As Guernsey has gone through 7 weeks of our second lockdown many incoming donations have been affected, not just financially.

At the GSPCA we are currently appealing for long shredded paper for the hedgehog bedding and with over 140 in our care we have a lot to look after.

Normally with offices working and many in the work place we would have a great supply but with most people working from home we have not had our normal supplies and we are in need of long (not cross) shredded paper.

We are also appealing for towels and blankets which are used throughout the 16 buildings at the GSPCA in our ambulances from caring for the seal pups to drying dishes.

If you can help you can leave them at our vedge hedge stall outside the Shelter in St Andrews or if you contact us we will try and arrange a socially distanced collection.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We use so much shredded paper and hundreds of towels and blankets every day at the GSPCA and our 4 laundry machines are on around the clock."

“The long shredded paper we use for the many hedgehogs in our care and with recent record breaking numbers its not only new cages we need but also the daily essentials.”

"Towels and blankets when used can get torn by the animals or for those used in isolation or quarantine areas may have to be disposed of for medical reasons."

"If you have long shredded paper, spare towels or blankets please think of the hundreds of animals in our care and you can drop them off any time of the night or day."

“Ideally if you can drop them off at the Shelter but as we continue to socially distance as much as possible if you could pop them at our vedge hedge stall on the roadside a member of the team will collect them.”

Steve continued “With few fund raisers and next to no boarding due to lockdown the GSPCA income has been hit hard and we need your support now more than ever.”

“There are many ways you can help support our vital 24/7 work and donate or raise funds for the hundreds of animals in our care.”

“With over 140 hedgehogs, 3 seal pups, dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, fish, reptiles and many birds we help over 3000 animals through the doors every year.”

“With so many animals in our care we would love you to join our sponsor scheme to help us each month.”

“Just a couple of pounds each month can make a massive difference in helping the animals in our care and to find out more please go to .”

“We couldn’t do so much without your support and here a few ideas of how you can help us help animals in Guernsey.”
