Mental Health Awareness Training thanks to Guernsey Mind at the GSPCA during #GSPCAPurpleWeek

Submitted by Steve on 16:36, 22nd Feb, 2019 | 0

Last week the GSPCA were not only thinking about the thousands of animals through our care we were also helping support the staff and volunteers who often see distressing scenes and are faced with cruelty and sadness when an animal cannot be helped not to mention the many other diverse situations the team are facing on a daily basis.

Jo Cottell from Guernsey Mind spent two mornings last week at the GSPCA talking to dozens of staff and volunteers about their work, support and work we all have to look after our mental health and well being.

This Valentines day the GSCA celebrates 146 years since being founded, and could you help towards the 500 animals in our care?

It costs nearly £2,000 a day to care for all of the animals at the Shelter and provide the 24/7 service the GSPCA provides 365 days a year.

From the 5 seal pups to Harley and Ellie (two dogs that needed cancer lump removal operations) there are many animals that need your support.
