Submitted by Steve on 14:33, 29th Jul, 2020 | 0

The first pet cat in the UK has been confirmed to have the Coronavirus this week.  Although this is the first confirmed case of an animal infection with the Coronavirus strain in the UK, there is no evidence to suggest that the animal was involved in transmission of the disease to its owners or that pets or other domestic animals are able to transmit the virus to people.

Submitted by Steve on 16:28, 22nd May, 2020 | 0

With the current challenges we all need cheering up and what better way than sharing an update on an animal happily adopted from the GSPCA.

Hamish was adopted during lock down and here is an update from his owner -

“Just a few photos to show how Hamish has settled in, he has claimed our bedroom window sill as his early morning lookout post, and has a teddy to cuddle into in his bed next to the radiator in our bedroom.

He sits on the sofa between us in the evening watching tv or just under the sofa. He had a play last night with catnip, and seems very happy.

Submitted by Steve on 16:08, 14th May, 2020 | 0

With the current challenges we all need cheering up and what better way than sharing an update on an animal happily adopted from the GSPCA.

Priscilla was adopted at the end of 2019 and just before the lock down we had this update rom her owner -

“She has been with us for nearly four months now and has really settled in. She’s found her favourite spots (on the back of the sofa in the sun or in the bay window being nosey) and we’ve learnt her cheeky habits (her slightly unladylike scavenging makes us to keep a very tidy kitchen).

GSPCA Adoption and Rehoming all moved online and over the phone - PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE SHELTER AT THIS TIME

Submitted by Steve on 14:25, 27th Mar, 2020 | 0

Due to Coronavirus the GSPCA is only operating essential services.  All of our rehoming is now online, telephone and through the post as we are avoiding visitors to the Shelter at all costs in line with advice from the States of Guernsey.

With animals still arriving and being rescued, unwanted, stray and abandoned the GSPCA have to look at ways we can help rehome animals in our care.

At the GSPCA finding an animal a new home is a very special moment as we wave them off on their new adventure.

When we hear how they are doing it is even more heart warming and earlier this year we found a very special cat a home called Charlie.

Charlie's new owner contacted us recently with an update and said “I am pleased to confirm that Charlie has settled in with us really quickly.”

“She has become a valued family member.”

Priscilla loving her new home

At the GSPCA we love to hear how the animals that we have rehomed are doing in their new homes.

Recently got some lovely pictures of Priscilla a beautiful long haired black and white cat who first arrived as a stray at the GSPCA this time last year.

Sadly no owner was found, she had no microchip and we discovered a number of ailments which needed a long period of veterinary care to get her feeling well enough to be available for rehoming.

Dexter the young cat really loving life in his new home

Submitted by Steve on 13:37, 4th Dec, 2019 | 0

You may have seen our two recent posts on older cats desperately in need of homes and how Spud and Dexter are settling well in their forever homes.

This is Dexter one of our rare younger recent residents that as you can see is loving his wonderful new home.

It is great that we see very few kittens in need or suffering, but this does mean we don’t often have many young cats in need of homes, but we certainly have many older cats needing that special someone.

You may have just seen the story on Spud a 15 year old cat now happy in his forever home. We recently had another update from a cat called Bandit.

Anna Paint Senior Animal care Assistant said “Bandit was an 11year old cat that when he arrived needed a bit of dental work.”

“Older cats very often need very special homes which are few and far to find but after 6 months of care we found this lovely cat just the right home.”

Finding the older cats new homes in Guernsey is often a struggle and no more so than for the lovely Spud.

It took over 7 months for us to find this loving wonderful cat his forever home which we are delighted to say he is doing very well in.

Anna Paint Senior Animal care Assistant said “Spud was with us for 7 months before he went to his forever home and we are delighted to say he is doing very well and we are getting lots of updates as his new Dad is one of our wonderful volunteers.”
