Over the October Half Term the GSPCA held a series of Special themed Spooky Guided Tours and what a wonderful week we had.

Each afternoon at 2pm hords of children dressed in Halloween outfits and even some parents met at the front of the GSPCA ready for their Special Tour.

Each of the tours involved a Halloween themed quiz and those taken part got to see creepy crawlies up close to our tarantula ‘Webster’, learnt about the bats we care for to meeting hundreds of the animals in our care.

Every year many children with parents or guardians head out at Halloween on the 31st October dressed up to celebrate the American tradition of 'Trick or Treat'.
