This year we have seen 13 stray tortoise and currently we have 2 at the Shelter.

All 11 that came in earlier in the year are back with their owners but Ridley as he's been named above by Shelter staff and Fabian below both came in last week.

Ridley was found in the Camp du Roi area and Fabian was found at L'Ancresse.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'This year we have seen more stray Tortoise than ever before.'

'If anyone has lost any pet we always urge them to report it at the Shelter as we see anywhere between 50 and sometimes over 100 stray animals every month.'

Appeal to find Kiki the turkeys owner

Submitted by GSPCA on 22:06, 14th Aug, 2012 | 0

The GSPCA are appealing for the owner of a stray white turkey that has been at the Shelter for over a week.

Kiki as she has been fondly named was rescued from the Forest Road area on Saturday the 4th August after being reported to the Shelter wondering the streets.

She has been under treatment and is doing well but as yet no owner has come forward.  Kiki has a very friendly nature and staff are confident that there must be an owner that is missing this lovely bird and we are hoping to have them re-united.

Slippery snake does a Houdini act

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:39, 9th Jul, 2012 | 0

Just over a week ago a stray snake arrived at the Shelter after being brought in by ACO Geoff George.

The snake was spotted basking in the sun and was placed safely in a container where she spent several days before doing a Houdini act.

The little lady managed to escape and Shelter staff are now looking for her.

It is highly unlikely she has got out of the Shelter as she was in a secure room and building but if you do spot a Californian King Snake please get in touch.

This morning the GSPCA had an unusual call to collect a scaly little stray.

Ambulance Driver Geoff George often has calls to collect stray dogs, cats, rabbits and even help round up farm animals.  This morning however he was called to help this little fella. 

The snake was spotted by a member of public and phoned the GSPCA.  Geoff went out collected the young snake and we are now identifying the species and appealing for anyone who has lost a snake to come forward to the Shelter.

You can call the Shelter on 01481 257261
