Last night at the GSPCA the second Animal Care and Welfare Course saw another 15 graduates.

The Monday night course that started back in January has taken 8 weeks and covered a wealth of topics in caring for animals and working with them.

Last night Sarah, Sue, Siriol, Carolyn, Marilyn, Michelle, Andrew, Simon, Craig, Lisa, Hannah, Zoe, Mandy and John had their last session which covered grooming and coat care.  We also recapped the 8 weeks and had a Q and A followed by a presentation of certificates.

Due to demand the GSPCA and WEA have teamed up once more to run the third Animal Care and Welfare course at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

With the number of bank holidays and to give those who have a busy Monday evening we have moved this 8 week course to a Tuesday evening (breaks on the 1st and 25th April)

With limited places please book your place as soon as possible:

  • Wild animal rescue and first aid,
  • Emergency care,
  • Domestic animal health checking,
  • Animal handling and grooming,
  • Animal behaviour and psychology,
  • Nutrition and diets for animals,
  • An introduction to the GSPCA and the history of animal welfare,
  • and an Introduction to careers with animals

8 sessions Tuesdays 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm

Location: GSPCA Animal Shelter Rue des Truchots, St. Andrews

The next course starts 25th March 2014

The cost of the course is £60 and payable to WEA
