Nearly every weekend and in the week we hold Special Birthday Party Tours at the GSPCA.

During May we hosted a year old birthday party and we have had some fantastic feedback which we wanted to share.

Samantha Smilie said “I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic party on Saturday!”

“The children had a great time, our guide was so enthusiastic and wonderful with the children.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We have been running Special Birthday Tours for a number of years and it is fantastic to hear great feedback.”

“The party tours is great way to celebrate a birthday combining teaching the children and raising funds for the animals in our care.”

Rual Gomez GSPCA staff member said “It was wonderful to show Samantha and her son around for his birthday with all of his friends.”

“From the reptiles to the hedgehogs we had a great birthday tour and at the end the hired our room with our Spin the Wheel so everyone got some great things to take home with them.”

“Later this month we will have guided tours for those wanting to look around, so please call on 257261 to book your place.”
