APPEAL – Sark feral Starsky needs an entropion operation

Submitted by Steve on 12:19, 19th Jul, 2023 | 0

Every day the GSPCA rush animals to the vets needing vet care and treatment and one very special cat needing an operation is Starsky.

Starsky is a feral cat from Sark who we are hoping to return him to the island where someone can watch over him once he has had a much needed operation.

Starsky has already had blood tests to check he is healthy other than a nasty eye issue requiring an entropion operation which will cost with care around £500.

The GSPCA Welfare Manager, Lorna Chadwick, is working closely with Sark residents, Gemma and Richard Knight, to humanely manage the Sark feral cat population using a trap, neuter, return program.

With the permission of the Sark Constable and Chief Pleas traps have been placed at key sites and are being monitored closely through out the day. Under the guidance of the States Veterinary Officer, David Chamberlain, and with the help and support of Sark shipping the cats are then being transported back to the GSPCA for assessment.


Do you remember Spot the feral kitten rescued last November? Spot now Minion loving her new home

Submitted by Steve on 17:52, 4th Feb, 2015 | 0

You may remember last November a feral kitten was rescued from the Admiral Park area in Guernsey.

The kitten was extremely nervous and she had a belly full of worms and a coat covered in fleas.

After a series of treatments and care at the GSPCA she was fit enough to go to a new home.

This week at the GSPCA we have received an update and we are pleased to announce she is doing extremely well.

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said "Spot was extremely nervous and in bit of a state when she first arrived at the GSPCA last November."

Although in Guernsey we seem to be well into Autumn young animals are still being found.

Only in the last few days a very young feral kitten has been found in the Admiral Park area.

The 10 week old male kitten which was found late on Friday night was full of worms and fleas and is extremely timid and nervous.

The GSPCA helps care for and rescue thousands of animals every year and without our wonderful volunteers we really couldn't do it.

With the success of the first last month which drew a crowd of 18 new volunteers to the Shelter the second is planned for 6.30pm on the 17th July.

If you see kittens at Icart Point please let the GSPCA know

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:25, 10th Jul, 2013 | 1

This week we have received a young kitten that was rescued out at Icart Point.

The GSPCA are concerned that there may be others and if you are out in the area and come across any please get in touch with the Shelter.

Tiger as he has been named was found extremely thin, no mother in site and full of worms, fleas and may not have survived if he had not been rescued.

This time of year kittens are often rescued and brought into the GSPCA and just this morning another feral was rescued and brought in from the Bouet area who is now named Molly.


Felix really needs your help after more than a year in search of that forever home at the GSPCA

Submitted by GSPCA on 18:07, 13th Nov, 2012 | 0

Felix arrived at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in October in 2011 and has been at the Shelter for well over a year which makes her the longest stay cat in need of a new home. Many of you will know of Victor a cat who also came in around the same time and we are pleased to say he is off to a new home very soon.

Unfortunately Felix came in as a 3 year old semi-feral and as such was extremely nervous and timid after her bad start in life.
