Not Good but GREAT Friday as Marty the seal pup released back into his Jersey home waters

Submitted by Steve on 16:35, 19th Apr, 2019 | 0

After months of care and with good weather on our site the GSPCA released Marty the Jersey seal pup back in the wild today and it was without doubt one of the best releases ever for the GSPCA team.

This Winter has been exceptionally busy for seal pups at the GSPCA as up until this morning we have had 6 in our care but thanks to a lovely Jersey family and their boat Marty is now back in the wild.

Marty arrived at the GSPCA on the 17th December just a week before Christmas last year weighing just 18kg when he should have been 40kg.

Submitted by Steve on 08:53, 11th Apr, 2019 | 0

National Pet Day is a chance for those of us who own pets to show them how much we love them.

We all can think of the traditional things: a new toy, some tasty treats, or a long walk in the park, maybe a game of fetch, assuming you have a dog!

But, think outside the box and come up with some ideas to celebrate your relationship with your pet. Once you have indulged your own animals with their favourite treats, why not consider donating to the many animals at the GSPCA?

GSPCA saddened to hear that Kodak the capuchin has passed away

Submitted by Steve on 19:21, 10th Apr, 2019 | 0

In December 2007 we welcomed a very unusual visitor to the GSPCA – Kodak, a 5 year old Tufted Capuchin monkey.

Taken from the wild and sold as a pet to a gentleman in Greece, who thankfully realised that to keep Kodak isolated from species of his own kind, was cruel. Kodak was relinquished to a monkey sanctuary in Holland (AAP) and eventually, a place was found for him at the Monkey Sanctuary Trust in Cornwall.
