HAPPY NEWS - Victoria and Battenburg happy in their new home - please do share pictures of your adopted pets

Submitted by Steve on 12:22, 2nd Apr, 2020 | 0

We absolutely love to hear from homes that have adopted animals from the GSPCA with pictures and their story of how they are doing

We recently heard from 2 degus adopted from the GSPCA Victoria and Battenburg.

Their new owner Caitlin Baxter said “I recently adopted Victoria and Battenburg the degus from the GSPCA and it says to send in some photos of them once they're settled it, so here they are!”

“They are both very friendly, Battenburg especially, she loves to grab my hand or pull on my clothes when she wants attention.”

At the GSPCA finding an animal a new home is a very special moment as we wave them off on their new adventure.

When we hear how they are doing it is even more heart warming and earlier this year we found a very special cat a home called Charlie.

Charlie's new owner contacted us recently with an update and said “I am pleased to confirm that Charlie has settled in with us really quickly.”

On Friday two guinea pigs were dumped at the GSPCA.

In these challenging days the GSPCA like all of our community are experiencing a broad range of unique circumstances.

One of the biggest like with many charities and businesses is the dramatic change in income from donations and boarding and we appeal for your support during these difficult times.

GSPCA advice to animal owners and what to do if you find animal during heightened procedures due to Coronavirus

Submitted by Steve on 16:22, 16th Mar, 2020 | 0

During these difficult days in relation to Coronavirus or Covid-19 as well as thinking about the health and well being of one another we also need to ensure the animals of Guernsey are cared for.

While there is no evidence to suggest that pets can be carriers of Coronavirus or can become ill from it themselves, your pets may be impacted if you or any members of your family test positive for the virus or are asked to stay at home and self-isolate.

Submitted by Steve on 11:07, 10th Mar, 2020 | 0

At the GSPCA we provide an essential service to animals in need and the community. With the heightened risk of Covid-19 we are taking steps to reduce risk to our team and visitors by postponing all non-essential events until further advice is given.

Sadly this does means that all room hire, volunteer inductions, first aid courses, dog training, educational talks, educational visits, events run by the GSPCA are being postponed until further notice.
