The Channel Islands Co-operative Society Limited will be donating 5% of its profits from pet food to the Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ (GSPCA) Save Our Seals campaign.

Last year, the Co-op supported the Jersey Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ (JSPCA) #SaveOurShelter campaign by donating 5% of pet food sales to the Animals’ Shelter.

The Society is now launching the same initiative in Guernsey where funds raised during April and May will go towards supporting the seal pups within the GSPCA’s care.

Steve Byrne, Manager at the GSPCA, said: ‘We are hugely grateful to the Co-op for supporting us in raising funds to help feed the six seal pups at the GSPCA. It is unprecedented in the GSPCA’s history that we have had this many seal pups being rehabilitated at the shelter. The pups are very lucky to be alive as they were all suffering from starvation and had a variety of injuries and ailments when they were rescued. Thankfully, they are now all on the road to recovery. Some of the pups will be with us until after the spring once the weather has improved and they’re at a suitable weight then they can be returned to the waters where they belong.

‘With each seal pup eating a bucket of fish a day, every penny helps make a real difference to their care. We are also raising funds for the new Wildlife Hospital to help improve the facilities we have for the seal pups and the 2000 wild animals that come into our care.  The Co-op is such a caring and supportive business which has helped the GSPCA, the animals and the community we support in many ways and we cannot thank them enough for this wonderful initiative,’ he added.

The Channel Islands Co-operative Society’s Chief Operating Officer Mark Cox, said: ‘We are delighted to support the GSPCA’s Save Our Seals campaign. As a community retailer, we want to make a real difference to our Island communities and offer our support wherever we can. The GSPCA is a fantastic charity that does such important work by providing a service to animals in need of care. We hope the 5% of profits from pet food will raise sufficient funds to help rehabilitate the seal pups back to health.’
