Submitted by Steve on 15:28, 10th Dec, 2017 | 0

This December the Work to Benefit team and St Andrews Floral Group are helping the GSPCA improve the Memorial Garden on site.

For nearly 145 years the GSPCA has helped and continues to help thousands of islanders each year with the death of their pet.

On site at the GSPCA we have a Memorial Garden area which we have been working to improve thanks to many kind donations and support.

We are at a stage where we are looking to purchase plants and shrubs to help landscape the area and make it a pleasant and comfortable place to sit and reflect past pets and loved ones.


GSPCA Animal Advent Calendar Day 9 - Could you buy a cat a window for Christmas to help Shelter them from the wet cold weather

Submitted by Steve on 11:38, 9th Dec, 2017 | 0

With the driving wind and rain recently we are asking for your help to gift the cats a little something to keep them dry when the weather is really bad.

We have been trailing perspex clear sheets on some of the cats pens with great success.  Each cat pen has an outside section and we have found that hanging the perspex panels on the mesh the cats still have a lovely view and plenty of fresh air while keeping the worst of the weather out.


GSPCA Animal Advent Calendar Day 8 - Please help cats like Tomsie Hope and Bruce who arrived as strays needing operations

In the last few weeks the GSPCA have helped two stray cats with major health issues.

Bruce a grey and white cat arrived at the GSPCA with a ruptured diaphragm and required a massive operation to help save his life costing just over £1000.  Bruce is recovering well in the cattery at the GSPCA but if he hadn’t been seen by the vets he wouldn’t be alive today.

Tomsie as she was called but nicknamed Hope by a few of the staff is a black cat that was rescued from St Peter Port and we have sadly been unable to find an owner.
