Sadly earlier this year the GSPCA had to postpone the GSPCA Animal Welfare Sunday which was due to take place in May due to lockdown and the Coronavirus Crisis.

Thankfully due to Phase 5 and the amazing #GuernseyTogether spirit, events can now take place and we are delighted to announce that this wonderful and biggest event that we hold each year will indeed take place this year on Sunday 13th September 2020, and not what was being planned in 2021.

Submitted by Steve on 10:22, 1st Jul, 2020 | 0

 

Last month we mentioned that Kim Polls on the 21st of June should have been running the Guernsey Half Marathon and she has said  “On the 21st June I should be running the Butterfield half marathon, but due to Covid-19 it has been postponed.”

“I however, will still be running the 13.1 course, albeit on my own.”

“The reason for this??  When Covid-19 hit Guernsey it changed lives.  It changed the Pols family's lives forever.”

“Losing Gran was one of the hardest things I have had to deal with.”

GSPCA urging islanders to help hedgehogs in the hot weather and take care when gardening with rising levels of strimmer injuries

Submitted by Steve on 11:31, 26th Jun, 2020 | 0

The GSPCA has been kept extremely busy with hundreds of animals arriving each month but one of the main casualties has been dehydrated and hedgehogs with extreme head wounds due to strimmers and hedges cutters.

In the last week we have rescued 16 extremely dehydrated hedgehogs, those flat and thin for their age and size, many dehydrated and those with severe maggot infested head wounds.

Gardening injuries is a huge issue for hedgehogs at this time of year and the warm weather are causing them huge challenges and the GSPCA are urging islanders to care and help save lives.

Submitted by Steve on 17:04, 19th Jun, 2020 | 0

The GSPCA carries out a huge range of services for the community and animals in Guernsey.

During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in Guernsey the GSPCA has continued 24/7 essential operations and we must thank the community and our team for their understanding and co-operation.

These have without doubt been the most difficult months in living memory for the team from ensuring we continue our vital work to raising the much needed funds which continues to be a real struggle due to the challenging times we find ourselves in.
