Over the last two Tuesday evenings we have run our cat and dog first aid courses.

Each course started just after 6.30pm and involved learning about how to save a cat or a dogs life and hints and tips on what to do.

Last night we held the Dog First Aid Course which was run by GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne and saw 9 dog lovers learning how to help four legged friends in a number of life saving circumstances.

Molly a beagle owned by the GSPCA Manager popped in half way through for those attending to help look for a heart beat in a dog.

Those attending included staff, volunteers and those interested in helping injured dogs.

Those attended included Rita Barrett, Chantal Barrett, Debbie Brodrick, Sue Gamblin, Helen Sharman, Sebienne Goman, Suzy Rose, Sophie Turian and Jennie Cronin.

After the 90 minute training session Steve Byrne took the participants over to the new multi purpose animal welfare building for a look around and to see Olivia the turtle and many of the animals in our care.

For others that would like to attend we do have dates set later this year and we would like to thank those that attended.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The first aid courses we run help give knowledge and the confidence to help your pet if ever you find them or another pet in need."

"They aren't designed to make you a vet but certainly help with what to do in the case of an emergency whilst trying to get them to the experts."

"We have more dates set later this year and looking at other possible training courses we can run."

All attending receive a pack of information from the slides, a little toy dog and a certificate of attendance
