Each year the GSPCA helps in excess of 2000 wild animals and birds through our doors at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Last year we saw a record breaking number of hedgehogs with over 700 through our doors and we currently have over 140 in our care and with Spring fast approaching we will soon see hoglets being born.

We are already helping fledglings and baby birds like Dave the duckling who is doing well.

Although we are almost at the end of the seal pup season for the Channel Islands we continue to care for Ellie, Titan and Joey all are doing well and enjoying our rehabilitation pools.

Sadly daily we continue to see extremely sick pigeons as the Pigeon Paramyxovirus spreads across the Island and we have had birds and reports from most Guernsey Parishes.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Today is #WorldWildlifeDay and with over 2000 wild animals and birds through our doors every year and record breaking numbers of hedgehogs last year we are kept busy 365 days a year help wild animals in need.”

“Sadly Pigeon Paramyxovirus continues to spread and daily we are helping many sick birds that cannot be saved due to the deadly disease.”

“On a brighter note Dave the duckling continues to do well and the seal pups Ellie, Titan and Joey improve daily.”

“Spring is fast approaching and we are already seeing young animals needing our help and if you find sick or injured wildlife you can call us 24/7 on 01481 257261.”

“We still really want to build a new wildlife hospital but while things are so challenging we continue to focus on bringing the funds to carry out our essential work.”

“24/7 we help wildlife but we couldn’t do so much without your support.”

Steve continues “With few fund raisers and next to no boarding due to lockdown the GSPCA income has been hit hard and we need your support now more than ever.”

“There are many ways you can help support our vital 24/7 work and donate or raise funds for the hundreds of animals in our care.”

“With over 140 hedgehogs, 3 seal pups, dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, fish, reptiles and many birds we help over 3000 animals through the doors every year.”

“With so many animals in our care we would love you to join our sponsor scheme to help us each month.”

“Just a couple of pounds each month can make a massive difference in helping the animals in our care and to find out more please go to .”

“We couldn’t do so much without your support and here a few ideas of how you can help us help animals in Guernsey.”
