GSPCA Advice As High Winds Continue

Submitted by Steve on 11:51, 10th Feb, 2020 | 0

Bad weather and extreme winds means it is difficult for hedgehogs and wild birds to feed normally, and young seal pups can easily be separated from their mothers.

Below is some advice on what you can do if you find an injured animal, but please remember we have a 24 hour emergency service and our number is 01481 257261.

If possible, contain the animal before calling - see our capture and boxing advice below.

Submitted by Steve on 17:42, 4th Feb, 2020 | 0

At the GSPCA we help 100’s of dogs and their owners every year from strays to microchipping, welfare calls to those locked in hot cars.  We are asked to help rehome 40 to 50 dogs each year which come in for a variety of reasons, many through no fault but due to changes in circumstances.

Last year we rehomed the now named Rummie to a lovely new family. The new owners of Rummie a Jack Russell Terrier had adopted another JRT called Bundi and we have recently received this update from the lovely new owners –

Priscilla loving her new home

Submitted by Steve on 17:23, 4th Feb, 2020 | 0

At the GSPCA we love to hear how the animals that we have rehomed are doing in their new homes.

Recently got some lovely pictures of Priscilla a beautiful long haired black and white cat who first arrived as a stray at the GSPCA this time last year.

Sadly no owner was found, she had no microchip and we discovered a number of ailments which needed a long period of veterinary care to get her feeling well enough to be available for rehoming.
