Back on Wednesday the 17th April the GSPCA celebrated our 134th AGM.

The meeting was opened and all welcomed by GSPCA President and local Vet John Knight. John gave many of the highlights from 2016 and 2017 from the opening of the new animal welfare building to the many accolades that the GSPCA received. Many thanks were given and much praise was shared with so many that continue to help and support the incredible work that goes on 24/7.

Phil Soulsby the treasurer presented the accounts for 2016/17 and shared the news of the challenges over recent years and how we plan to look to the future with the recent donations and legacies which was also highlighted by GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne who went through the plans for the future and also shared many thanks and praise.
