GSPCA Animal Advent Calendar Day 10 – Buy a plant for our Memorial Garden this Christmas

Submitted by Steve on 15:28, 10th Dec, 2017 | 0

This December the Work to Benefit team and St Andrews Floral Group are helping the GSPCA improve the Memorial Garden on site.

For nearly 145 years the GSPCA has helped and continues to help thousands of islanders each year with the death of their pet.

On site at the GSPCA we have a Memorial Garden area which we have been working to improve thanks to many kind donations and support.

We are at a stage where we are looking to purchase plants and shrubs to help landscape the area and make it a pleasant and comfortable place to sit and reflect past pets and loved ones.

This month the team at the staff and volunteers at the GSPCA have been taking part in training in Pet Bereavement thanks to the Guernsey Bereavement Service.

Sadly every day of the year staff and volunteers at the GSPCA help owners of pets that have died, whether recently or in the past and it is always hard to know if you are saying the right thing.
