Submitted by Steve on 13:16, 4th Sep, 2020 | 0

Next Sunday (13th September) if you can help volunteer or have a vehicle you could help us transport goods we would love to hear from you.

We are planning to pack a number of vans in preparation this Friday ready to drive down for our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday from 7am.

If you could lend a van, especially a luton or large transit we would really appreciate it.

Every year it is a huge logistical challenge to transport the many tents, goods and animals from the GSPCA into St Peter Port.

Towel appeal at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 12:51, 4th Sep, 2020 | 0

With over 300 animals in our care we are extremely busy at the GSPCA and are appealing for blankets and especially towels to help to provide them with bedding, to help with handling and drying off.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We use hundreds of towels and blankets every day at the GSPCA and our 4 laundry machines are on around the clock."

"As towels and blankets are used they can get torn by the animals or for those used in isolation or quarantine areas may have to be disposed of for medical reasons."
