Only a week since the GSPCA Amazon Wish List was launched and the Shelter staff and volunteers have been in awe of all of the gifts purchased for the animals and their care.

A HUGE thank you must go to Corporate Risk Solutions, staff from Menzies Aviation, staff from the Heritage Group and also Sandra and Ken James.

These individuals have helped the Shelter purchase additional scales which are vital for weighing animals on entry and during their stay as well as many animal toys and feed for the hundreds in the GSPCA care.

The GSPCA would like to announce that we have a new shower for the dogs at the Shelter.

Thanks to a small contribution from the Pedigree Adoption Drive earlier this year and local businesses supporting the Shelter with the supplies, staff at the GSPCA have constructed a lovely new shower where both the dogs in for boarding and those looking for new homes can be pampered and washed.

Roger a lovely old stray sick cat needs your help

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:17, 10th Oct, 2012 | 0

The GSPCA is asking for your help for this very friendly poorly cat.

Roger came into the Shelter as a very elderly sick stray earlier this month.  When he arrived he had multiple health problems and needed to be rushed to the vets where he was placed on a drip and under intensive care for some time.

The vets are now recommending he has a number of tests and an operation before the Animal Shelter can find him a good home.

Bunny Hop Hill makes for happy bunnies at the GSPCA Animal Shelter

Submitted by GSPCA on 08:14, 29th Aug, 2012 | 0

Earlier this year a very kind lady made a fantastic donation that has enabled us to improve the many rabbits lives whilst they are at the GSPCA Animal Shelter.

In the last year the Animal Shelter has had to help rehome dozens of rabbits with the Christmas period proving to be a time where the shelter has had more rabbits in our care than anyone could ever recall.

Thankfully many of these rabbits are now in loving caring homes but for those that are at the Shelter we are always looking to help improve their stay.
