GSPCA helping cats, kittens and a dog from the Irish NW SPCA find new homes in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 13:29, 28th Apr, 2022 | 0

At the GSPCA we help 1000’s of animals every year, but we have seen a drop in numbers of dogs and cats needing our help find homes locally, although we do help them in many other ways.

In recent years we have been trying to help animals from UK and Irish SPCA animal shelters and Association of Dog and Cat Home members, but with the Covid Pandemic this has been very difficult.

The GSPCA help 1000’s of cats every year in many ways from strays to those neglected.

Last October GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne brought 5 cats back from the RSPCA in Wales.

Three of the 5 were a multiple cat household.

Black and white this very poorly stray cat found in Fermain a week ago was rushed to the vets.

With multiple health issues ‘Pushkin’ as this lovely lad has been called is being treated for runny eyes to the more serious issue of a blood coming from his nose.

Pushkin is on treatment and is comfortable but requires a Cat or CT scan which will cost in excess of £900, not to mention the other care and possible operation he may need.

Happily Ever After & Adoption Process over Christmas – Dude settles into his new home

Submitted by Steve on 12:28, 23rd Dec, 2021 | 0

We love to hear how animals are getting on after being rehomed from the GSPCA.

Dude who was recently rehomed was originally caught as a stray using one of our cat traps.

He was an unneutered male and kept fathering kittens and pestering female cats in the area he was living in and didn’t have anyone caring for him.

Ali Le Huray GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said “Dude came in last year.”

“He was not neutered when he arrived and kept chasing female cats.”

GSPCA helping RSPCA cats thanks to Condor Ferries

Submitted by Steve on 21:45, 11th Nov, 2021 | 0

At the GSPCA we help 1000’s of cats every year but the numbers looking for homes have been decreasing over the years.

This has meant from time to time we have space in our cat pens and when we are able we help charities which are members of the Association of Cats and Dogs Home (ADCH) which are based across the British Isles and Ireland.

On Friday 29th October 2021 the GSPCA helped 5 cats from the RSPCA in Wales which were in need.

Huge thanks to the kind person for the fantastic roll of vet bedding from our Amazon Wish List

Submitted by Steve on 22:19, 21st Sep, 2021 | 0

We see so many incredibly kind donations to help our 24/7 work at the GSPCA.

We often have no idea where donations come from and this week we received an incredible donation of a very large roll of purple vet bedding with paw prints.

Vet bedding is a great product as bedding as it is so warm and comfortable and the roll will be primarily used for the many cats that come through our care.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager “At the GSPCA we are often in need of items to help care for the 100’s of animals at the GSPCA.”

RIP Eddie the much loved Shelter cat

Submitted by Steve on 13:56, 1st Sep, 2021 | 0

Many visitors to the GSPCA over the last 15 years will remember Eddie a black cat that arrived as a feral and who decided to make the Animal Shelter his home.

Over the years Eddie relaxed into his older years and became very friendly with many of the team and visitors.

Sadly his health has been deteriorating and on the weekend the GSPCA were extremely saddened as Eddie passed over to Rainbow Bridge.

Eddie will remain in our hearts and our memories.

After a year at the GSPCA diabetic cat Pongo finds his forever home

Submitted by Steve on 16:21, 16th Aug, 2021 | 0

Many may know Pongo the diabetic cat who arrived at the GSPCA during the first lock down.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Pongo has been at the GSPCA for over a year and might know him as he has been into the studios at BBC Guernsey and also featured in a calendar this year which is on sale across the UK from the ADCH.”

“All of the team think the world of Pongo and although there has been some interest due to the costs of food and treatment many were a little put off giving him a good home.”
