New soft release pens will help Guernsey wildlife thanks to the Friends of Wildlife

Submitted by GSPCA on 09:13, 17th May, 2012 | 0

The GSPCA starts this spring on a good foot after a kind donation from the Friends of Wildlife.

£500 was donated earlier this year and the GSPCA has used the funds to put up two soft release runs for the wildlife that we have in our care.  The outside pens will be used to rehabilitate the many wild animals and birds it has brought in that are found sick or injured around Guernsey.

After they are cared for, healthy and of a good weight the animals are placed in the mesh runs to get use to the elements so it is not a shock when they are finally released.

JOULES of Guernsey’s recent window display caused quite a stir amongst island dog lovers who took a liking to the 10 cardboard canines that resided at the front of the Pollet shop.

‘Since we made the display we had quite a few people asking if they could buy the dogs. The team and I thought this would be a great way to raise some funds for the GSPCA and we are so pleased how much we raised through the sealed bids for each of the cardboard cutouts,’ explained Joules’ Manager Carol Hutchins.
