HOT WEATHER ADVICE - Help our hedgehogs

Submitted by Steve on 14:53, 19th Jul, 2021 | 0

With the exceptionally warm weather it has been exceptionally busy at the GSPCA.

One of the biggest casualties being effected have been hedgehogs and the GSPCA is appealing for islanders to do all they can to help our prickly friends.

From dehydrated baby hedgehogs to those covered in fly eggs and maggots we have helped 42 hedgehogs since the start of this month.

It is important that wildlife has access to fresh water in hot weather, especially our hedgehogs and the GSPCA is urging islanders to pop a shallow bowl out to help those thirsty spiky friends.

Guernsey Police & GSPCA advice for dog and animal owners with hot weather

Submitted by Steve on 08:52, 2nd Jun, 2017 | 0

As the weather become increasingly warmer, people in Guernsey are being reminded not to leave their dogs alone in a car on a warm day.

Many people may think that it’s ok to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the windows are left open or they’re parked in the shade, but the truth is, it’s still a very dangerous situation for the dog.  Steve Byrne, GSPCA Manager said:

“It can get unbearably hot in a car on a sunny day, even when it’s not that warm.  When it’s 22 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car can soar to 47 degrees within an hour.”
