Crash one of the smallest ever grey seal pups and first of the season rescued now at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 20:30, 5th Dec, 2019 | 0

Earlier today our Animal Collection Officer and GSPCA Head of Marine Mammals Geoff George was rescued a 2-3 day old Grey seal Pup from Grandes Rocques.

The very emaciated and poorly pup was nearly a quarter of the weight he should be for his age with no mother in sight.

At only 12kgs if the pup hadn’t been rescued it would have surely perished on our West Coast.

‘Crash’ as the young pup has been named is now receiving around the clock intensive care as it will need fluids and rehydration every 2 hours 24/7 to stablise it.

Dexter the young cat really loving life in his new home

Submitted by Steve on 13:37, 4th Dec, 2019 | 0

You may have seen our two recent posts on older cats desperately in need of homes and how Spud and Dexter are settling well in their forever homes.

This is Dexter one of our rare younger recent residents that as you can see is loving his wonderful new home.

It is great that we see very few kittens in need or suffering, but this does mean we don’t often have many young cats in need of homes, but we certainly have many older cats needing that special someone.

You may have just seen the story on Spud a 15 year old cat now happy in his forever home. We recently had another update from a cat called Bandit.

Anna Paint Senior Animal care Assistant said “Bandit was an 11year old cat that when he arrived needed a bit of dental work.”

“Older cats very often need very special homes which are few and far to find but after 6 months of care we found this lovely cat just the right home.”

Spud an older cat happy in his new home

Finding the older cats new homes in Guernsey is often a struggle and no more so than for the lovely Spud.

It took over 7 months for us to find this loving wonderful cat his forever home which we are delighted to say he is doing very well in.

Anna Paint Senior Animal care Assistant said “Spud was with us for 7 months before he went to his forever home and we are delighted to say he is doing very well and we are getting lots of updates as his new Dad is one of our wonderful volunteers.”

Help Guernsey Hedgehogs in what is a record year in numbers arriving at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 11:44, 26th Nov, 2019 | 0

Many think that Guernsey hedgehogs like their cousins in the UK hibernate but sadly this is a rare occurrence for the majority of our spikey friends as they require a temperature of 5c or below for their body clock to switch to this Winter behaviour.

With the mild climate we have in the Channel Islands it is rare for a day to go by that we don’t rescue of help a hedgehog 365 days a year.
