He was rescued earlier today by GSPCA team member Neil Hughes who attended in the GSPCA Ambulance.

Oberon has been checked over and is under treatment in our Wildlife Unit.

The Peregrine was called in this morning and GSPCA team member Kevin Beausire headed there in the GSPCA Ambulance with the caller informing us the bird was caught in netting.

Submitted by Steve on 13:03, 18th Nov, 2020 | 0

A huge thanks from all at the GSPCA to those that supported the GSPCA Quiz Night at the Cock and Bull which took place last week.

Originally planned for March earlier this year it sadly had to be postponed due to lock down and Covid-19.

Thankfully due to our safe Bailiwick bubble and #GuernseyTogether spirit organisors and GSPCA team members Beckie Bailey and Nicolle Morgan were able to reschedule and run what was a fabulous evening.

With dozens of raffle prizes and dozens of participants the pub was full with supporters raising funds for the many animals in our care.
