The shop, headed up by Michelle Champion and her great team of volunteers has had a fantastic first week and lots of kind and positive feedback.

The shop is located next to Fillers and some may remember it as the Christian Aid or Oxfam shop.

Puppy Bumble Bea popped to the GSPCA to be microchipped for just £4.99

Submitted by Steve on 14:53, 1st Sep, 2021 | 0

At the GSPCA we have offered microchipping for your cat, rabbit or dog for only £4.99 for nearly 10 years.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “The GSPCA helps over 1500 domestic animals every year and sadly only 80% of dogs and cats are microchipped meaning of the 200 stray dogs and 3-400 stray cats we help we struggle with many to quickly identify owners and some of the microchip details aren’t up to date.”
