Thanks once again to the #GuernseyTogether spirit the 2021 Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday will be the tenth and takes place on Sunday 12th September.

We had planned to hold it in May but as with the reasons given for the Liberation Day celebration alterations the GSPCA have taken the decision to move from May to September.

On the 12th September 2021 10am to 4pm the GSPCA will once again be organising a day to celebrate the animals in Guernsey and all the wonderful work that is done to care for them.

Next Sunday (13th September) if you can help volunteer or have a vehicle you could help us transport goods we would love to hear from you.

We are planning to pack a number of vans in preparation this Friday ready to drive down for our Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday from 7am.

If you could lend a van, especially a luton or large transit we would really appreciate it.

Every year it is a huge logistical challenge to transport the many tents, goods and animals from the GSPCA into St Peter Port.

At the GSPCA we are normally appealing for homes for animals, but we are currently appealing for your unwanted soft toys.

The cuddly toys we are appealing for will found good homes as prizes on some of our games to help raise funds for the Shelter such as our upcoming Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday.

If you have any unwanted soft toys then please pop them up to the Shelter or if you need a vehicle to pick up quite a few then please let us know and we can arrange collection.
