Submitted by Steve on 16:07, 29th Mar, 2019 | 0

146 years ago when the GSPCA was first founded road traffic incidents were something that know one would have understood and comprehended but in the fast world we now live sadly here in Guernsey they are all too common place.

In fact just last night another fatality occurred of a young cat which the GSPCA rushed too but sadly it was too late and nothing could be done.

Over recent years the GSPCA have seen anywhere between 150 and 300 cats killed on the roads of Guernsey every year and sadly far many death is very swift often through no fault of the driver.

In January 2017 Captain Jack arrived at the GSPCA covered in paint with bald patches and sores.

After cleaning him up we discovered he had very sensitive skin and with a unique character so needed a special home.

After nearly 18 months in our care this Summer we found that forever home and recently got an update on how happy he is.

His new owners said “Here are some photos of Captain Jack, as we know he stayed with you for a long time and you might miss him.”

“Looks like he settled well.”

“He is a really lovely cat!”

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.
