Len Le Prevost due to lockdown had grown a very long head of hair and decided to help much needed funds for the GSPCA by cutting it off.

Len Le Prevost said “My hair had grown very long and I decided to cut it off and raise funds for the GSPCA.”

After nearly a year much loved 15 year old Hector is off to his new home

Submitted by Steve on 16:51, 26th Apr, 2021 | 0

Last May Hector a lovely black cat arrived at the GSPCA.

Sadly during his year we discovered a variety of health issues from diabetes to other ailments.

This meant many of the team handled this adorable chap twice a day as he required regular medications morning and night with a special diet.

Anna Paint GSPCA Senior Animal Care Assistant said “The Amazing Hector has left the building to go to his forever home.”

“He had lots of kisses, I gave him a kiss from everyone, he walked up the cattery chatting to all the cats, I’m sure he was saying goodbye.”

Baby bird advice from the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 15:59, 26th Apr, 2021 | 0

With Spring well underway the GSPCA are asking Islanders to please be mindful of the many fledglings popping up around the Bailiwick. 

The GSPCA would like to remind that as a general rule, it is best to leave baby birds alone.

A baby bird has a greater chance of survival in the wild than it has being hand-reared by man as they learn to fend for themselves and how to forage for food by their parents.

Around 2 weeks after hatching young birds in your Bailiwick garden usually leave the nest, just before they learn how to fly.
