GSPCA Wishing Well

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'The GSPCA has been helping animals in Guernsey for 140 years next month and we are asking animal lovers to help join in and celebrate with us.'

'It costs over £500,000 a year to help care for the 1000's of animals and birds we have through our doors, provide the 24 hour 7 day a week emergency service for animals, the welfare work, dog training, education and more and we are appealing for people, schools and businesses to get involved to celebrate the wonderful work we have done and have to do for the future.'

'With rising costs and the need to build a new Cattery and Quarantine Building we hope that Guernsey will wear purple for animals and join in our birthday fun in February.'

'We will be holding a number events and will release more details closer to the time.'
