WEATHER WARNING - With windy stormy weather please watch out for oiled seabirds & seal pups

Submitted by Steve on 16:06, 20th Oct, 2017 | 0

This weekend across the Bailiwick the weather is set to put our animals and wildlife at risk.

Often during the autumn and winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

Also with the high winds we have to ensure our pets and animals kept outside are safe and secure.

The GSPCA are asking those that live around and visit our coast to please watch out for injured animals in need as well as seal pups which can get separated from their mothers at this time of year especially when we see bad weather.

Hot Cars Kill Dogs & hot pavements damage feet- As the hot weather continues please think of your pets

Submitted by Steve on 09:27, 21st Jun, 2017 | 0

With another roasting day ahead of us the GSPCA want to ensure all pet owners take care of their animals.

The GSPCA during hot weather always receive reports from concerned members of the public that have seen dogs locked in cars and other animals in glass houses.

The last month has been no different with dogs being reported in cars to pigs in greenhouses.

With the warm weather and direct sunlight, dogs in cars are potentially in a situation where you could kill your pet if it is left, regardless of the situation.


This Friday June 23rd is 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' - instead of a dress down day could your dog come to work for a donation

Submitted by Steve on 22:23, 20th Jun, 2017 | 0

This Friday June 23rd is Bring Your Dog to Work Day.

Having a dog in the room can make human colleagues more cooperative, reduce stress, increase job satisfaction and productivity.

When adopting a dog or any animal from the GSPCA we often ask how many hours potential owners may be at work.  Perhaps the question should actually be - are you able to take your dog to work?

Discussing the benefits of taking a dog to work might just result in a match with a dog we have in for homing.
