provide them with bedding, to help with handling and drying off.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We use hundreds of towels and blankets every day at the GSPCA and our 4 laundry machines are on around the clock."

"As towels and blankets are used they can get torn by the animals or for those used in isolation or quarantine areas may have to be disposed of for medical reasons."
