The GSPCA Welfare Manager, Lorna Chadwick, is working closely with Sark residents, Gemma and Richard Knight, to humanely manage the Sark feral cat population using a trap, neuter, return program.

With the permission of the Sark Constable and Chief Pleas traps have been placed at key sites and are being monitored closely through out the day. Under the guidance of the States Veterinary Officer, David Chamberlain, and with the help and support of Sark shipping the cats are then being transported back to the GSPCA for assessment.


Huge thanks to Pippa and Rasi entertaining the Sark Folk Festival and raising funds for the GSPCA

The 3 day Sark Folk Festival was once again a great success and two very special young ladies did something very kind for the GSPCA and animals in our care.

9 year old Rasi Blondin and Pippa Smith busked over the 3 days with their violins and raised an amazing £145 to help animals in our care.

You may have seen these young ladies featured previously as they have used their fantastic talent at a number of events in the last year and from all at the GSPCA we cannot thank them enough.

On Friday after a month of care and rehabilitation at the GSPCA 'Taffy' the female adult Long Eared Owl that was rescued in Sark at the beginning of August was ready to return to the wild.

As with all wildlife where possible we want to return rescued wildlife to the area they were they were found.

On Friday the Isle of Sark Shipping Company helped transport the beautiful wild bird from Guernsey back to Sark so she could be returned to the area where she was found just over 4 weeks ago.

The GSPCA helps care for and rescue thousands of animals every year and without our wonderful volunteers we really couldn't do it.

From cleaning kennels to fundraising there are dozens of roles for volunteers to help the GSPCA and next Wednesday we have our second Volunteer Welcome and Induction Evening.

With the success of the first last month which drew a crowd of 18 new volunteers to the Shelter the second is planned for 6.30pm on the 17th July.

If you see kittens at Icart Point please let the GSPCA know

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:25, 10th Jul, 2013 | 1

This week we have received a young kitten that was rescued out at Icart Point.

The GSPCA are concerned that there may be others and if you are out in the area and come across any please get in touch with the Shelter.

Tiger as he has been named was found extremely thin, no mother in site and full of worms, fleas and may not have survived if he had not been rescued.

This time of year kittens are often rescued and brought into the GSPCA and just this morning another feral was rescued and brought in from the Bouet area who is now named Molly.
