Can you help Monkey the diabetic cat - APPEAL for a poorly cat

Submitted by Steve on 00:02, 31st Jul, 2015 | 0

At the end of May a lovely 9 year old cat came into the GSPCA after her owner could no longer care for her.

Sadly 'Monkey' as she is called has diabetes and needs a specialist diet and injections twice a day.

We have seen many diabetic cats at the GSPCA over the years and the most famous of all is Mr Chips a big silver tabby who is doing very well in his home as we still get regular updates from them.

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said "We have to monitor Monkey regularly and ensure she has a special food, but she is adorable"


Stray cat Rubis isn't over the worst yet and needs your help

Submitted by Steve on 09:33, 25th Mar, 2015 | 0

Last month Rubis an entire black and white stray cat was handed into the GSPCA.

Full of cuts and bites this very affectionate cat that had no chip or collar came in with a number of injuries.

Inline with the 2012 legislation every stray animal including cats have to be held for 21 days whilst we try and find their owner.

Sadly with no microchip, collar or anyone coming forward for Rubis he hasn't been claimed.

During his time at the Shelter we have found that Rubis with his lovely friendly nature and his wounds now healed has other health issues.

A way to make more of your 2012 donations - Did you know about Tax Relief for Guernsey Registered Charities?

Submitted by GSPCA on 10:06, 17th Jan, 2013 | 0

In September 2009 the States of Guernsey agreed to change the way in which tax relief is given in respect of donations to Guernsey Registered Charities (GRC).

Previously income tax relief was only available to individuals who made payments under an irrevocable Deed of Covenant in favour of a Guernsey Registered Charity for a period in excess of 3 years; no relief was available to Guernsey resident individuals in respect of noncovenanted donations to Guernsey charities.

In summary, the new system works as follows:
