BIG FISH APPEAL - Please help support the many sick and injured seabirds and seals at the GSPCA

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:20, 21st Feb, 2014 | 0

At the GSPCA we have had the busiest start to a year with seals and seabirds than the team can remember.

Currently we have 14 guillemots, 1 gannet and 2 seal pups at the Animal Shelter.

As you can imagine they are eating a healthy amount of fish and we really need your support.

From sandeels to sprats, herring and mackerel each animal is eating large numbers to help with their recuperation.

You can donate online through our Just Giving Page, by calling 01481 257261, by post or by popping into the Shelter in St Andrews.

Robin is a male adult stray cat that came in extremely thin with multiple health problems.

When first found he even smelt as though he had been living out of a bin for some time.

With no owner found, Robin who has a lovely nature is in desperate need for your help and requires major surgery on his head to remove growths from both ears.

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said 'Robin is adorable and has been through a lot already and we now need help to get his ears operated on.'
