Help the Guernsey Hedgehogs and the 113 at the GSPCA this Winter

Submitted by Steve on 15:58, 28th Nov, 2018 | 0

At the GSPCA we currently have 113 hedgehogs in our care and they keep on coming.

Many will think that hedgehogs will be tucked up for the Winter by now but this is far from the truth.

Every day the GSPCA are rescuing and helping hedgehogs in need and many only a month or two old.

Publicity for hedgehogs often includes that they hibernate during the Winter months but unless the temperature is below 5C they struggle to huddle down for what should be a long slumber.

Some advice walking your dog in the snow from the GSPCA

Submitted by GSPCA on 15:53, 18th Jan, 2013 | 0

Some advice on walking your dog in the snow from the GSPCA -

Place your dog in a sweater or dog coat to help keep your dog warm.  If you have a white dog then a fluorescent coat is advisable and during the dark nights are ideal (these are on sale at the GSPCA Animal Shelter.) Don't forget to wrap up warm yourself.

Keep the walks short. Winter walks should not be as long as summer strolls. A couple of times around the block should suffice, but take care underfoot.
