Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “The Ceva Animal Welfare Awards are a fantastic way that those helping animals 24/7 in so many ways are highlighted and celebrated.

“Last year a team of us at the GSPCA were flown over as we were humbled in getting an incredible honour which was the Special International Animal Welfare Recognition Award.”

“It’s really easy to vote and some great categories to recognise the incredible work that goes on around the world helping animals 35 days a year.”
