At the GSPCA we have seen a fantastic response to our recent Birthday and Special occasion guided tours and have already got many booked in over the coming weeks. (Booking form at base of page)

From young to old we now offer a unique experience for a loved one, family member or friend to see behind the scenes at the GSPCA.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "This year we have started offering unique birthday and special guided tours and they have been proving hugely popular."

"We have also now teamed up with Island Mums and provide card holders a discount on this wonderful experience."

"Our special tours include a behind the scenes tour of the GSPCA in St Andrews with a focus on the special person who may be celebrating a birthday, anniversary or even a retirement gift."

"Each tour is unique as the animals in our care vary from one week to the next and previous one's have helped feed baby birds to Olivia the turtle."

"You can even hire our events room and we have a great caterer who can help us help you provide the full birthday party for you child or loved one."

"Please do get in touch if you would like to know more and to see previous tours please visit -"

If you would like to bring a private group or party to the GSPCA for a visit and tour at the Animal Shelter we can arrange this in advance.

We ask for a minimum donation of £60 for a group of 8 and an additional £5 per person with groups larger than 8 (restrictions do apply with children to adult numbers).

We can provide a birthday or gift pack if the tour is for a special occasion.

We have a large events room, tables, chairs, projectors, speakers with mic, and a number of toys or things for children on request.

Guided tours of the Shelter take about 60 to 90 minutes and it is your opportunity to see behind the scenes, although for animal welfare reasons there are areas that are unable to be viewed.

If the event is for a special occasion the birthday or lucky individual will receive special treatment and be allowed some unique experiences holding and possibly feeding some of the animals in our care.

We already have many bookings over the next few months, you can book after school for a 3pm, 4pm or 5pm event. Weekend tours tend to be at 11am or 1pm (please ask for other times or evening tours).
