The GSPCA would like to thank everyone that turned out for the Reservoir Sponsored Dog Walk yesterday with Sidney's Events.

Nearly 30 dogs and walkers arrived at Rue des Anvilles car park to walk the 3 miles of pathes around the Reservoir.

Some in fancy dress and all with smiles, the group of walkers with tiny dogs like Jack Russels and Pugs to German Shepherds and Red Setters all had a lovely walk, with beautiful scenery, enjoying each others company whilst raising funds to help animals in Guernsey.

Blizzard conditions highlight concerns for tethered Guernsey cattle

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:13, 20th Mar, 2013 | 0

Last week the GSPCA was inundated with calls of tethered cattle that were left out in the blizzard conditions.

Despite the awful weather, Shelter staff drove to many of the animals to check their condition and we reported our concerns to the owners.

With tethering of cattle being a legal practice within Guernsey the Shelter was unable to take any action other than passing our concerns to the owners of the animals.

At only 7 years old a cat called Pickles here at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in Guernsey has been diagnosed with skin cancer and needs your support.

Cinders is doing well after her operation yesterday

Submitted by GSPCA on 18:05, 28th Feb, 2013 | 0

You may have heard about or seen Cinders the cat on the internet or local media.

She came in to the Shelter for rehoming but unfortunately had a number of issues with her health, teeth and gums.

Cinders had an initial opertation and has been on treatment for two months but unfortunately yesterday the brave decision had to be made to remove all but her 4 canines leaving her with a very gummy mouth.

Although never an easy decision, despite a series of treatments, it was decided to remove many of Cinders teeth as it was in her best interest.


Felix really needs your help after more than a year in search of that forever home at the GSPCA

Submitted by GSPCA on 18:07, 13th Nov, 2012 | 0

Felix arrived at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in October in 2011 and has been at the Shelter for well over a year which makes her the longest stay cat in need of a new home. Many of you will know of Victor a cat who also came in around the same time and we are pleased to say he is off to a new home very soon.

Unfortunately Felix came in as a 3 year old semi-feral and as such was extremely nervous and timid after her bad start in life.

The GSPCA is currently planning to approach various Pet Shops throughout the Island to see if working together could better the welfare of the animals sold in Pet Shops and help with general concerns from the public.  The welfare of animals within Pet Shops has always been a concern at the GSPCA and so the opportunity to work along side a responsible Pet Shops is a fantastic opportunity.


Slippery snake does a Houdini act

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:39, 9th Jul, 2012 | 0

Just over a week ago a stray snake arrived at the Shelter after being brought in by ACO Geoff George.

The snake was spotted basking in the sun and was placed safely in a container where she spent several days before doing a Houdini act.

The little lady managed to escape and Shelter staff are now looking for her.

It is highly unlikely she has got out of the Shelter as she was in a secure room and building but if you do spot a Californian King Snake please get in touch.
