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.

GSPCA and Guernsey Animal Aid meet the States to discuss Animal Welfare Laws in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 11:48, 24th Sep, 2021 | 0

Last Tuesday, Guernsey Animal Aid and the GSPCA met with the States Veterinary Office and Deputy Al Brouard,  to discuss concerns and suggestions in regards the Animal Welfare Laws in Guernsey.

The current Guernsey Animal Welfare Ordinance 2012 demands an exceptionally high burden of proof, and securing a prosecution is very rare.

By law, the States Veterinary Officers must give owners a 24-hour notice period, before their office can go and investigate a welfare case, which means that evidence is almost impossible to collect.
