The GSPCA is appealing for any information after a gorgeous white syrian hamster was left abandoned in a plastic bag in Church Square on Wednesday 2nd November.

The GSPCA were alerted by concerned staff at the Paper Box’ after a cleaner had found the animal left in a small cage tied up in a carrier bag with no food or water. 

The hamster, who has been named Hobo, is being cared for by staff at the GSPCA until a new home can be found for her.

Lorna Prince the Welfare Manager said that “there is absolutely no excuse for abandoning an animal in this way. If people have pets that they can no longer look after, for whatever reason then help and advice is always available from the GSPCA who are more than happy to help.  Abandoning an animal in a plastic bag is just not acceptable”.

Mrs Prince is now keen to trace the owner of the hamster and urges anyone with information to contact the GSPCA.
