Over the Summer we have been appealing for volunteers to help in many areas and one of those has been helping with the grounds and gardening.

At the end of July we had a lovely team made up of Jo Hardill with her son Jake Hardill and his 2 cousins visiting from Glasgow.

The team of 4 were a huge help weeding, sweeping and thanks to all their hard work had a mini tour with Tim Pellett GSPCA Community and Training Officer.

Tim said “It was lovely to meet Jo, Jake and his young cousins.”

At the GSPCA we have many lovely areas that need caring for and we are currently appealing for volunteers to help around site.

From cutting the grass to helping care for our ponds, wedding to landscaping, pressure washing to dead heading flowers, planting to hedge cutting, watering to caring for pathes there is always plenty to do at the GSPCA.

With the sunny weather and gardens blooming the GSPCA have had a busy few weeks with injured wildlife found in areas that have been strimmed or cut.

The main casualty have been hedgehogs and even mothers with young that have been found whilst an area has been cleared or cut.

Over recent years we have seen a decrease in feral cat colonies thanks to the work of the GSPCA and that of Guernsey Animal Aid Cats, but it only takes one unnetuered female cat and one male to result in a litter of kittens.

This time of year we all venture out in the garden to cut the grass, trim the hedges and tidy the garden whilst we enjoy the spring weather.

The GSPCA is urging islanders to take care as we have already had hedgehog casualties due to garden machinery.

The GSPCA is a very busy environment, with a site that is nearly 4 acres.

We are always extremely busy rescuing and caring for the many animals that come through the door which means it is often difficult to get many of the maintenance jobs around the site completed.

The Shelter has hundreds on metres of fencing which separates our paddocks around site as well as a stable that were falling in a state of disrepair but we were in luck…..

Hedgehogs GuernseyWe are always looking for volunteers to help at the Shelter in a variety of roles. 

With the dramatic increase in hedgehogs over the past 5 months we are appealing for those interested in helping care and clean the hedgehogs here at the Animal Shelter.  In fact we currently have 64 hedgehogs in our care with another on it's way.
