The GSPCA was founded in 1873 and to help celebrate 143 years caring for animals in Guernsey we are asking for your help.

There are many ways you, your school, group, work place, business can help celebrate.

The GSPCA week starts 8th February and celebrations will carry on until the 14th with our anniversary being Valentines Day the 14th February.

Ideas to get involved.......

Why not wear purple for the day?  The GSPCA logo is purple and we are encouraging people to wear purple for a day or more during this week from purple ties to GSPCA wrist bands, pin badges, or maybe you have a better idea?

A Mufti or Dress Down Day is a great and fun way to raise funds to help animals in Guernsey and celebrate our 143rd anniversary.

How about a 'Take Your Dog to Work Day' although normally this is celebrated in the summer why not hold a day at your work place early.

Maybe you would like a tombola set for your work place?  We can arrange a ticketed tombola with prizes to help raise funds for the animals in our care.

Dress as an animal for the day?  Its fun and a great way to celebrate the fact that the GSPCA help 1000's of animals and birds every year.

FACT - Did you know the Shelter has cared for two lion cubs and two monkeys in the last few years and currently has a seal pup on site?

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "In 2016 the GSPCA will have been helping animals in Guernsey for 143 years and we are asking animal lovers to help join in and celebrate with us."

'We are looking at holding a number of events during the week and if anyone has any other ideas please let us know.'

"It costs over £600,000 a year to help care for the 1000's of animals and birds we have through our doors, provide the 24 hour 7 day a week emergency service for animals, the welfare work, dog training, education and more and we are appealing for people, schools and businesses to get involved to celebrate the wonderful work we have done and have to do for the future."

"With rising costs and the biggest ever rebuild project last year we hope that Guernsey will wear purple for animals and join in our birthday fun in February."

"Our New Build project replaced 5 old structures and if you or your business would like to join our Build Partner scheme please give me a call on 257261 or email me at the GSPCA."

"We will be holding a number events and will release more details closer to the time."
