Animal charities are already seeing consequences of rising cost of living.

The GSPCA helps thousands of animals every year and during the last two years we have seen a huge increase in pet ownership.  Sadly in recent months we have seen a sharp increase in those wanting to part with their pets many siting that they are struggling to afford their pets.

At the GSPCA we help 1000’s of cats every year but the numbers looking for homes have been decreasing over the years.

This has meant from time to time we have space in our cat pens and when we are able we help charities which are members of the Association of Cats and Dogs Home (ADCH) which are based across the British Isles and Ireland.

On Friday 29th October 2021 the GSPCA helped 5 cats from the RSPCA in Wales which were in need.

The GSPCA has been made aware of possible scams of unscrupulous individuals advertising pictures of puppies for sale in attempt to deceive those looking for a new 4 legged friend.

Covid has affected the world in many ways and trying to find a new pet is more difficult now than it has been for many years.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “At the GSPCA we are extremely concerned about reports of people falsely advertising animals online to try and deceive people looking for a new pet out of their money.”

In An Emergency There Are Pets Inside poster and are your pets cared for if something was to happen to you?

Submitted by Steve on 16:06, 5th May, 2020 | 0

There are those that worry what would happen to our pets if something happened and we were rushed into hospital leaving our pets in our home.

At the GSPCA we have been highlighting this especially since the Covid-19 pandemic began as it is extremely important that our pets are safe and have the care they require even when something happens to the owner.

The ‘In An Emergency There Are Pets Inside’ poster has been created to help put owners minds at rest and ensure that no pets are left at home if something was to happen to them.
