The first aid courses courses are a minimum £15 donation and you must book your place by the Saturday before the training session.

Within the sessions you get the chance to learn about what to do if you were faced with an emergency situation with your dog or cat.  All participants receive handouts, a few goodies and surprises.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We had a lovely group at the GSPCA learning about Cat First Aid.'

'At the GSPCA sadly we see between 200 and 300 RTA cats every year and other cat related injuries such as those cut from broken glass or from fighting with other cats.'

'It is great that we are able to share our knowledge from the GSPCA and even if it only helps save one cats life it will have been worth it.'

'Everyone seemed to really enjoy the training and Mr Chips one of the Shelter cats looking for a home was a real star helping demonstrate how to find a heart beat.'
