Last month during GSPCA Purple Week celebrating 144 years helping animals in Guernsey the Animal Shelter had many visitors from local schools to find out the work that goes on 24/7 365 days a year helping animals in Guernsey

One of the schools to visit the GSPCA were Amherst Primary School from St Peter Port.

The group were welcomed by the team at the GSPCA in the training and event room before being taken for a behind scenes tour at the Shelter.

The children found out about the work of the Animal Shelter, the five freedoms every animal should enjoy and even meet some of the animals in our care and Annie the shih tzu that lives with GSPCA Welfare Officer Lorna Prince.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "One of our main aims at the GSPCA is to educate and ensure we are all responsible pet owners and it was wonderful to meet the children from Amherst Primary School and show them around the GSPCA."

"From meeting Annie the shih tzu to seeing inside of the cattery, seeing our wildlife unit to meeting the rats in need of homes the group had many questions and all seemed to really enjoy their visit."

"If any groups are interested in a tour or a talk please get in touch and we also hold guided tours in the school holidays and even run Special Birthday Guided Tour events for those interested."

Natalie Archer from Amherst Primary School said "Thank you again for showing us around, the children had a really lovely morning and we are still having “animal shelters” built now!"
