On the 4th October it is World Animal Day and to celebrate the GSPCA & Alderney Animal Welfare are launching an event called Paws for a Pint.

We are asking pubs. restaurants, hotels and anyone that would like to get involved to please sign up.

With over 20 pubs already involved in Guernsey and a number in Alderney, why don't you get in touch to find out more.

From organising an event at your local, to popping GSPCA collection boxes on the bar, maybe an animal fancy dress competition or even karaoke with animal themed songs.  

Both the GSPCA and Alderney Animal Welfare have a selection of Paws for a Pint wrist bands that your pub could sell to help raise funds for either charity.

We are looking to get packs together for your event and if you are interested then please get in touch.

For more information in Guernsey and to register please email [email protected] or call 01481 257261

For Alderney please email [email protected] or call 01481 822616

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "With World Animal Day on the 4th October both the GSPCA and Alderney Animal Welfare would like to celebrate the day launching our new wrist bands."

"If anyone is interested in getting involved with our Paws for a Pint launch please do get in touch with either myself in Guernsey or Louise in Alderney."

Louise Faulkner from Alderney Animal Welfare said "This is the first time at Alderney Animal Welfare that we've teamed up with the GSPCA to launch a fund raising initiative."

"Both ourselves and the GSPCA have two great designs for the wrist bands and we are hoping that lots of restaurants, pubs and hotels will pop them on their counters with collection boxes to help animals across the two islands."

On the 4th October the GSPCA will be in Market Square as part of World Animal Day, please pop by and see our stall.
