GSPCA Domestic Birds Move Outside for the First Time

Submitted by Steve on 13:19, 1st Aug, 2014 | 0

Today we are pleased to announce that domestic birds that come in for rehoming now have a lovely aviary with a view to live in and stretch their wings.

With the new animal welfare legislation now a month after coming into force and the GSPCA striving to lead an example in animal care four birds today moved into their new home.

The wooden framed aviary welcomed two budgies and two cockatiels who are at the Shelter in need of a home.

Cockatiels Rosie and Jim were the first to fly up onto the perches, closely followed by Peter and Paula the budgies.

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.

Wildlife Advice With The Windy Start To 2012

Submitted by GSPCA on 20:19, 4th Jan, 2012 | 1

The start of 2012 has already brought the Animal Shelter a number of sick and injured animals & birds from around the island but with the continuation of the windy weather we are asking everyone to keep a good look out.

The bad weather means it is difficult for hedgehogs and birds to feed normally and the young seal pups can easily be separated from their mothers.

World Animal Day - 4th October 2011

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:49, 3rd Oct, 2011 | 0

World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October 4. It started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned on locations all over the globe. 4 October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment.

Charlie the Cormorant and Wildlife Unit Developments

Submitted by GSPCA on 14:00, 20th Sep, 2011 | 1

When the winds pick up and the bad weather sets in we are always ready to receive sick and injured wildlife.  Last night we had Charlie a very tired and weak cormorant brought in.

Charlie was given a warm enclosure, plenty of fish and is rapidly improving.  Quite often the weak and hungry sea birds we have brought in just need feeding and heating which can lead to a very fast recovery.

Over the last few weeks we have been working hard improving our wildlife unit to prepare for the seal pups and other animals that we have over the winter months.
