All this year at the GSPCA we have been celebrating 150 years - https://www.gspca.org.gg/page/gspca-celebrating-150-year

As part of the celebrations we have held a range of events and last night was the final animal first aid course of 2023.

For over a decade we have been running dog and cat first aid courses which help teach owners and pet lovers how to save the life of their pet or animal.

The next GSPCA Dog and Cat First Aid Courses will take place in 2024.

Last night Sarah, Sue, Siriol, Carolyn, Marilyn, Michelle, Andrew, Simon, Craig, Lisa, Hannah, Zoe, Mandy and John had their last session which covered grooming and coat care.  We also recapped the 8 weeks and had a Q and A followed by a presentation of certificates.
