Petplan and the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) have joined forces for the fifth year of the Animal Charity Awards. The awards celebrate the outstanding work of staff and volunteers in animal charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands.

The team at the GSPCA are overjoyed to report that Geoff George GSPCA Animal Collection Officer from nearly 5000 nominations is one of three finalists for the Animal Charity Employee of the Year.

Geoff has worked at the GSPCA for over 20 years and from rescuing dolphins to caring for hedgehogs, working 24/7 to rehabilitating seals, transporting turtles to hand feeding baby birds, helping owners with their pets knocked over to catching stray dogs, answering the phone to fund raising Geoff is a huge part of the Shelter and we are all extremely proud of this wonderful achievement recognising his phenomenal commitment to animal welfare.

Geoff George GSPCA Animal Collection Officer said "It was such a surprise to be told I was a finalist for the Petplan and ADCH Animal Charity Employee of the Year."

"I can't believe in nearly 5000 nominations that this is actually happening."

"They have invited me along to the awards which happen later this month where we find out the results."

"It's a busy time at the GSPCA with rescues and over 400 animals at the Shelter and it was so kind of the person whoever nominated me."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We are all so proud of Geoff as he works so hard and is always there for an animal in need."

"From Olivia the turtle to the Slovakian puppies, Sami the seal pup to so many others Geoff has been a part of so many animals rescue stories and whether helping in the middle of the night or all day and missing lunch he is a credit to the GSPCA."

"The ADCH are all invited to Guernsey in July as we host a meeting and we are looking forward welcoming many of the 130 charities that make up this wonderful association that we take an active part in as I volunteer on the committee and to work with so many like minded charities is a real joy."

"It has been an amazing few months as Geoff has been a finalist in the Guernsey Press and Specsavers awards, the GSPCA has won the Guernsey Community Foundation Charity of the Year and last week we received the Ceva Animal Welfare Special Recognition Awards on their international stage."

"We have a wonderful caring team of 20 paid staff and over 700 active volunteers and help over 3000 animals a year and we are all wishing Geoff luck later this month at the ADCH and Petplan Awards."

"We will all course keep everyone up to date on how Geoff ets on at the awards evening later this month."

Recently a film crew visited on behalf of the awards and we look forward to the GSPCA being show cased in front of 500 charity workers, vets, comapnies, retailers and volunteers.
