Last week the GSPCA team were overjoyed to wave off the largest fish ever in our care to his new home.

Bruce at over 18 inches in length arrived at the GSPCA in March 2016 and for over 5 years we have been trying to find him a new home.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said “Bruce is certainly the largest fish I have cared for at the GSPCA and the biggest we have probably ever had.”

“Bruce is a Plecostomus and spends most of his time relaxing and we really hope he will adore his new home.”

Due to Coronavirus the GSPCA is only operating essential services.  All of our rehoming is now online, telephone and through the post as we are avoiding visitors to the Shelter at all costs in line with advice from the States of Guernsey.

With animals still arriving and being rescued, unwanted, stray and abandoned the GSPCA have to look at ways we can help rehome animals in our care.

With Christmas fast approaching and the seal pups Trevor and Temperance growing stronger each day we have just ordered a large quantity of fresh herring and mackerel in preparations to wean them on to solid food, and we are asking if you can help with their rehabilitation.

Both pups are still in intensive care and receiving around the clock treatment but are improving each day.

Currently the GSPCA are in the care of over 30 tropical fish in established tanks looking for homes.

The three tanks have a variety of species all of which  have lived together for some time and the Shelter would like to find homes for the full set ups as well as the fish as groups in the tanks as not to upset them.

The GSPCA often help a variety of species and although it is rare for our services to be called upon to help tropical fish we always do whatever we can.


We hope to see you all at the Soup Kitchen next Tuesday but we need fish for our Grey Seal Pup

We are pleased to announce that Jethou Bumblebee is doing extremely well. 

He has been on fish soup for the past few days and last night devoured his first fish all on his own.

His appetite has picked up and he is going through fish at a rate on knots.  As such the GSPCA are appealing for fish so that we can meet his very hungry belly.

The GSPCA would also like to appeal for a new chest freezer to help store all of the fish he will require to get him back to health.
