DORA'S STORY - Dora the explorer home safe and sound

Submitted by Steve on 18:01, 25th Jan, 2022 | 0

On Thursday 13th January 2022 Dora a medium sized cross breed dog managed to escape and decided to go for bit of a walk about.

Dora was originally lost near Amherst School.

From there she went on bit of an adventure and evaded being caught for nearly two weeks.

The GSPCA had many reports in many Parishes and we know she seemed to enjoy her time in St Andrews and Castel where we believe she was for much of the time she was missing.

We were pretty confident she was between Talbot Valley and Beaucamps for much of the last few days she was stray.

Oreo a lucky guillemot rescued after being caught in human waste and record numbers of wildlife helped by GSPCA in 2021

Submitted by Steve on 12:55, 14th Jan, 2022 | 0

Early today the GSPCA had a call about a seabird tangled in fishing line.

The bird was discovered by mother Emma Lancaster and daughter Hallie who were out for an early morning sea swim at Belle Grève Bay.

The bird was so tangled it could neither fly or swim.

Thankfully the finders were able to free the bird but concerned for its welfare brought the bird to the GSPCA.

The guillemot arrived at the GSPCA just after 7am where GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne was able to accept Oreo and check the bird over and give the care it needed.

In February 2019 the States of Guernsey Planning Department gave the approval for the plans for the proposed new Wildlife Hospital at the GSPCA, but sadly due to covid and the global pandemic the project was put on hold.
