We had a fantastic response and within days handed out dozens of patterns and since received hundreds of mice that have been hand made and now entertain the cats and kittens we have at the Shelter.

Submitted by GSPCA on 14:50, 3rd May, 2012 | 0

This Sunday gone volunteers led by Corrine  Connoly organised a sponsored dog walk which was also led by Corinne’s dog Sidney.

The route which was just under 5 miles went from Grandes Roques up to Pembroke Bay.  Despite the weather over 20 volunteers and participants took part with over a dozen dogs that also helped with stewarding and taking part in the walk.

The weather with high winds and wet at times proved chilly and cold so many of the dogs wore coats to keep them warm and dry as well as their handlers with Sidney sporting a very nice flying jacket.

During March Curves Guernsey at Admiral Park collected food to help the Women’s Refuge and the GSPCA.

The female only gym asked members to donate non-perishable food and donations for both the Women's Refuge and the Animal Shelter

Emma Trousdale Welfare and Education Officer popped down to collect the food from Becky Chandler and the team last week and couldn't believe it.

Emma said 'I couldn't believe how much they collected.'  'There was over a tonne of animal food which meant the van was packed top to bottom.'

As the New Year came and the Wildlife Unit filling with animals nearly every day, the hot water demand has been at full tilt for cleaning the many cages and feed bowls.

The boilers in this building being over 20 years old decided that they could cope no more and failed in January leaving the staff boiling kettles whilst we tried to figure out what to do.
