At the GSPCA we know how much you treasure the memory of your pets when they are no longer with you.

We are a caring animal welfare organisation dedicated to providing your pet with the very best in dignity when their time finally comes to say goodbye, whilst at the same time giving you, the owner, total peace of mind.

 The Environment

We, at the GSPCA, take our responsibility of managing global resources seriously and do our utmost to source our products ethically and with consideration to environmental and social impacts.

The GSPCA regularly review our products and procedures in order to make improvements, such as: -

  • transporting our products in ways which minimize environmental impact
  • using packaging made from recycled material wherever possible
  • insisting our suppliers source raw materials in a responsible and sustainable way
  • ensuring our products are made from 100% natural biodegradable materials where possible
  • regularly visiting all manufacturers to inspect working standards and practices and offering support in production methods where necessary
  • using community based manufacturing wherever possible, such as in villages and co-operatives, rather than large factories. This, in turn, supports rural economies and reduces the environmental impact of commuting and migrant working and the consequent social impact on workers.

 Please note that we are no longer able to cremate goats or sheep. Please contact the States Crematorium for further details: 246541
