Still no owner found for Catrina the stray cat at the vets who is having her operation today

Submitted by Steve on 11:24, 17th Feb, 2017 | 0

Catrina the cat is still at the vets and as we write this has gone to be operated on.

A huge thank you to all that have donated so far to her care, sadly we still have no idea who she belongs to but she has been improving each day.

We all have our fingers crossed for her and she will have to stay at the vets over the weekend at the very least.


Frank the guillemot being released back to the wild by the GSPCA in St Peter Port, Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 17:07, 12th Feb, 2015 | 0

Today we released Frank the guillemot back to the wild.

Frank was found near the Fairy Rink in Pleinmont covered in oil on January 15th.

After a period in an intensive care unit, a number of bathes to remove the oil and ten days on our recovery pool he had an identification ring fitted and passed as fit to release.

Just after midday he was caught, boxed and transported just below Castle Cornet slipway.

GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne drove Frank to be released and on what was a calm sea let him out.

Today Shelter staff and volunteers had the pleasure of a local expert in Gulls give a talk on their movements, the tracking of them and their behaviour.

Paul Veron who has been ringing birds since 1976 and has rung over 53,000 himself since starting has a wealth of knowledge that he shared with the GSPCA team before they started their work.

Paul talked primarily about the movements and ringing work of the Herring Gull, Black Back Gull and Lesser Back Gull all of which breed around the Bailiwick.

How cute is this stray baby ferret that was found cold and very weak?

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:58, 16th May, 2013 | 0

Earlier this week late on Tuesday evening a very kind gentleman spotted this little fella at the side of the road in the St Saviours area.

Andrea as staff have named him at only just over a month isn't even old enough to be away from his mother and is needing bottle feeding by Shelter staff at the GSPCA.

Andrea arrived late in the evening and GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne accepted the young ferret who was very cold, weak and quiet.

A pen was quickly set up with additional heating and Andrea thankfully pulled through the first night well.

Submitted by GSPCA on 09:55, 22nd Feb, 2013 | 0

The GSPCA has recently received a large number of calls from concerned members of public about horses and other animals in wet and muddy fields.

Unfortunately due to the very wet winter we have all had to endure here in Guernsey the GSPCA Welfare and Education Officer has had a number of animals that have been reported to the GSPCA.

Emma Trousdale GSPCA Welfare and Education Officer said ‘With such a wet winter many animals have been affected both wild and domestic.’
