GSPCA take a cautious approach returning to the new normal – GSPCA Plan for our services and volunteers returning

Submitted by Steve on 17:04, 19th Jun, 2020 | 0

The GSPCA carries out a huge range of services for the community and animals in Guernsey.

During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in Guernsey the GSPCA has continued 24/7 essential operations and we must thank the community and our team for their understanding and co-operation.

These have without doubt been the most difficult months in living memory for the team from ensuring we continue our vital work to raising the much needed funds which continues to be a real struggle due to the challenging times we find ourselves in.
