This time last year we had a litter of baby bunnies born at the GSPCA.

A year later Hazel and Lavender two of those baby bunnies are still here and looking for their new and forever home.

As it is such a special day one of our team has given them a very special treat for their special day.

To give a gift to Hazel and Lavender a birthday gift donation and the other animals please visit -

Seb Goman GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said “Happy first birthday to Hazel and Lavender.”

“I’m hosting a bunny ‘afternoon tea’ as this time last year they were born here.”

“Hazel and Lavender are looking for a new home together and we would love to hear from anyone that can help.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Last year we had 161 rabbits through our doors, we have already helped 52 rabbits this year and we 31 currently in our care.”

“We have more rabbits looking for homes than any other species of animals and two of those today have had a very special day.”

"Sadly wild coloured rabbits are often here much longer than other colours of rabbits which is wwhy they have been here so long."

“Animal Care Assistant Seb has been caring for the bunnies today and given Lavender and Hazel a lovely party and treats as its their birthday today.”

“As you can see from the pictures they are wonderful and if anyone is interested in any rabbit please complete a form online or call us on 01481 257261 and we can post one out.”

“Sadly when adopting any animal due to Covid-19 restrictions you cannot visit the GSPCA at this time, but we are rehoming all be it using modern technology such a video messaging and email.”

“To see our online adoption procedure please visit and to see some of the bunnies in need of homes .”

“Other than finding animals new homes the main challenge is raising the funds as we aren’t able to run our normal events or charity shop and with only a few emergency boarders we have faced a real struggle to raise the £2,000 a day to run the Shelter so we launched our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal .”

“We have had some amazing donations towards this much needed appeal and if you would like to donate you can do so by calling 01481 257261, by post or online via our web page .”

“Another great way to supporting is by donating each month and to find out details please visit this web page .”

“Without your support the GSPCA couldn’t achieve so much caring and helping over 3000 animals every year.”

By post please make cheques payable to 'GSPCA’ and post to GSPCA, Rue des Truchots, St Andrews, Guernsey, GY6 8UD.
