A huge thanks from GSPCA to Pets at Home & Support Adoption for Pets & those that supported the Santa Paws Appeal

Last week GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne and the team had a lovely visit from Rory Thorington Store Manager and Nicole Prevel Store Colleague from Guernsey Pets at Home.

The visit was to have a tour of the Shelter and to see the many animals in our care and the work that is carried out 24/7 helping over 3000 animals every year.

As well as a visit Rory and Nicole had a wonderful gift for the many animals at the GSPCA.

During the run up to Christmas, Support Adoption for Pets with Pets at Home ran their most successful ever Santa Paws Christmas appeal. Nationwide over 1.4 million was raised across 446 Pets at Home stores, all thanks to all those involved and supported this fantastic fund raising event.

Last week the Guernsey Pets at Home team presented the GSPCA with a wonderful £888.25p raised locally to help animals here in Guernsey from the event.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “It was wonderful to show Rory and Nicole around last week from Pets at Home and what a lovely surprise to receive £888.25p from the Santa Paws Appeal which they run with Support Adoption for Pets.”

“The funds will help hugely with the 500 animals in our care, especially those looking for homes.”

“From snakes to lizards, degus to parrots, diamond doves to dogs, cats to guinea pigs, turtles to budgies we have a wide range of animals in need of loving new homes at the GSPCA.”

“We are hugely grateful to Pets at Home and Support Adoption for Pets for their support and their wonderful donation.”

Rory Thorington Pets at Home Store Manager said “It was fantastic to see the varied and great work that the GSPCA carry out all day every day.”

“Pets at Home are very proud to support the GSPCA that do so much for the animals and wildlife of Guernsey.”

“From all the team at Guernsey Pets at Home we really hope the Santa Paws Appeal donation helps the many animals at the GSPCA and we are looking forward in helping support the Shelter through 2018.”

Nicole Prevel Pets at Home Store Colleague said “It was amazing to see the excellent work that the GSPCA do to help so many animals.”

“I was really impressed with the care and the wide variety of work that goes on and it was so good to see behind the scenes.”

Laura Messenger, Grant Funding Coordinator at Support Adoption For Pets, said: “It is a real privilege to help an organisation that works so hard to care for and rehome pets in need."

"They are doing a superb job, and the effort the rescue puts in is an inspiration.”
