Submitted by GSPCA on 15:14, 18th Feb, 2013 | 0

Tomorrow from 10am as part of the Tuesday GSPCA Coffee and Bric-a-brac mornings we will be offering guided tours at 10am, 11am, 12pm and 1pm for £5 per person.

Tours take just short of an hour and include visiting many of the 200 animals at the Shelter.

The main stars of the tour will be the two grey seal pups that will be visible through the one way glass in the wildlife unit.

Tours start at the Event and Training Room.  If groups are too large we may need to stagger the hourly start, as we can only take restricted numbers into certain buildings.

Hanois the grey seal pup has his first swim & we still need your support for the Big Fish Appeal

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:46, 7th Feb, 2013 | 0

Today Hanois our second grey seal pup this winter got his first swim since being rescued in one of the GSPCA Animal Shelter pools.

At only 3 to 4 months of age and having being kept warm during his rehabilitation after being found sick and injured near L'Ancresse 4 weeks ago he wasn't too keen on his first dip.

Geoff George Animal Collection Officer and main seal carer at the Shelter said 'A Bit like Jethou Bumblebee was, Hanois wasn't that keen coming out in the cold and diving in the water but once in he had a good look around.'

Do you have historic pictures or videos of the GSPCA work to help us look back at 140 years history

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:07, 4th Jan, 2013 | 0

Next month the GSPCA will be celebrating 140 years caring for animals in Guernsey and we are appealing for pictures or video clips of the work during our 84 years at our current address or even the early 1900's or late 1800's that anyone that may have.

We have a very good record of our history back until the late 1920's but very few pictures.

Our records include annual reports back to 1929 and even a visitor book from the 1970's with some lovely signatories.


Please help Felix a very special cat needing a farm or stable home

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:11, 3rd Jan, 2013 | 0

Felix has now been at the GSPCA Animal Shelter since October 2011 and we want to start the New Year finding her that forever home.

She came in as a feral and unfortunately is still very nervous so would best suit a farm or stable yard home.  At only 3 years of age she does get on well with other cats and we are asking for your help.

Even if you can't offer her a home if you could download a poster and display it or even spread the word of her needing a home from talking to friends to sharing on social networks such as facebook and twitter we would really appreciate it.
