It has been amazing to see such incredible ways supporters of the GSPCA and animals have been inventing all sorts of ways to raise funds for the animals at the GSPCA and the 1000’s we help every year during the Covid-19 pandemic.

9 year old Jake Hardill during lockdown has been kept busy not just with his home schooling but also making home made nest boxes for wild birds which he has been selling to raise funds for the GSPCA.

It is amazing the ways supporters of the GSPCA raise funds to help the 1000’s of animals that come through our care  every year.

Just before lockdown we had an amazing donation from Carla Munday who had been selling goods through facebook to help raise the much needed funds to help run the GSPCA.

We asked Carla to tell us all about it and here is what she said -

“In 2019 I attended one of your volunteer induction evening. I then attended the cattery on a couple occasions to help with feeding and cleaning there pens out.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to both Sure Community Foundation and Helen Holmes for their amazing donations of iphones to help ensure we have operational lines for our 24/7 service.

We have been running our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal since the start of the crisis, but there are always key pieces of equipment that we require to ensure we can operate and having recently had an issue with one of our emergency phones which failed we launched an appeal for a new iphone and cannot thank the Sure Community Foundation and Helen Holmes who donated a handset each.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to both Waitrose stores in Guernsey for their amazing support and to help with our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal .

Shortly after releasing the desperate need for support at the end of March the team got in touch to see how they could help.

A few days later we received not only a fantastic rage of fresh fruit and veg for the animals, but we also had a box of goodies to keep the team going at the GSPCA.

Since then each week we have had donations from both stores which has helped feed the many animals in our care.

Huge thanks to Petplan Charitable Trust helping towards our GSPCA Urgent Kennel Appeal and dogs like Scruffy

Submitted by Steve on 17:13, 26th Jun, 2018 | 0

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to the Petplan Charitable Trust.

As a result of our recent Urgent Kennel Appeal the Petplan Charitable Trust have donated £5,000 to this must needed and urgent work.

Over the last two months much needed work on the kennel floors has taken place, but this uncovered major drain and structural issues.

Our kennels which were built in 2005 had a vinyl flooring put down which had sadly got to a point recently where new flooring was desperately needed which has been taking place since mid May.

Over the last few months the very generous Waitrose Rohais staff and store have been helping with feed for Olivia the loggerhead turtle.

Both the store and the staff have been helping donate the squid that she seems to really enjoy from the Waitrose Rohais fresh fish counter.

On Friday last week as a way of a thank you two of the Waitrose staff popped along to the GSPCA at feeding time and had the unique opportunity to feed Olivia in her enclosure at the GSPCA.
