On Sunday the 14th July 2013 at the Bon Port Hotel we would like to invite you to Labradog Day, a day to celebrate Labradors in Guernsey.

Organised by Cherry Dewey we are asking labrador owners from around the Bailiwick to come along with their Labradors for a fun filled afternoon.

We are also trying to get as many Labradors from around the island so we can get a phot of them all together.

The day includes -

3pm a picture of all the Labradors together

Only 2 days to go and Natalie Randall one of the Shelter volunteers has stepped up to join GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne, Animal Collection Officer Geoff George and Animal Care Assistant Tony Gallie who are all doing the whole 38.5 miles around the Island to help raise funds for the annual event and the 2013 chosen charities.

The walk has now become one of Guernsey's key fund raising events for local charities and attracts several hundred participants every year determined to complete the nearly forty mile route.

Last night 18 new volunteers attended the first ever GSPCA Volunteer Evening to find out how they can help and get the ball rolling.

Want to Volunteer for the GSPCA? Pop along to the Animal Shelter tomorrow at 6.30pm - Wednesday 5th June 2013

If we didn't have volunteers at the GSPCA we couldn't exist, as every day kind individuals give up their own time to help the Animal Shelter and the work that goes on around the clock.

In a very basic calculation volunteers gave up well in excess of 13'000 hours during 2012 which is the same as 300 people working one 40 hour week.

From dog walkers to fund raisers, night wardens to receptionists, gardening to mucking out the GSPCA are grateful to each and every person that gives up their time to help the many animals in our care.

Fun Dog Show and Summer Fayre on Saturday 7th July was a fantastic day but a very wet one

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:52, 10th Jul, 2012 | 0

On Saturday we held our Fun Dog Show and Summer Fayre.

We say summer but unfortunately the heavens opened and it rained for most of the day.  Despite the wet weather the show went ahead.

As we had to fit owners and dogs into the training room at the Shelter the decision had to be made to go from 13 classes to 1 big class which was judged by Channelonline presenter Rob Moore.

Over 50 dogs attended and Rob met each dog and chatted to all the owners.  From chihuahuas to boxers, staffies to cross breeds, there were dogs of all shapes and sizes.
